Selling muesli for Burrumbuttock Hay Runners

BROOKFARM is hoping to turn muesli into hay this weekend in support of drought stricken farmers.

The business will hold a Bakehouse sale on Saturdayfrom 10am-3pm in front of their Byron Bay industrial estate premises.

All proceeds from the sale of their bargain-priced muesli and Porrij will be donated to the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners, who transport hay to drought-stricken farmers around Australia.

They have already made 11 runs since 2014, delivering desperately needed feed to starving cattle and sheep.

The founder of the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners, Brendan Farrell has said "while there is still a drought and we can still get hay, the runs will continue."

Brookfarm is passionate about supporting fellow farmers and call on the public to drop in, buy some cereal, and help out struggling farmers.
