Toby Jones (Rural Financial Counsellor)

Toby's family has been based in Bathurst for around 50 years and while Toby's career has meant living in Sydney and abroad, he has always considered the family farm to be home. Toby joined the RFCSCR in November 2018, based in Bathurst.

Following 30 years in the corporate world, both in Australia and overseas, Toby and his wife returned home to Bathurst to take over the family farm from his elderly parents. In 2014 he completed his Agricultural Cert IV and has spent the last few years rebuilding the farm and drought proofing while dealing with an unprecedented dry period. Toby found this process challenging, and even with his father's guidance, it has been difficult to make the farm productive. He has found that his business skills have been fundamental in planning and managing, but recognises that the best laid plans are only as good as the reality the conditions allow.

Toby and his wife have two adult children now settled in their careers in Sydney, and despite the 'baptism of fire' of returning home to the farm in the middle of a drought, they're both enjoying being back in Bathurst and particularly on the farm.
