The ‘A day on the farm’ field day was held on January 18, 2017 at Prom Country Cheese at Moyarra.  This was another well attended day with over 80 people attending.  Visitors to the sheep milk cheese producing farm saw the sheep being worked by a very personable kelpie, looked at the pasture and paddocks during a farm walk along with some of the Landcare shelter and waterway protection plantings.  Unfortunately the plantings could not stop the bridge being washed away during last year’s floods, however the banks of the creek seemed to be kept intact by the well-established trees. After looking at the sheep milking shed, participants completed the farm walk by returning to the cheese making room/café, where Joel from Bass Coast Landcare Network had the lamb sausages sizzling. A cheese plater allowed the attendees to sample the wonderful award winning cheese made on the farm. There were a lot of people from outside Landcare that attended this field day, a completely new demographic (families, holiday makers), got to see where food comes from.

South Gippsland Landcare Network

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work and meet. The South Gippsland Landcare Network stretches from Mt Best to Mt Lyal, and along the prom coast. It’s made up of 16 local groups working to preserve and protect the natural environment, while also enhancing the long-term sustainability of farming in this part of Victoria. We’re proud to work across both Bunurong and Gunaikurnai country, and to recognise the rich history embedded in this land we now share. As a network, we’re a diverse group – made up of primary producers, hobby farmers, tree changers, backyard gardeners and environmentalists of all sorts. This page is part of our community, so we welcome feedback and input from anyone who’s interested in having a voice here.
