Events & Markets
Millen Farm hosts a weekly Wednesday afternoon Real Farmers’ Market from 2pm – 5pm, on site at 2204 Mt Samson Road, Samford (just in front of the glasshouses). Produce grown at Millen Farm is sold at the market and we guess that it’s approximately 47 metres from planting bed to market stall. You can’t get closer ‘food miles’ than that!
The market is starting small and currently includes a select group of farmers who agree with Millen Farm’s ethos of local, seasonal and small-scale food growing. Produce can sell out so arrive early, if possible. Follow us on Facebook for updates about the market.
We are only a short stroll north of Samford Village but if driving to the market, please enter the Samford Commons precinct and park safely towards the rear of the area. BYO bags or baskets as we aim to reduce plastic bags and packaging. There are no EFTPOS facilities on site as yet.
Millen Farm is also very proud to host regular workshops to help anyone learn how to grow, preserve or enjoy eating local and seasonal food. Some workshops are held on site at the farm and are a chance for you to ‘get your hands dirty’ and learn from a farmer. Other workshops are held in private venues in the Samford region and feature expert presenters. Workshop topics are as diverse as care of animals, pruning fruit trees and jam making.
