See you at Sey­mour

Southern Riverina news - - RURAL OUTLOOK -

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.
