Otway Food and Fibre Showcase

Colac Showgrounds, Corner Bruce Street and Princess Highway, Colac, Victoria, 3250
28 Apr 2019

The Otway region is gearing up to showcase everything locally grown and sown. Some ready to eat and the rest harvested to take home and add a culinary spin.

Mid-Autumn people can enjoy a selection of the best Otway grown produce including olives, cheeses, native bush foods, fruits and vegetables, honey, meats, small goods, baked goods, wines and brewed delights.

Growers and event organisers want to share their passion for turning humble soil and grass into quality food and fibre, shining a spotlight on the skilled, passionate and diverse growers around.
This year, not only will people be able taste and purchase local produce, as well as talk to and learn from local growers and makers. There will be leaders at the forefront of cultural landscape literacy, soil biology, reinvigorating local food systems, forging pathways for young farmers, fostering farming start-ups, holistic land management and cooks sharing their stories and experiences.

Develop growing and making talents by taking part in demonstrations and workshops around the theme of small holding skills like building soil and compost, whole animal butchery, bee keeping, poultry management, regenerative farming, the lifecycle of wool, native bush foods, shearing and creative kids food and fibre activities.
