A Free Event - Biodynamics Field Day - Sunday Nov 13th 2016

For all of those who would like to know a bit more about Bio-dynamics, here's your chance to attend a free event.
In association with Biodynamic Agriculture Australia, we at Jembella Farm, together with Smallfry Wines, are hosting a field day on Sunday November 13th.
The day will begin at 9.30am at the vineyard of Smallfry Wines, 148 Vine Vale Road, via Tanunda.
(Signs will be out on the day)
We will be hosted by Wayne and Suzi, who come to bio-dynamics with a wealth of experience in viticulture. Both have App.Science degrees specializing in viticulture and a family history in the wine business. They have 25ha under vine, all of which is certified Grade A organic/bio-dynamic. Their Vine Vale vineyard has extensive plantings of very old vines as well as fruit trees and vegetable production.

In the morning Wayne Ahrens and Suzi Hilder will show how bio-dynamics is enhancing the quality and productivity of their historic vineyard.
Complimentary morning tea will be provided by BAA and there will be an opportunity to taste and purchase Smallfry wines.

The afternoon session will be held here at Jembella Farm, 199 Gawler Park Road, Angaston.
You are invited to bring a packed lunch to eat whilst relaxing in our garden or on the shady verandah.
Tea and coffee will be available for a gold coin donation.
Jembella Farm jams, honey and produce will be available for tasting and sales.
We will be wandering around our 16 acre self-sufficient farm, focusing on methods of  fruit and vegetable growing, and animal management using organics and biodynamics.
You will see our liquid weed tea fermenting processes, Flow Form, Bio-char, methane digester, worm farm, soil activators, spreading methods, and learn about organic alternatives for the home garden to broad acre cropping and farming.

We are joined by our most knowledgeable and experienced representatives from Bio-dynamic Agriculture Australia  John Hodgkinson from NSW and Shane Joyce from Queensland.

Topics to be discussed throughout the day will include:
* maximizing soil fertility
* composting - scale and methods
* weed and pest management
* bio-dynamic stirring and spraying set up and methods
* bio-dynamic preparation making and use

Biodynamics Field Day


  1. Unbelievable!!! What a fantastic day you have planned, such a shame Tassie is just that bit too far away for a day trip !!!!! Anybody who goes to your open day will be one lucky duck. Jude x

    1. Aaww thanks Jude! I think the day is going to go too fast, such a lot to cram in, but we're really looking forward to it.

  2. Tasmanian....why you so far away!! :-)

  3. I feel so annoyed as we have been to Australia twice and both times to the Barossa valley and I didn't know of your farm.. what a shame. Still I love reading about you and your farm, I have relatives, cousins of my mother in Geelong, my friend lives in S Australia and it was with them we visited THE Barossa Valley, we might have driven near your farm!

    1. Thanks for your lovely words Chris and I'm so pleased that you enjoy reading about what we get up to here. Well, you never know, perhaps you will come to Aust a third time, and we'll get to share a cuppa in our humble home. :)

  4. What a great day, wish I lived closer (even in the same state), I would so be there. Thanks Guida.

    1. And how wonderful it would be to welcome you here Guida. :)
