National Farmers Warehouse (NFW) commenced operations in March 2008 with the purchase of Elite Agri-Services in Miles.
NFW expanded in May 2008 with the purchase of Coonabarabran Fertilizers, a business that included a transport and contract spraying operation.

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 bases its business on providing excellent customer service with very competitive pricing.
NFW prides itself with having excellent staff (now over 50 members) with a broad range of knowledge and experience in all facets of agribusiness.

This focus has broadened and includes Broadacre (agricultural chemicals, seeds and fertilisers); Produce; Animal Health Products; Fencing supplies and general farm merchandise.
