Thu 26th Farm World
Venue: Lardner Park

Farm World 2020

Thursday 26th March to Sunday 29th March 2020

Farm World is a 4 day event held at Lardner via Warragul. Approximately 55,000 people pass through the gates from all over Australia and New Zealand and we often speak to other overseas visitors each year with Thursday and Friday being primarily farmers with the weekends being families. Eastern Region has been a part of this event for well over 20 years and has moved locations several times until we now reside in Lakeside Pavillion with a concrete floor, powered sites and solid walls after many years in marquees.

We have exhibitors displaying animals both huacaya and suri and many product examples from bags of fleece to knitted garments both handmade and imported, to all types of craft examples, leading brands and fine Australian Alpaca garments and products and daily spinning demonstrations.

There are tables and chairs supplied for visitors to sit and talk or observe with kids activities offered at kid’s tables and chairs with colouring sheets and pencils available.

This is an excellent opportunity for alpaca breeders of the Region not just locals as often thought to promote their own stud but we see it as promoting breeders from other areas of the VER, other regions and the industry as a whole.

Come and join us for a fun filled four days of “ talking alpaca “.

We see this display as a major marketing and promotion opportunity for any breeder both big and small and it allows for a great chance of networking  and promotion within the region.

For more information refer to the Booking Form.
