Calling all farmers to open their gates this FarmDay

Australia's agricultural sector has experienced a difficult start to the year but an initiative to educate urban families on the business of farming and food production may well provide the confidence and backing the industry needs to get back on its feet.

On Australia's annual FarmDay, held on the weekend of 28 and 29 May 2011, farmers across the country are encouraged to open their gates and welcome a city family to spend a day on their farm.
