The Otway Food & Fibre Showcase returns

Guess who’s back, back again?

The Otway Food & Fibre Showcase is returning and we are stoked.

From humble soil and grass to quality food and fibre, the Otway region is gearing up again to put on a showcase of everything locally grown and sown.

You can look to enjoy a selection of some of the best Otway grown produce, including olives, cheeses, native bush foods, fruits and vegetables, honey, meat, small goods, wine and other brewed delights.

Growers and humble event organisers are excited to share their passion for turning soil and grass into quality food and fibre, bringing together passionate producers, expert guest speakers and the public all together in one place.

What we love about this event is its ability to shine a spotlight on the skilled, passionate and diverse growers who surround us in this regional area. At the festival, people coming along to the event can meet and discover the stories behind the many characters that produce the abundance of food and fibre right here on our doorstep.

This year, not only will people be able taste and purchase local produce, but they will also be able to talk to and learn from local growers and makers. There will be leaders at the forefront of landscape literacy, soil biology, reinvigorating local food systems, Agro-forestry, forging pathways for young farmers, fostering farming start-ups, holistic land management and cooks sharing their stories and experiences.

They can develop their growing and making talents by taking part in demonstrations and workshops around the theme of small holding skills like building soil and compost, bee keeping, poultry management, regenerative farming, the lifecycle of wool, native bush foods, shearing and creative kids food and fibre activities.

Head on down to The Otway Food and Fibre Showcase at the Colac Showgrounds from 9am-4pm on April 28th. Entry is a gold coin donation.
