Chairman of the organizing Committee, Glen Drury said that the attendance of more than 4000 people at the event last year showed that there was a strong interest in small scale production systems that could be applied to smaller blocks and backyards. “People are very keen to learn more about producing home grown food and fibre for their own use as well as the possibilities for profitable sideline production” he said.

Feedback received from  more than 300 people who attended the 2014 event was overwhelmingly positive with the main theme being people wanting more of everything – more stalls, more information, more animals, more food …….  Feedback from the stallholders showed that inquiries and business generated greatly exceeded their expectations. Some had so many sales they had to send runners back to their stores to replenish their stock during the day.

The Committee is using the feedback for planning this year’s event so people attending can expect even more variety and number of stalls, exhibitors, information sessions and food outlets. There will also be more places to sit for those who just want to catch up with other landholders to share information and make new connections. The Small Farms Field Days appeal to everyone interested in small scale agriculture and livestock keeping, horticulture, and simply producing food in their back-yard.

The Committee is once again inviting organizations and businesses to sponsor the Field Day. Three levels of sponsorship are available and sponsors will receive excellent promotional opportunities in return for their support.
