Tocal Field Days is a non profit incorporated association with
three staff members and an enthusiastic band of volunteers. We
work throughout the year to ensure that the event runs smoothly
for both exhibitors and visitors. We do not want Tocal Field

We are looking
forward to celebrating a milestone event in 2013 – the 30th
Tocal Field Days!
One of our features for 2013 is ‘Dairy’ and this will include
taste testing competition and even a pedal powered milk shake
The Tocal Tucker food stall operated by Morpeth Public School
will again feature our own Tocal grown beef but this year we
will add lamb to the menu and, in line with our dairy feature,
milkshakes will be on sale using our own Tocal milk.
Dairy products will be the key ingredient in the Bake or Burn
competition which will be back in an amended format this year by
including a bake off at the end of each day.
Our second feature is ‘Innovation in Agriculture’ and this
marque will be located across from the site office and will
bring a number of new inventions, innovations and discoveries
together in one area. DNA extraction from strawberries, biofuels
and transgenic technologies are just some of the topics you can
learn about. Another inclusion is an inventor who really has
‘reinvented the wheel’! He will discuss his invention and it its
many uses and applications.
There will be fencing demonstrations and new to 2013 a fence
splitting display. The ever popular piglet races are back as
well as some great new country entertainers.
We have experienced a sensational number of early exhibitor
bookings this years so visitors can be assured of a vast array
of farm machinery and equipment on sale.
Don’t forget the free shuttle that is available from Maitland
each day of the event leaving on the hour from Maitland Railway
Station and 1/4 past the hour from Lorn. The free shuttle
returns to Maitland from Tocal Field Days on the half hour.

every ute enthusiast from the best feral ute to the best classic
Tocal Field Days Manager Wendy Franklin said that the variety of
utes is what makes the event entertaining.
”We have entries in the best street ute which are polished and
gleaming and then we have entries for rural utes which are
decorated for life on the farm. Visitors love to see the utes as
much as their owners love to show them off!”
