After its cancellation last year, Wandin Silvan Field Days will be back better than ever on October 15th and 16th this year.
The Field Days celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2019 and the organising committee are committed to producing a bigger and better event in 2021. The field days are the premier showcase for horticultural and agricultural producers of the Yarra Valley region and the organisers welcome ideas and suggestions that will contribute to its ongoing success.
The Wandin Silvan Field Days provide the opportunity for exhibitors to present their diverse range of horticultural and agricultural products and services, information and demonstrations and general lifestyle product range directly to patrons.
It provides the ideal forum for exposure of businesses from not just the local region, but across Australia with exhibitors able to showcase and present new innovations and techniques making their way onto the market.
Local farmers, and primary producers generally, can take advantage of the unique opportunity to inspect the latest in farming technology and talk directly to experts from the nation’s leading suppliers.
The principal focus of the Wandin- Silvan Field Days is aimed at these many and varied local primary and agricultural producers – from orchards, nurseries, and vineyards through to hobby farmers and the general public.
The event’s committee actively encourages the participation of relevant exhibitors who are able to support the theme, with traditional exhibits ranging from general farm machinery, light industrial equipment, motor vehicles and motor bikes, irrigation equipment and water tanks to information on the latest pest and weed control, fertilisers and chemicals and fruit packaging and labelling. Of particular interest will be the popular General Interest Marquee which will once again provide the opportunity for a diverse range of arts and crafts, merchandise and local produce.
Members of the Yarra Valley Machinery Preservation Society will once again feature a working display of their much-loved machinery – always a popular attraction for visitors at the field days each year.
Many hours and care are devoted to the restoration of the machinery of yesteryear, and the members are very happy to share their stories and discuss the features of their displays.
