MUSK Vale farmer Brendon Eisner is egg-cited about the Trentham producers dinner.
The Daylesford Organics egg, fruit and vegetable farmer will provide the ingredients for meals served at the newly-formatted event in October.
This year the Trentham Growers, Cookers and Eaters dinner will swap its three-course, sit-down menu for canapes and share plates.
Event organiser Justin Walsh said the focus was still about the food.
“There will be multiple courses of share plates and canapes, with all produce sourced locally,” he said.
Daylesford Organics, Angelica Organic Farm, Duck Puddle Farm, Jonai Farms, Sidonia Hills Beef, Milking Yard Farm, Holy Goat Cheese, Blackwood Orchards and Trewhella Farms will provide the produce.
Mr Walsh said it was the perfect opportunity for farmers to form connections outside of their day jobs.
“There are not a lot of opportunities for people to come together outside of that buying and selling relationship,” he said.
Mr Eisner agreed there needed to be more cohesion among local producers.
“That is what Justin is trying to achieve. He wants to make producers more accessible in the area,” he said.
