GRASS & GRAZE

Sunday 16th October 2016dsc_2607

(The McIvor Farm version of Paddock to Plate!)

This was a great day out – we Sold Out and everyone is asking about next year!!

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.Tasting Plate

While you are grazing, sit back and relax and enjoy listening to locally talented musicians, a drop of Fowles Wine and local Tooborac Beer or some home-made cordial and treats.

This event supports Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA) – Fair Food Weekffw-logo

With this year one of the themes – ‘Fair Food Farming’!

WHAT IS FAIR FOOD WEEK?

Coordinated by the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA), to support the Peoples’ Food Plan, Australia’s Fair Food Week shines a light on our new story of food. Over the week — 16-23 October 2016 — you will discover events across the country that will attract, intrigue and entertain you.
Legal Defence Fund & Donation from Tickets SoldAustralian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA) is also setting up a Legal Defence Fund and are asking for support.  From every Adult ticket sold to ‘Grass & Graze’ we will donate $10 to the campaign. If you wish to contribute more to support the establishment of a Legal Defence Fund for eaters and farmers across the country.

Despite growing concerns about the nutrition, safety, and ethics of the food we eat, some regulators are making it harder for Australian small-scale farmers to produce ethical, ecologically-sound, nutritious, and delicious food for their communities.

Food producers are copping the full brunt of abuse of power by regulators. The issues include: communities who want access to raw milk from local dairies, farms doing on-farm processing facing unfair and inconsistent regulation of their facilities, and many others grappling with outdated and illogical definitions in local planning schemes.

The time to defend the growing movement of small-scale food producers has come.
