Local producers for self-drive/ open farm experiences (we encourage producers to advise of set times for this option)
Experiences that provide an authentic regional experience.
What will Discover Farming provide for you?
Discover Farming provides an umbrella under which local producers, groups, organisations/ businesses can run their own on farm experiences or activities aligned to our objectives.
Discover Farming will promote all accepted farm experiences or activities through:
Inclusion under the Discover Farming umbrella and associated marketing
Inclusion in the Discover Farming printed program and on the website
Promotion of your farm experience and relevant business news/ imagery through selected marketing activities (social media, public relations, advertising)
At least 1 face to face meeting with Discover Farming management committee to assist with activity roll-out
If you require marketing collateral to be created (e.g. logo, photography or video), we encourage you to make contact with the committee ASAP to discuss what support we can provide. Please note a cost may be incurred.
What is my role if I am part of Discover Farming?
As a host of a farm experience, you will be responsible for managing your own activity and associated costs. You will be responsible for your own public liability insurance and permits, if necessary.
Each producer will be required to meet with a committee member at least once during the lead-up to the farm experience.
