Daylesford Macedon Ranges Produce Festival

Daylesford Macedon Produce Harvest Festival is a bi-annual celebration of the harvest, dating back to the time when the success of the crops dictated the lives of the people.

Every autumn our festival brings locals and visitors together to enjoy a showcase of unique product from the region’s best growers, provedores, chefs, restaurateurs and vignerons.

Festival goers can try experiences as varied as hands-on permaculture to sausage making; visit farm gates throughout the region and take advantage of the many special harvest week offers.  Many become a ‘local’ for a night, shop with the locals at the farmers markets, or taste their way around the region with regional tasting plates and their matched local tipples. We also hold forums on sustainable communities; classes on everything from composting, preserving to bread making; to special winemaker and chef’s dinners and classes.

Lost Trades Fair 2017
Mar
11
to Mar 12

Lost Trades Fair 2017

Lost Trades Australia celebrates the art of skilled manual work and ancient and traditional trades and crafts, their special tools, traditions, languages and secrets which are now threatened by mass produced products in our modern society. Unfortunately many crafts and trades have been lost to history. Traditional crafts and trades that once were the backbone to building towns, cities and industries have gone and been left in the wake of new technology.

In the past people typically worked one trade or craft all of their lives and passed the secrets of their trade or craft to their children or apprentice.  So much information has been lost about the crafts and trades of yesterday, rare trades, unusual occupations and skills, while some have been captured in books written by tradesmen and craftsmen before they passed.

Glen and Lisa Rundell set up Lost Trades Australia with the aim of bringing together people that still have these skills and reignite the significance that these trades and crafts have in today’s environment, before they are lost to history. Get in touch to see which workshops give you a discount on Flop House accommodation.
