Producers & Growers Events

Council is inviting artisan agriculture producers and growers from the Hepburn Shire and broader region to attend two upcoming events.

New and Aspiring farmers forum and farm walk

Clare Fountain from Sorted, will conduct a free morning workshop that will provide producers with the opportunity to understand and implement the key elements of financial management for business.

The elements will include;

  • where you see your business in 5-10 years’ time;
  • financial literacy 101; and
  • keeping on track but avoiding pitfalls.
