That’s Spudman climbing all over the mountain of potatoes. He and I will be driving down to Crookwell this Wednesday for a weekend of fun.
Crookwell, New South Wales is the place to be as thousands of people will come to celebrate at the 2015 Potato Festival.
The community really enjoys this day and it gives them a chance to recognize and celebrate the abundance provided by agriculture in an atmosphere where the local folks and the visitors come together like mashed potatoes and gravy.
So be in town on Saturday March 7 to enjoy the 2015 Crookwell Potato Festival which commences at 9.30am.
Enjoy the potato farm experience at Garry Kadwell’s farm where demonstrations of early horse-drawn ploughing techniques and an “eco tour” of dry and wetland areas will take place. You can also see the modern-day John Deere equipment used by the potato seed farmers.
A special “Spud Bus” will transport you from one venue to the next and to and from Garry’s farm.
It all starts on Friday night at The Last Night of the Proms, a hugely entertaining evening and goes all the way through to Sunday morning with the eco tours, railway museum visits, Susan Reynolds’ alpaca farm and lavender farm experiences.
So turnip on Saturday March 7 to enjoy the 2015 Crookwell Potato Festival.
