Rupertswood Farm Crop Maze
26 February 2016
The 2016 Rupertswood Farm Crop Maze theme has been announced! This year an enormous image of a cloud and rain falling over a wheat field has been etched into a crop by farmer, Rowan Clark, of Hagley, Tasmania. The design, initially developed to highlight the plight of farmers battling drought-like conditions, was recently amended after heavy rain fell across northern Tasmania. ?It has been a tough season for farmers?one of ?droughts and flooding rains?, so I thought this would be a good way to raise awareness of the difficult water challenges that face our food producers?, Mr Clark said.
This year, Rupertswood Farm is also delighted to support Right as Rain, a new health equity project from the Tasmanian Royal Flying Doctor Service. RFDS CEO John Kirwan said ?The program aims to improve health equity in rural and remote Tasmania by enhancing local services that focus on health promotion, prevention and early detection. RFDS is seeking donations, sponsorships and partners to enable us to bring this much needed project to fruition?.
