Deep Winter Agrarian Gathering

The Deep Winter Agrarian Gathering is an annual farmer led forum for agriculturalists producing non-commodity food and fibre. With a focus on circular or regenerative farming practices and community development this annual meeting of the minds is an opportunity to think big about small scale food production and connect with peers in the field.

In 2019 Deep Winter delves into the themes of scale and viability. We all want the live the regenerative farming dream but how the hell do you actually make a go of a small scale farming business? South Australian regenerative graziers, market gardeners, egg producers, grain growers and mushroom farmers will share their learnings about how they got to where they are AND where they still need to get to to make the dream a reality.

This year is the first year the event will be held in South Australia - the conference will be in Willunga at the Willunga Show Hall and there will be a tour which will visit Fleurieu and Adelaide Hills Farms. The dates are June 21st - 23rd.
