The Scenic Rim is again inviting the city to the country to enjoy a day out while supporting local farmers at their upcoming Spring Farm Gate Trail this Saturday from 9-3pm.

A group of passionate Scenic Rim locals and primary producers will give visitors a taste of the Scenic Rim including the chance to see 80,000 sunflowers in bloom.

Featuring the biggest line up yet of 24 farms, visitors will get the chance to stock the empty esky while they're getting to know where their food comes from.

From fresh produce from the Scenic Rim Farm Shop, cuddles with lambs, selfies in the Sunflower fields, stocking up on artisan dairy products to beer tasting, visitors will leave with full stomachs and a love for the Scenic Rim region.

Kay Tommerup from Tommerup's Dairy Farm is keen for visitors to stop by and enjoy an authentic farm experience.
