Since its inception in 2017, the partnership between Landcare Australia and The a2 Milk Company has provided more than $850,000 of funding for sustainability initiatives with positive environmental and business outcomes for a2 Milk farms.

This includes the 2022 a2 Milk® Sustainable Agriculture Landcare Grants that are providing $215,000 of funding to seven dairy farmers in New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia their grant projects (see below list of grant recipients).

The projects, funded for up to $35,000 each, focus on different initiatives to enhance sustainability and achieve positive environmental and business outcomes, such as improved water quality, enhanced productivity, and better soil health, as well as energy reduction initiatives.
