The local family behind Dad’s Oats has taken out the top gong for innovation at The Weekly Times Coles 2016 Farmer of the Year Awards in Melbourne.
Taking home the title of Farm Magazine Innovative Farmer of the Year, the Cain Family from Natte Yallock are set to continue to reap the rewards of their paddock to plate product.
Dad’s Oats co-founder Peter Cain said the win was a real honour.
“We have put in a lot of hard work, and although it is early days for us, the award is another point of validation that we are doing something right and heading in a positive direction,” he said.
