Baby camels a hit at food festival

MIDLAND shoppers were able to cuddle baby camels and sample local produce at Gilbert’s Midland Food Festival.

Organiser Fabiola Pinheiro said the festival attracted a good crowd with plenty of families in attendance.

The baby camels and cooking up an Italian feast were just two of the highlights at the food festival.

Good Earth Dairy
invited shoppers to snap selfies with the two, 10-week old camel calves that were special guests at the gourmet event,  which showcased local produce.

Sipping on free samples of camel milk, which Good Earth Dairy says is a superfood from the outback, capped off an exciting day for many of the tiny tots and their parents who lined up to pat the cute-as-a-button creatures.

Chef Alessandro Ragazzi whipped up some delectable delights with the help of Genobile Food Distributors.

Gran & Pops jams and relishes, kombucha and fresh salads were some of the other treats that visitors savoured.
