Welcome to Buy a Bale

Supporting Aussie farmers and rural communities throughout Australia. This drought appeal campaign is providing meaningful support for farmers by delivering hay and other essential items to farmers who have no feed left for their cattle.

All donations to our drought assistance campaign have a four fold effect. Some hay is donated, some we buy, so we’re feeding a hay farmer and their family. Some of our truckies are donating their time and diesel, some loads we’re paying for, so we’re feeding truckies and their families. Donations towards our Country Card inject immediate cash into the rural towns, city cash going bush. Finally what hay we deliver saves farmers cash that they can continue to spend on other items.

Australia, donating to Buy a Bale is helping not just farmers but their communities and so many more people.
Thank you on behalf of our farmers for your support.

Beach To Bush Ride

This September, in an aim to connect Australia’s Beach and Bush communities, we’re rolling out an Australia-wide bike ride where we are encouraging You to get on your bike (or spin bike) to ride for our farmers.

The Beach to Bush Ride gives us the opportunity to assist in this worthy cause and concentrate our efforts where help is needed most.

How it works? Measure out a distance between a major country town and a major beach, and challenge yourself to accumulate the equivalent distance over the month of September.

This is your opportunity to really make a difference to the many communities across NSW that have been hit hard by the current drought. To sign up for some fun and hard work: Register Now.
