Organic farmers invite public to ‘Day on the Farm’ to see how their food is grown



australian organic farmersOrganic farmers Liz Clay and Wally Brown are inviting the public onto their farm in Noojee to see how food is grown and have a home-grown meal.

How and where our food is grown is increasingly important to consumers, so understanding the origins of fresh produce is gaining momentum with on-farm visits.

“We’re trying to, as a farmers’ market, promote the connection of people back to the farm, ” Ms Clay said

“I have a lovely time out there when I harvest the produce, thinking about who is going to eat this food, and it’s a really nice thing to have running through your mind.

“It takes your mind off the back-bending work you have to do, so it certainly connects me with people who will eat this food.

“I know there’s going to be a lot of people from Melbourne coming down to visit the farm.”

Ms Clay and Mr Brown grow potatoes, pumpkins, corn, beetroot, cabbage, lettuce, broccolis, peas, and snow peas.
