There is a feeling of that good ol’ fashioned Aussie spirit at the moment with the nation coming together to support local Australian farmers who are struggling in a time of drought.
Farmers in New South Wales and Queensland have been the hardest hit with reports stating we are seeing the worst drought in living memory. At the moment, 98 per cent of NSW and almost two-thirds of Queensland is either in drought or is drought affected, with farmers in parts of Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia also suffering.
It is devastating to see so many farmers hit hard by Mother Nature’s fury but it is also amazing to see the support from fellow Australian’s to dig deep and help out!
If we could make it rain, we would but unfortunately the weather is out of our control (apparently our rain dances only bring rain to Tassie ?). So, in support of Rural Aide we are joining the ‘Buy a Bale’ campaign by the way of the Parma for a Farmer initiative. For every Chicken Parmigiana sold in our Stockmans Restaurant during the month of September we will donate $1 towards buying a bale of hay to help feed the farmer's livestock.
A little bit can go a long way, so if you wish to support our Aussie farmers, dig in and treat yourself to a good ol’ chicken parmy!

We are delighted to have raised $370.00 to parma for a farmer! This money has gone toward buying multiple hay bales for drought affected farmers!
