Fun, Friendship & Understanding
FarmDay is when a farm family hosts a city family for a day of real hands-on experiences
and a greater understanding of the day-to-day life of the farming family.
FarmDay is at a Crossroad
Over the years FarmDay has developed wonderful support and goodwill from around Australia as evidenced by the wonderful feedback we get from our participants, both rural and urban; our extraordinary national media coverage; and the overwhelming and ongoing interest from families still keen to participate. However, after seven hugely successful years, FarmDay has come to a crossroads. The short story is that FarmDay will not be going ahead in May 2013. The Board of Directors are taking some time to examine legal and logistical hurdles that have appeared, and looking at options that will allow FarmDay to continue its unique work in bridging the Rural-Urban divide.
This decision to suspend the event has not been made lightly, nor without regret. None the less, we feel that the importance of the future of FarmDay in developing strong, positive and long lasting bonds between farming families and city families is vital, and therefore we believe the job needs to be done right!
We look forward to a new FarmDay Future and hope you will join us for the journey!
