Farm World 2019
April 11, 2019 @ 8:30 am - April 14, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Farm World returns in 2019 celebrating 52 years of tradition at Lardner Park. Recognised as one of Victoria’s premier regional agricultural shows, this iconic event provides a platform to showcase the best of agribusiness, the latest in technology, equipment and information and provides an ideal opportunity to get up close and chat with the experts.
In 2019 we’re celebrating our farming community with a “Love Your Farmer” theme. Throughout the event you will see a host of activations and opportunities to celebrate the significant contribution our farmers make and the importance of this $13b food & fibre industry.
There’s plenty at Farm World for both urban pioneers and lifestyle farmers interested in equipment, farm machinery, DIY passions, sustainable gardening and horticulture, drone innovation, outdoor living including boats and vehicles plus masses of must-have tools. And it wouldn’t be Farm World without a huge variety of animals. Come and chat to the cattle breeders and check out the different breeds, watch the Beloka Kelpies round up sheep, learn to walk an alpaca or get up close and cuddly with the animals in Farmer Darryl’s Animal Farm.
A new addition to the program in 2019 will be an extravaganza of the Australian Stock Horse breed with 4 days of action-packed ultimate horsemanship including a Super Horse Open Challenge and Junior Challenge, Dan Steers from Double Dan Australia, ASH Team Challenges and PCAV Team Competitions.
The Telstra Women in Ag lunch, a signature event and highlight for many, will feature a spectacular line up of presenters. Click the link opposite to read all about this year’s speakers and secure your ticket to this awesome event.
On the Saturday and Sunday only, the Events Centre will come alive with Farm World Market Place. Bring your basket and stock up on garlic, cupcakes, handmade wooden toys, soaps, sweet treats, jams and condiments, jewellery and heaps more. And just in time for Easter, Bushies Bakery from Glengarry will be ready to tempt you with their famous variety of Hot Cross Buns – better get in early for these!
Keen for fitness and a bit of a challenge? Make sure you enter Farm World’s Fittest Farmer, located in the Entertainment Arena on Sunday. Some great prizes are up for grabs including a holiday to Queensland, so give us a call and we can sign you up; or if you’re happy to be a spectator, come along and cheer on the participants as they battle it out for the crown! For football enthusiasts, call by the Evans Petroleum stand and take part in some handball games and activities with AFL Gippsland.
Shop until you drop with plenty of retail shopping options both indoors and out – add in a parcel delivery service to assist with all those shopping purchases, and you have the perfect way to shop! And whilst Farm World’s landscape is a little bit up and down, there’s no need to be concerned if your mobility is a challenge as we have fantastic single and double scooters available for hire from Event Scooter Hire.
Farm World boasts a huge variety of unique and memorable experiences and value for all visitors including helicopter rides where you can experience Farm World from an aerial perspective, agri-tech zones, cattle dogs, animal nursery, pony and camel rides, live music, food + drink, demonstrations and presentations, masses of retail shopping and so much more! Great fun and entertainment for all the family – we can’t wait to welcome you to Farm World 2019.
