Meet Our Local Growers
Due the rich soil and good climate this entire region has excellent growing potential for most crops. We also have local farmers and businesses who make their own food and goods from these crops.
Eggs and Chicken, beef and pork, cheese, milk and a variety of dairy products are just a few of the items produced locally.
This region is famous for many things, not just gold and the Country Music Muster, we are also a diverse community with many talented farmers, musicians, potters, weavers, painters and we want to share it all with our visitors. Come and explore the Mary Valley and all hers wonders.
