3 steps to hosting the best National AgDay BBQ

Love your food and want your community to know it? Throwing a classic Aussie BBQ this National Agriculture Day is a top notch way to show your appreciation for all things agriculture!

Agriculture is a nationwide community that involves every Australian – from farmers, to retailers, all the way to the every consumer.

Did you know: that one Australian farmer feeds and clothes 600 people a year and that 400 of those people live overseas?

This year’s AgDay theme is #GrowforGood, which celebrates everything great about agriculture and Australian agricultural communities.

Here are AustralianFarmers’ top tips if you’re planning to host a BBQ this AgDay!

Step 1: Register for Ag Day

Register your event on the AgDay website and receive an awesome package of balloons, shirts, stickers and more to deck out your event location.

Step 2: stock up on some Aussie produce

Head on down to your local supermarket and pick up some of the classic Aussie BBQ must have foods such as:

  • Proteins: sausages, sizzle steaks, even chicken and seafood are great on a BBQ.
  • You can even throw in a vego option or two.
  • Bread (of course)
  • Sauce (tomato and BBQ – maybe some aioli if you’re feeling fancy)
  • Salads or a potato or pasta salad from the supermarket deli
  • Onions (to add some class to the sausage sanga)
  • Drinks: water and Aussie-grown fruit juice
  • Dessert: fruit salad and pavlova
  • You can never have too much ice
  • Remember that sunscreen and Slip! Slop! Slap!

*Note: this is all open for interpretation.

Deck the place out in green, pump those Aussie tunes and take a bunch of photos with you and your friends and family celebrating great Aussie produce! Remember to post your celebration to social media and tag AustralianFarmers, #GrowforGood and #AgDayAU!
