Upcoming events for small farms
We are excited to introduce a new event series called the Farmers’ Postcard. The Farmers’ Postcard events are short and to the point (2-3 hours), covering a specific topic in more depth. Perfect for busy people.
FARMERS POSTCARD – Saws and Knots (Members Only)
Wednesday 3 July 5.30-7.30 pm
This one is about small farmers sharing skills with other small farmers. It’s specially for our members and tackles some things that you have told us you want to learn more about. Not only that, there will be a free sausage sizzle and a chance to relax and meet other small farmers.
Learn how to sharpen chainsaws with Allan Spencer and tie knots with Chris Curtis.
BYO drinks and a plate to share
