About

CussonsMedia is based on a simple premise
To create authentic content that engages, inspires and drives change

Why do we focus on agriculture?

Because after a lifetime of being in and around agriculture – both practical and scientific – it’s our passion. Simple.

What makes us great at what we do is a unique skill set in three key areas.

Agriculture – Media – Science

About Us

About Us

As an agribusiness, creating content to help you stand out in the field can be challenging. When you work in agriculture, you’re lucky to live, work and play in beautiful regions across the country.

However, finding a media production company who understands both the practical elements and science of agriculture, and speaks your language is difficult. Getting that right team on board can save you time and money, but most importantly, it will help you create your most engaging content yet!

CussonsMedia is a specialist rural media agency based in Toowoomba, Queensland, producing high-end video, written and audio content in paddocks across Australia and New Zealand. It is headed by Directors David and Kelly Cussons.

As agricultural scientists with farming experience who specialise in creating innovative content media, David and Kelly bring a wide range of skills and knowledge in media, agriculture and science to CussonsMedia clients.

Agriculture

CussonsMedia is in the unique situation for a rural media agency of having an ‘in-house’ agronomist – Kelly is a trained professional agronomist who worked fulltime for Elders for many years, and still provides agronomic services for ‘Kunmallup Pastoral Co’, her family’s farming operation in WA. Key areas of expertise include weeds, disease and pest control, nutrition and rotation management for canola, wheat, barley, oats, lupins and sub clover. She also sits on the board for Kunmallup and manages grain marketing for the business.

With Directors Kelly and David both hailing from farming families in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, they have in-depth knowledge of practical crop and livestock production. David and Kelly managed the Cussons family farms in Western Australia for many years, developing a strong understanding of practical agriculture.
