Come along to a scrumptious evening of local delights – and meet other like-minded people! Later in the month, enjoy a long table dinner crafted by renowned local chefs Peter and Kerry Hodges from Tillerman’s Restaurant using locally-sourced produce and served with local wine and beer. The evening, part of The Great Lakes Food Trail, will help you learn about life on a farm with tips and techniques for setting up farming enterprises on the coast. If you’ve recently moved to the country or considering it, this is the event for you!
While you indulge in the local cuisine, hear from guest speakers.
Andrew Smith, a third-generation dairy farmer who brings fresh perspectives and ideas will speak on conventional larger-scale farming opportunities. Brett Cooper, a well-known local permaculture expert, will talk about setting up a small farm operation; and Great Lakes Food Trail producer, as well as Mid Coast Landcare Farmer of the Year, Andrew Yeo will speak on the tips and traps of farming on the coast.
