The 2016 Crop maze is now closed and will reopen in 2017
Super rain grows giant wheat!
The 2016 Rupertswood Farm Crop Maze design, that of an a cloud and rain falling over a wheat field, was 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 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.
In 2016, Rupertswood Farm was 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”.
