Ringarooma residents are eagerly awaiting the Legendairy judgment after putting on a show when a Dairy Australia film crew visited late last month.

The small town of 200 was selected as Tasmania’s Legendairy capital and is now in the running to be the national winner.

DairyTas executive office Mark Smith was in Ringarooma for the judging and said the size of the town had no bearing on its enthusiasm.

“The small community has shown a lot of spirit to get behind the application and the school, and show it is a pivotal part of the town,” Mr Smith said.

“[Ringarooma’s] focus is on securing their future and resourcing local assets with the dairy connection,” he said.

Dairy farming has always been the backbone of Ringarooma.

As the state capital, the town won $2500 to renovate the school’s recreational area and hopes to win a further $7500 to restore the school’s 100-year-old dairy.
