Suburbanites flock to Farmday

Hundreds of Australian families will leave the city on the last weekend of this month to spend time on a farm and learn more about where their food and fibre come from. National Farm Day is an annual event organised by the National Farmers Foundation which has seen enthusiastic response from city dwellers keen to find out more about life on the land. The relatively tiny number of farmers in Australia and currently tough times on the land mean that there are currently more visitors than available hosts. Farmers willing to participate are encouraged to register at the Farmday website.
