For those looking to gain an insight into what is like on a farm, Marananga Stud is the place to be later this month.
Located at Evandale, the stud is opening its farm gates to the public on November 28 for its A Taste of Marananga event, which will provide a hands-on look at how a farm is run.
The event will include tours of the farm, food and scenic views, with the team from Marananga on hand to answer questions.
Farm operator Rod Summers has been breeding stock for more than 50 years and has showcased his prized cows and sheep all over the world.
"It all started with the first sheep I ever bought way back in 1964 and it's just grown from there," Mr Summers said.
"We showcase at Agfest and we get people coming up and asking us questions about the cows and our farm, so we thought it would be a great day to open it up to people who want to learn more about farm life.
"The kids especially will love seeing the baby cows we have and learning about how they grow."
Mr Summers started out with only nine heifers and now has about 60 cows on his property, which he said made it one of the biggest Belted Galloway studs in the country.
He said he hoped opening Marananga to the public for the day would teach people about the Belted Galloways cows and Suffolk and Hampshire Down sheep that live on the property.
For those wanting a paddock to plate experience, there will also be barbecue featuring produce that has come from the farm itself.
"We encourage people to bring a picnic rug and chairs, have a seat down by our dam where you can see the ducks and swans and have nice family day," Mr Summers said.
"It gives those who haven't lived on a farm a taste of what we do and how we go about it. I've been rural all my life, always been involved in farming and the country. It's great that I can teach people what I know about cows, sheep and life on the farm."
A Taste of Marananga will be held on November 28 at the Marananga Stock Stud in Evandale. Entry is free, but registration is essential. Visit Marananga Stock Stud on Facebook or call 6391 8511 to register by November 25.
