National Farmers Warehouse (NFW) commenced operations in March 2008 with the purchase of Elite Agri-Services in Miles. We then expanded in May 2008 with the purchase of Coonabarabran Fertilisers, a business that included a transport and contract spraying operation.
NFW further expanded in January 2009 with a branch in Meandarra on the Western Downs. This branch now operates in conjunction with the Miles branch sharing agronomy and administration services.
Queensland Farmers Warehouse (QFW) started operating in Toowoomba in 1997, soon opening branches in Warwick, Cecil Plains and Cottonvale (near Stanthorpe).
QFW and NFW merged in June 2009 to form one large company.
A joint venture between NFW and Namoi Ag in Carroll (Gunnedah) commenced in February 2010.
NFW currently operates 6 Rural Merchandise Stores across Queensland and New South Wales.
NFW became a member of NRI (National Rural Independents) in 2011, giving us greater purchasing power, and access to a wider range of products.
NFW bases its business on providing excellent customer service with very competitive pricing.
NFW prides itself with having excellent staff (now over 25 staff members), with a broad range of knowledge and experience in all facets of agriculture & agribusiness. We are very proud to be independently owned and close to celebrating 25 years in business.
We have 3 experienced Agronomists within the group to help farmers with their agronomy needs. A lot of our NFW staff members either have grown up on family farms, or own their own farms now. This translates to more enthusiastic staff who love what they do and have made a career out of agriculture.
NFW was initially established as an Independent Rural Retailer with a focus on Cotton and Broadacre cereal cropping supplies. This focus has broadened and includes Broadacre (agricultural chemicals, seed and fertiliser), Produce, Animal Health Products, Fencing supplies, irrigation and general farm merchandise. We stock over 4000 products in store.
NFW, particularly the Toowoomba branch has a major slice of the equine business around the Darling Downs servicing racehorse trainers and horse studs with feeds and supplements.
At the end of 2013 we commenced a new venture within the business. We have a licensed Vet on staff and wholesale veterinary drugs to Vet practices all over the Darling Downs in Qld.
We also stock a large range of other niche products to distinguish us from our competitors.
Like all business’s we never stop analysing our business and its future direction and our focus is on you the customer.
Thank you all for your loyal and continued support of our business. May we all work together into the future.
