Gidgegannup Small Farm Field Day

The Countryman Gidgegannup Small Farm Field Day is back again with a fungal theme.
May 16, 2024

THIS year’s Countryman Gidgegannup Small Farm Field Day is shaping up to be another great event, jam packed full of information, exhibitors and entertainment on Sunday, May 26 from 9am to 4pm.   

Once again, the field day will be joined by the Honey Festival and the Slow Food Movement with the Olive Festival, with a larger food and wine display in the hall and entertainment in the café area.

Informative talks are scheduled for all the various talk centres around the ground and the Department of Primary Industry and Regional Development (DPIRD) will be on hand ready to help out with any information required or assistance they can give with your animals and biosecurity.

You can visit them in the livestock area and the small landholders marquee, as well as a range of talks, advice and demonstrations on livestock.

The theme this year is ‘toadstools, mushrooms and fungi’ which has generated a lot of interest with a talk from fungi fanatic Faye Acaro.   

A stall by Mycocasa - Jay not only grows edible mushrooms, but also makes mushroom stock and medicinal tinctures.   The Discovery Trail for the youngsters also involves searching for toadstools by visiting as many areas as possible.

The bush veranda is also the place to visit with the potting paradise and the worm farm for the young ones and more gardening advice from Susa’s Gardening Sanctuary.

The café and entertainment centre has entertainment throughout the day, including puppetry, storytelling from the Freedom Fairies and lots more.   

Around the grounds there will be the Mad Tatters dancing, Paul Davies with his wonderful music, the Enchanted Stilt walkers and so much more, as well as a new dedicated Gardeners Dell over by the café and entertainment area.

Don’t miss Chris Ferreira’s talk and see his demonstration of a firewise garden being installed on site.

There really is something for everyone, and the cost is still only $15 for adults, with free entry for children under 16 years.   

You can buy tickets at the gate, with gate six for credit card and cash, and gate two for cash only, as well as QR codes up at each gate.   

The easiest way is to buy your tickets online in advance here.
