In an effort to communicate that Farming Matters, contestants in this year's Nutramix National Farm Queen competition visited 17 Mile Post, a family project run by father and daughter, Michael and Robyn Fox.
17 Mile Post boasts a three in one approach to farming, with Food Basket Farms, CafÈ Eits and the Mount Edge Guest House. The contestants, who all have an interest in farming - stemming from livestock to produce - were educated on how they can develop profitable experiences into their own farm life.
"We deliver produce to customer's doorsteps weekly, however, it was important to us to create a dining experience around our farm so that our customers could come to us," stated Robyn as she urged the ladies to find creative and innovate approaches to their farming.
After a tour of the Food Basket Farms, where Fox's main staple mixed greens are grown, the ladies sat down for a true Farm to Table experience at CafÈ Eits courtesy of Nutramix.
