Field day essential for small farms
ASPIRING small farmers will gather on Sunday at a delightful Mary Valley property that produces olive products and teas under the brand Obi Obi Essentials.
The field day topic is Creating a Mixed Enterprise and the session starts at 2pm in the Obi Obi Valley near Kenilworth.
It is the second of at least eight field days that continue the summer school program offered through the Mary Valley Country Harvest Co-operative at Dagun.
Co-ordinator Elaine Bradley secured Federal Government funding to prepare and deliver the summer school program, which consisted of two days of training and workshops in February and the ensuing field days.
The field day on Sunday will give participants an insight into the 80ha Johnson property near Kenilworth.
