GRASS & GRAZE
Sunday 16th October 2016
Jason, Belinda and family invite you to come and join them to celebrate the luscious Spring of 2016. The joy of rain this winter has bought life to the grass & soil, filled the dams, giving a great outlook for Summer and created a picturesque farm!
The day involves you coming on a tour of McIvor Farm seeing all the ‘Grass’ and of course pigs! – you can select a morning (10am) or afternoon (2pm) session and then back at the Farm Gate Shop to ‘Graze’ on lunch – a delicious selection of McIvor Farm small goods and pork plus regional sourced produce salads created by award winning Masons of Bendigo.
While you are grazing, sit back and relax and enjoy listening to locally talented musicians, a drop of wine and local beer or some home-made cordial and treats.
There are Limited Tickets – so bookings are essential!
Again we are offering you our delicious award winning Ham and Pork for you to feature on your Christmas table and share with friends & family.
Look in the Farm e-Shop ‘Christmas 2016’ to see all the different options available this year.
We are still finalising all the Pick Up Options….

We hope to open on Sundays on long weekends or as the year gets closer to Christmas – but just at the minute we need to have a bit of a break over Winter (and have some family time or get some extra jobs done around the farm & house). So we hope you understand – and again you can always book an appointment or give us a call so we can make sure we are around the Shop.
