While some members of PPS knew each other when they joined the group, many new acquaintances were made at group events and now people look forward to seeking new information as well reinforcing contacts when PPS comes together. Several PPS members have formed strong friendships by being part of the group. One aspect of the PPS group is the mutual respect for other members, while this is a fairly normal state for farming people; it is shown at a very high level within PPS. The group attracts a wide range of ages to events and the opinions of all are important. The current management committee has an age range of 25 to 70 years bringing much experience and lots of new ideas to the group.
Membership of PPS is $66 ($60 + GST) per farm business annually.
