Farm Gate Tour 2017

Take yourself on tour with Hastings Landcare's 2017 Farm Gate Tour where you can experience where good food comes from and discover how our local farmers are protecting our natural environment and practicing sustainable agriculture. This year you can self-drive to over 10 properties, meet the farmers and learn about open range food production, Landcare initiatives and the local food movement. Farm Gates are open at set times over the 3 days of the June long weekend so you can tailor your tour to visit as few or as many farms as you wish..

 

Stretching from the oyster farms of the Hastings River to the lush grazing valleys of the Wauchope hinterland, the Farm Gate Tour is a must do exploration of the Greater Hastings region's stunning scenery. You get to visit farms not usually open to the public. Enterprises range from large to small scale holdings and include garlic, essential oils, cattle breeding, conservation sanctuaries, native bush-foods, pigs, sheep, dairy cows, free range chickens and up close animal encounters for children to enjoy.

We have rescheduled some of the Farm Gate Tours  that cancelled. They are scheduled for Sunday the 27th August 2017;

  • 10:30am Naked Farmers Tour, lunch available($15) at 12:30pm (bookings essential 6587 4383 or )
