Our History

AAF was developed as a dedicated branch of InFront Australian Business Solutions, an equipment finance broker. With several team members specialising in the agricultural sector, we discovered clients really weren’t having their needs met or their priorities understood by other business brokers.

With such an enthusiastic response from the industry, Australian Agri Finance was born as a specialised agricultural equipment finance brokerage. We tailor our service offering to the needs of busy farmers who appreciate hassle-free solutions, without the hurdles of going straight to the banks.

Where You Can Find Us

Australian Agri Finance currently has offices in Western Australia and South Australia. We visit a vast range of regions across these states, and you can always get in touch with us online or via phone.

The Australian Agri Finance team regularly attends local agricultural shows and field days. Be sure to keep an eye on our social media to find out where we’ll be next!
