Tweed Cane on Display

The Tweed Cane Industry was once again on display in the cane pavilion at the annual Tweed Agricultural Show. Stewards Graham Martin, Greg O’Connor, Allan Quirk and John Harbison worked hard leading up to teh show, collecting and installing the cane stalk exhibits.

John Harbison, Tweed Cane Grower and Director of Sunshine Sugar commented; “Whilst entries of cane stalks overall are down on previous years, the quality is exceptional, particularly given the flood event earlier this year and the fact that we are at the tail end of the season with over three-quarters of our crop harvested.”

Judge, Malcolm Warren, the Agricultural Officer for Sunshine Sugar judged the 26 categories which included 15 individual variety sections, as well as weight and sugar content classes.

The pavilion this year also boasted a display of some of the sugar and molasses products that are made from the sugar cane grown locally and made here in the Northern Rivers.
