This year, the Honey Festival joins us and there will be talks, demonstrations, competitions and special activities for children. A great day and we are so pleased to welcome them. The Slow Food Movement will again be with us and have an exciting programme planned as well as their Long Table Lunch. If you have friends in town they might want to join the bus trip up to Gidge.

Come and join Slow Food Swan Valley and Eastern Regions at the SFFD for a great day full of information, amazing food and fun for everyone. Travel comfortably on our tour coach, stop for Wine & Sparkling tasting at Garbin Estate Wine and view a Bee pollen processing operation at Saxonbee Enterprises before heading up to Gidgegannup Showgrounds. Enjoy a delicious 4-course honey infused long table lunch, created by our Slow Food Chefs.
