Farrer food on show in October

It is my pleasure to invite local growers across Farrer to participate in a wonderful annual showcase of our region’s produce.

To be staged in Canberra on 16th October, the Farrer Food Fair is a chance for us to show off what we do best in agriculture – food, wine or fibre.

Now in its third year, this twilight event is held in the relaxed surrounds of a garden courtyard at Parliament House, and provides an opportunity for producers and industry representatives to offer a sample of their wares.

In terms of parliamentary participation the Farrer Food Fair has been hugely successful, with several hundred people attending last year’s two hour event, providing you with a chance to discuss all the issues affecting the farm sector with MPs, Senators and parliamentary staff from across the nation.

So, whether you are a small boutique producer or a large-scale operation exporting fresh produce internationally, I would love to hear from you about how we can again showcase our region’s finest.

I am also happy to provide local testimonials from participants to check if this event is the right one for you.
