In association with Biodynamic Agriculture Australia, we at Jembella Farm, together with Smallfry Wines, are hosting a field day on Sunday November 13th.
The day will begin at 9.30am at the vineyard of Smallfry Wines, 148 Vine Vale Road, via Tanunda.
(Signs will be out on the day)
We will be hosted by Wayne and Suzi, who come to bio-dynamics with a wealth of experience in viticulture. Both have App.Science degrees specializing in viticulture and a family history in the wine business. They have 25ha under vine, all of which is certified Grade A organic/bio-dynamic. Their Vine Vale vineyard has extensive plantings of very old vines as well as fruit trees and vegetable production.
Complimentary morning tea will be provided by BAA and there will be an opportunity to taste and purchase Smallfry wines.
The afternoon session will be held here at Jembella Farm, 199 Gawler Park Road, Angaston.
You are invited to bring a packed lunch to eat whilst relaxing in our garden or on the shady verandah.
Tea and coffee will be available for a gold coin donation.
Jembella Farm jams, honey and produce will be available for tasting and sales.
We will be wandering around our 16 acre self-sufficient farm, focusing on methods of fruit and vegetable growing, and animal management using organics and biodynamics.
You will see our liquid weed tea fermenting processes, Flow Form, Bio-char, methane digester, worm farm, soil activators, spreading methods, and learn about organic alternatives for the home garden to broad acre cropping and farming.
