Towri Sheep Cheeses hosts market day at Allenview

VISITORS flocked to Allenview by the hundreds on Sunday to take part in the Towri Sheep Cheeses market day.

Sunny skies, woolly mates, cooking classes and a variety of stalls and food options made for a perfect day out.

Entertainment was provided by Redlands musician Brad Button, while milking demonstrations were a popular option for children and adults.

A wide range of market stalls featured unique homewares, clothing, jewellery, art, farm fresh produce and local wines.

Food trucks had everything from fresh coffee to decadent donuts and barbecue, while Towri had its ever-popular cheese platters and ice cream on offer.

Caz Osborne from Scenic Rim Cooking Classes had no trouble finding students keen to learn how to prepare peppered beef from Running Creek Beef with charred sugarloaf cabbage from Oppy's Fruit and Veg in Boonah and seared mushrooms from Heidi Mundy at Boonah's Mushroom House.

The cooking class also featured lemon myrtle oil sourced locally and a lemon and cumin Eweghurt from Towri Sheep Cheeses.

Towri farmer Dallas Davidson said the next event on the Sheep Cheeses calendar would be the Towri Woolly Cup to be held on Melbourne Cup Day.

"Tickets for the sheep race that stops the Scenic Rim are on sale now," she said.
