BFF Partner

Bee Friendly Farming PARTNER

In order to support our pollinators, commercial and individual sponsors can become a Bee Friendly Farming PARTNER

BFF PARTNER registers sponsorship from companies and individuals, but also includes commercial apiarists who do not actively manage their own landscapes, but wish to support the program.

These annual sponsorships provide the resources necessary to build and maintain this program, benefiting pollinator health and food security. Sponsorships and donations will not only benefit pollinators, they will benefit us all.

Bees and other pollinators are threatened, but with support from BFF PARTNER members, Pollinator Partnership and Wheen Bee Foundation are developing programs that help improve pollinator health on landscapes across the globe.

Before applying, please view the logo use agreement.

Making your application

Before proceeding with your application to be BFF PARTNER, please ensure you have downloaded and read the BFF Australia Handbook and checked you have all the required documentation with the Application Checklist.

Partner Benefits

Targeted and high impact investment:

  • Targeting farm land-use practice change has the potential for widespread impact because agricultural businesses operate across just over half (51%) of Australia’s total land area
  • Country and urban landholders share a common interest in terms of their reliance on pollinators to underpin food security and ecosystem health. Urban consumers can be engaged to support positive change through their food buying habits (e.g. choosing BFF CERTIFIED products)
