image for Australia lists Farmville Crops as exports

CANBERRA- Legislation has passed the Senate today, allowing for Farmville Farmers to export their crops to potential overseas clients.

This legislation comes after months of protests from disgruntled Farmville farmers, or 'facebook farmers', who under the old trade legislation were denied clearance to export.

The news has been welcomed by chairman of the Help for Farmville Farmers Lobby Chris Jackson.

'It's a great day for virtual farmers everywhere' he said 'This will provide much needed revenue for the country.

Gloria Harvey, an inner Melbourne Farmville farmer, is ready to take on the world.

"We've been waiting for this for so long' she said 'The US and UK have been trading crops for ages. Now it's the Aussies' turn."

"This will bring in millions of Farmville dollars...and Australian dollars too I guess."

Newly titled Minister for Trade and Virtual Trade Bruce Miller says the door is open for any virtual crop grower.

"Of course this doesn't just mean Farmville farmers are exclusive' he said 'those working on their farms in Country Life or even Frontierville will be able to export crops".

The legislation will take effect 1st January, 2011
