This year's Farmgate Festival is turning out to be its best year yet according to preliminary figures says coordinator Fiona Stocker.
Twelve farmers, producers and vineyard owners opened their gates for the weekend at the Tamar Valley to show visitors what they do for the fourth year.

Ms Stocker said it was thought it may be a smaller, quieter festival this year, but preliminary figures showed it was its best year yet.
"It doesn't attract huge numbers, but that's part of its charm. The farmers and business owners get to meet visitors in person and show them what they do.
"It's a unique event, and there has always been a great feel about it," she said.
She said most festival attendees were from the state, with a small number from interstate.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, visitors booked their visits online and wore traceable wristbands. Ms Stocker said it ensured social distancing and contract tracing could be achieved.
"This tells us exactly where people went and when, and it will also give us a greater understanding of how people move around the festival, which will help our planning for next year," she said.
