Farmers Market for Father's Day

It was an extra special Father’s Day at Hale this year with the inaugural Farmers’ Market being held on Sunday morning. The event, held in the Quadrangle, was organised by the Hale Boarding community with everything sold at the market donated by boarding families.

Over 1000 people attended and were treated to a range of fresh produce including milk, beef, pork and lamb products; grains, fresh fruit and vegies; honey, eggs and preserves; bacon and egg burgers, Devonshire tea and cake stalls; a range of garden products including sheep manure, firewood, pea straw, fresh flowers and plants; and live entertainment including sheep shearing demonstrations, face painting for the kids and even a magic show! There was also a petting zoo with free range lambs roaming the Quad, raffle with awesome donated prizes and a chance to cuddle up with puppies from SAFE (Saving Animals From Euthanasia).

The market was not only a great community event but also a fundraiser, with over $24,000 raised. Half of this is being donated to the Leukaemia Foundation, while the other half is going to boarding activities. 

Congratulations to everyone involved in organising this fantastic event, which is no doubt going to be an annual fixture on the Hale calendar!
