See you at Seymour
Enter the fascinating nerve-centre of alternative farming, where innovation and one-of-a-kind production techniques are integral.
The 26th annual Seymour Alternative Farming Expo brings together the best in Australia, in an informative and entertaining event from February 16 to 18.
Boasting up to 500 exhibitors across the three days, this bustling expo features demonstrations, food and liquor tastings, informative lecture series, a market style shopping experience, live entertainment and the opportunity to talk in person with the alternative farmers themselves.
Cutting edge industries take centre stage this year, such as the special guest Grubs Up insect farm from Western Australia which farms crickets for both human and animal consumption.
Be amazed by the skill and expertise in the 2018 AWPA Victorian Whipcracking and Australian Bullock Whip Championships, which were previously featured at the Royal Melbourne Show and will now be hosted by the expo.
Get set to laugh and be highly entertained by this year’s pig-racing and pig-diving demonstrations.
Children are celebrated at this year’s expo too, with DIY projects, camel rides, an animal petting farm and all sorts of unique animals to see.
The expo will be held at Kings Park in Seymour.
