Our mission is to inspire and encourage rural communities to improve their health and wellbeing through physical activity.

Welcome to
Fat Farmers: Rural Health Initiative

It all started back in 2010 when three farmers at Maitland on Yorke Peninsula (SA) started going to the gym. And this original group is still going strong! The below clip gives a snapshot of their Friday morning gym sessions. But we also have groups that are inclusive of women and children and some meet for a weekly walk rather than a gym workout. Each group has it's own identity depending on who is involved in that particular community!
