We urge all farmers and landowners on the Mornington Peninsula not to burn off just yet and check with your vineyard neighbour to see where they're at with harvest.

Even though fire restrictions were lifted on Monday 28th March, our vignerons are only 60% of the way through harvest with smoke causing a devastating impact to grapes at this time of year.

Please could you wait a few more weeks until the end of harvest, which is likely to be the third week in April, before you set fire to that pile of fallen trees and branches.

Any burn-off must be registered at firepermits.vic.gov.au or call 1800 668 511 or email [email protected]
