Make front page news at Agfest

ONE OF Agfest’s most loved traditions Tasmanian Country – “Your Face on the Front” – is returning to this year’s field days.

The gates at Quercus Park are open with Agfest running over four days from Wednesday August 24 to Saturday August 27.

The Tasmanian Country team is again proud to be the official Agfest newspaper. This year we are excited to announce the return of “Your Face on the Front” where you can have your own personalised memento of Agfest 2022.

Font Publishing managing partner Brad Stansfield said “Your Face on the Front” had a great history at Agfest and Tasmanian Country was thrilled to continue the tradition this year.

“We know it is something those visiting Agfest look forward to and so we are excited to see it returning,” Mr Stansfield said.

“It is a great opportunity to bring your friends and family and create your own record as Agfest celebrates 40 years in the paddock.”

Tasmanian Country’s team of reporters, advertising representatives and circulation staff will be on hand throughout the four field days to answer any questions, organise a subscription and hear about your life on the land.

You can also pick up a copy of Tasmanian Country, buy yourself a Tasmanian Country supporter cap or organise an digital subscription.

“As Tasmania’s only statewide newspaper Tasmanian Country brings you all your rural news and analysis direct to your farm or inbox every Friday,” Mr Stansfield said.

“With regular rural columns, stock sales reports, analysis of the issues affecting farmers and great story telling, Tasmanian Country is a must read for primary producers and those working in, or with the industry. “

We look forward to seeing you at site M04 (corner of Main St and CWA Grove) – just past the main entrance.”

There will be almost 500 exhibitors on site at this year’s Agfest.

There are no crowd restrictions but all ticket sales are online and only day tickets are available, no multi day passes.

Organisers have also encouraged people to wear a mask for their own safety.

Additional measures will also be in place to guard against biosecurity risks such as Foot and Mouth Disease and Lumpy Skin Disease which are currently in Indonesia.

Agfest is planned to return to its original May timeframe next year and will again be held over three not four days.
