The show is designed to illustrate the importance of Agriculture to our society. People old and young have the opportunity to learn about really happens to get food on the table. About $7 million annually is invested in agriculture programs, education, youth, and rural NSW in support of our rural communities and keeping farming practices safe and efficient.
That makes us feel good about the $100 we dropped on the day.
Entrance tickets were $78 including public transportation so it could have easily been a lot more for us.
I ‘splurged’ on a “Pluto Pup” (also known as a Dagwood Dog or Corn Dog) but there was a plethora of choices: Texas barbeque, hamburgers, chips-on-a-stick, gozleme, as well as nuts and fruits sold directly by the farmers, just to name a few. We saw food vendors on just about every corner. But, I was hungry and I just couldn’t resist the nostalgia of a good old deep-fried, breaded hotdog on a stick. Delicious!
