In recent years there has been a wave of new buyers of agricultural land around the fringes of urban
districts and in attractive rural landscapes in parts of Australia. These new arrivals—referred to in this
report as small lifestyle farmers—are changing the demographics of these areas. Small lifestyle
farmers, with their predominantly urban backgrounds, are likely to have different values and
aspirations compared with those of their traditional farming neighbours. In parts of the rural landscape,
traditional farmers are now a minority rural landholder group.
