Horticulturalists and producers in the Yarra Valley take note - the Wandin Silvan field days is scheduled to make a return this year over two days from October 17 to 18.

The event caters to smaller farming operations such as horticulture and viticulture and will feature a wide range of exhibitors presenting a massive range of products such as farm machinery, caravans, tools, irrigation equipment, fertilisers, motor vehicles etc.

Despite its farming focus, the field days will also cater to the lifestyle crowd with a handful of exhibitors selling clothing, jewellery, quality produce like nuts and snacks; and household items.

A popular attraction at the field days is its historical machinery display presented by the Yarra Valley Machinery Preservation Society. Also this year, ute aficionados can look forward to the field day’s annual Ute Muster which was not held in 2013 but will be making a comeback this year.

Photographers, aspiring or professional alike, are encouraged to take part in the annual photography competition sponsored by the Wandin-Seville Community Bank.  This year’s theme will be "Farm Equipment & Machinery".
