Meet Lynne from Australia

Updated: Oct 13, 2020

Following her career as a pharmacist, Lynne Strong decided to change her career path – focusing on dairying. With her husband Michael and son Nicholas, Lynne managed the multi-award winning Clover Hill Dairies at Jamberoo on the NSW South Coast.

Lynne’s role as the powerhouse behind the business won her some of agriculture’s most prestigious awards – including the inaugural Bob Hawke Landcare Award, the National Landcare Primary Producer Award, as well as being both a Eureka Priza and Banksia Award finalist.

While she no longer runs the farm, Lynne expresses her dedication to the agriculture industry by committing herself to developing young people in agriculture – priding herself as a catalyst for change and an inspiration to engage young leaders so they can be agricultural changemakers.

To achieve this, Lynne set up Picture You in Agriculture (PYIA), a Not for Profit Organization in Australia that aims to connect farmers and the community through partnerships between young people.

“Young people may only be 20% of the population, but they are 100% of our future.”

Since PYIA’s establishment 10 years ago, it has built a reputation as a strategic partner that promotes public understanding of farming, and the interconnectedness of health and nutrition and the agricultural sector.

PIYA constantly ensures that young people are not only getting a seat at the table – but that they are also engaged in the conversation and given a license to put their ideas into action.

Under Lynne’s leadership, PYIA will continue to prosper and bloom – transforming the face of agriculture in Australia as we know it.
