CELEBRATE all that’s great about fresh, healthy, locally grown food at Farmadale next weekend.

The annual event promotes the ‘paddock to plate’ idea through a celebration of locally grown produce and sustainable, healthy eating.

Among the day’s activities are a pie baking contest, cooking demonstrations, foot tasting, waterwise garden workshops, art and craft, a petting zoo and even a barnyard dance.

Armadale Shopping City marketing manager Jessie Jattke said this year’s Farmadale was set to be a big one, especially the popular pie baking contest.

“This year’s event will be bigger, and a real feast for the senses,” she said.

“So time to get cracking on those sweet and savoury family recipes for your chance to be crowned Armadale’s best baker and also be in the running to win lots of great prizes.

“All our entries will be donated to local charities, who I know really enjoyed the home-baked creations last year as well.”

Farmadale is at the Armadale Shopping City on April 21 from 10am to 4pm.
