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 2012 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 shows their Friday morning gym sessions and is a great visual snapshot of what Fat Farmers is all about! Each of our groups has it's own identity. Some are men only but many are inclusive of women and also children. And it's not all about going to the gym. We have a couple of walking groups too...

Find your local group on the map & get involved!
Or contact us to start a new group for your community...
