See what our exhibitors have to say......
"Solar Pumping Solutions have been attending the Mudgee Small Farm Field Days for many years now and find it to be an integral part of marketing our business. We do not have a shop front so the Field Days is a great opportunity for us to see our customers and display some of our products each year. We find the event gives us great exposure and a regular and steady stream of work through each year making it a very worthwhile couple of days for our business."
Kim Harding - Solar Pumping Solutions.
"As a new exhibitor, Farmtech Machinery was extremely impressed with the Mudgee Small Farm Field Days, we had a great site location, large volumes of foot traffic through the site over the two days, loads of interest in our product range and we 'made sales' - we'll certainly be coming back to Mudgee"
Paul Payne - Farmtech Machinery.
"We are really pleased with the exposure and interest we got from the Mudgee Small Farm Field Days. Response and sales from customers was excellent and we were very busy over the two days. The event proved to be excellent value for us."
Mike Hohner - Power Tools Plus.
"Mudgee attracts farmers and hobbyists from a vast expanse of NSW, essentially from Oberon to the Upper Hunter. The demographics of the audience is wonderful, and we get a high level of new enquiry and repeat sales. The first morning always starts with a bang as orders are placed as a result of work we did last year - the Mudgee Small Farm Field Days is a must on our annual show calender."
Douglas St Qunitin - McCallum Made Chicken Tractors.
"It's always the best field days and very impressive that improvements are constantly being made."
