George the Farmer is on his way!

George the Farmer is heading to Swan Hill and is encouraging children and their parents to join him for a morning of books, song and farming fun!

With his trusty dog Jessie by his side, George is known for tackling the day-to-day activities of Australian farming life with enthusiasm, a can-do attitude and most importantly, a big smile.

This award-winning fictional farmer teaches children where food and fibre comes from through books and songs.

From his farm at Panoola in South Australia, George spoke to the Swan Hill Town Hall about his upcoming visit.

“Kids can join me for a beaut book reading and a boogy at the ripper Swan Hill Town Hall,” George said.

“My performance includes a lively book reading of ‘George the Farmer – Ruby and the Dairy Dilemma’, which is all about robotic dairies and milk production.

“It’s then time to get the kids grooving where they can follow me dancing my signature farming moves to my hit songs including ‘Mate, Where’s My Next Sheep?’, ‘Dairy Days’, ‘We Love Beef’ and ‘The Harvest Hop’.

“Make sure you and the kiddies wear your dancing shoes, and there will be giveaways! See you in November.”
