Tatyoon is essentially a centre for farmers and their families, offering community and sporting facilities. The majority of residents are involved in primary production.

Off farm income is achieved for some families with teachers, nurses, shop assistants, administrative officers, traveling to Ararat to work, and also bringing a diversity of ideas and experiences back to the community.
