The next Open Farm Day will be on Sunday 7 April 2019. Visitors will have the opportunity to visit working farms and meet local farmers. 2019 promises to be even bigger than ever with participating farms from Nillumbik, Whittlesea and the Kinglake Ranges opening their gates to showcase farming on the fringe.

A diverse mix of farms are found in the region including fruit and veggie farms, livestock and animal farms, orchards and vineyards. Visitors can choose the farms they want to visit to make their own Open Farm Day trail and experience:

  • farm tours
  • demonstrations
  • farm animals
  • product tastings
  • and more…

Open Farm Day Trail Map and Passport

The Trail Map and passport is your guide to discovering the farms and local producers who are opening their gates for Open Farm Day. Visitors will be able to present their Open Farm Day Passport at each farm to collect a sticker. Collecting three or more stickers and completing the visitor survey allows entry to the prize draw, featuring some amazing prizes!!

The Trail Map and passport will be released in February 2019 so make sure you like our Facebook page to be notified when it becomes available.
