HASTINGS FARM GATE TOUR VISIT FARMS GROWING FOOD SUSTAINABLY

Saturday 12, Sunday 13 and Monday 14 June 2021 are the dates to keep aside for this much-loved event. The Hastings Farm Gate Tour is a selfdrive programme covering the greater Hastings, Port Macquarie and Camden Haven regions with 15 properties running tours at set times over the three days of the June long weekend. This event offers visitors a unique opportunity to visit farms growing food sustainably - many of which are not usually open to the public. The host farmers will take visitors on a tour of their properties highlighting production methods, conservation initiatives and unique aspects of their property. The tours provide opportunities to meet local food producers, meet the farm animals, learn about food production, talk regenerative agriculture, taste local produce and be a part of the local food movement. Stretching from urban farms in Port Macquarie to the beautiful Lorne Valley and Upper Hastings, the Hastings Farm Gate Tour is a must-do exploration of the Greater Hastings region. And whilst visiting the farms, there will be the opportunity to visit other attractions in the region – the stunning Ellenborough waterfall, the historic Kindee Bridge and North Brother mountain views are just starters. Host farm opening / tour times and information and a map overview are provided in a booklet / ticket, which will be available for purchase online from mid-May. The price is $40 for one pdf booklet per carload / family. Details can be found at: www.pmhsn.org.au/events_ projects/hastings-farm-gate-tour/ The Hastings Farm Gate Tour has found a home with the Port Macquarie Hastings Sustainability Network. The 2021 tour has been auspiced by the Port Macquarie Community Garden and funded by the Energy Forever Sustainability Grants Programme with additional funding from the Port Macquarie Hastings Council.
