On Australia’s annual FarmDay, held on the weekend of 28 and 29 May 2011, farmers across the country are encouraged to open their gates and welcome a city family to spend a day on their farm.

Since 2007, close to 1000 city families have visited working farms around the country on FarmDay to gain a better understanding and appreciation of this important industry.

“We’ve found that the city families who have participated in FarmDay are now our greatest advocates in metropolitan areas and are educating their friends and family on the importance of supporting Australia’s farmers,” said FarmDay Founder, Deb Bain.
She said it is also important that urban families understand what impact events like the January floods on the east coast and fires and drought on the west coast have on agricultural production and supply.
FarmDay is a not-for profit organisation that is supported by Meat and Livestock Australia.
