The Balingup Small Farm Field Day is being held on Saturday April 6th 9am till 3.30pm on Balingup Town Oval. It is the largest of its kind in the area and has been running every year since 1991 except for COVID cancellations. Farm visits run on 6th and 7th April.

It showcases many aspects of small farming in a local community including caring for the land and animals, growing plants and food, using natural ingredients, making crafts and clothes from natural products, wellbeing and the latest technology and vehicles.

This year the theme is ‘Where Nature Thrives’ and there are many talks and stalls related to this.

Wadandi-Pibulmun Cultural Custodian Zac Webb will share his knowledge about looking after Country by the Six Noongar Seasons. Troy and Pascale from Free Range Living will be sharing experiences tackling problem weeds with pigs and, the pros and cons of dairy goats, whilst Rod Cary from Geographe Community Landcare talks about growing your own 'bush tucker' & managing natural bushland on your property. Charles Otway will share his skills on compost, growing food and healthy soil, plus Adrian Williams speaks on the critical issue of water planning and auditing for small farms. Beekeeping information is available from the WA Apiarists Society,
plus demonstrations of different arts and machinery processes across the Oval all day.
