Visiting students experience local food production

Year 12 food technology and hospitality students from Brigidine College in Randwick spent three days this week touring the Cowra region learning about different types and scales of food production. Students were able to meet the farmers, ask questions and even taste their produce during a┬ápacked itinerary visiting a holistically managed sheep grazing property, an organic farm that specialises in wine, olives and figs, a high production vegetable farm, a dairy, olive processors and the Central Tablelands┬áLivestock Exchange. Our local producers shared their knowledge and gave personal insights into how they’re managing their land and resources to improve productivity and farm health into the future.
