Whip-cracking will be a feature of Seymour Alternative Farming Expo, with the state championships on Saturday and come-and-try sessions on Sunday.

People planning on a trip to this weekend’s Seymour Alternative Farming Expo are being encouraged to plan ahead and read the expo event guide, distributed in last week’s Review.

The event guide includes a handy map of all exhibitors around the ground, as well as site holders in the general exhibition building and livestock and art and craft pavilions.

The farming expo is on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 9am to 4pm each day, at Kings Park Reserve in Tallarook Street, Seymour.

Each day’s learning sessions are detailed in the What’s On pages to help people make sure they get to all the demonstrations, talks, come-and-try activities and competitions across three action-packed days.

Foodies will be keen to sink their teeth into demonstrations by chefs Riccardo Momesso, on Friday, and Adrian Hensley, Saturday and Sunday, or pick up handy tips from butcher Vic Bonacci.

People can also head to the food court for tasty treats ranging from hot chips and burgers to gelati and a range of wine, beer and soft drinks.

“With more and more people seeking a tree change, attending our farm lectures and learning hub sessions is a great way to find out more about livestock handling, owning poultry, soil health, wine making and more,” event manager Jamie Gilbert said.

Sessions are presented by experts in their fields and there will be plenty of opportunities to follow up with most of the speakers at their sites throughout the day.

“The main and back ovals will have plenty of action for all – from whip-cracking, working dogs and drone demos to vintage car displays and wood chopping,” Mr Gilbert said.

“There are also displays and activities running all day, including camel rides, livestock and wood turning exhibitions, kids’ activities and rides, and the always popular Farmer Darryl’s animal farmyard.”
