Across February, Gippsland Agriculture Group will host the Sowing the Gap project, featuring a series of site visits centred on preparing beef and sheep farmers to better address feed gaps. The trial areas at the Gippsland Agriculture Group Research Farm at Bairnsdale Aerodrome and 10 farms across East Gippsland and Wellington shires investigate many soil types and climate conditions.

"Sowing the Gap" is a multi-partner East Gippsland region-wide project centred on learning from the past and preparing for the future

Supporting farmers across the region

Also, East Gippsland Shire Council is making it easy for locals and visitors to support farmers across the region with its Love Where it's grown, caught, made farm gate trails. Food lovers will soon be able to take a personalised taste-led tour of East Gippsland to directly purchase items from local farmers, fishers, brewers and winemakers, and connect with the people who provide our food.
