Since 1991, Seymour Alternative Farming Expo has grown into the most successful alternative farming expo in the Southern Hemisphere and one of the best in the world.
Each year, over three days in February, more than 450 exhibitors present the world’s best agricultural technology for a general audience of 45,000 visitors including farming professionals and members of the general public.
Seymour Alternative Farming Expo is a massive outdoor supermarket for leading edge farm machinery, products and services from Australia and around the world and showcases Australia’s unique engineered and technical solutions to the challenges of farming on one of the world’s driest continents.
The technology at Seymour Alternative Farming Expo each year focuses on advances in alternative livestock, cropping enterprises, small to medium farm machinery, implements and building systems (home and farm). The Expo has a strong lifestyle focus including food growing and preparation, animals such as cattle, sheep, goats and backyard chooks. Regular event features include the Snake Show, Chainsaw Carving, Working Sheep Dogs, Country Cook Off and the Butchers Shop, Gourmet Food Marquee, The Owner Builder Lectures, Agricultural Society Lectures and the NMIT Ag Zone Lectures.
The Alternative Farming Expo is located on a superbly laid out site at Kings park in Tallarook St, Seymour.
The site is situated only 1hr from Melbourne in Victoria, and is easy accessible from the Hume highway.
