Leehmuis Hospitality, operators of both The George Harcourt Inn & Casey Jones Pub, are extremely excited to announce that their ‘$40 Farmer Parma’ deal has raised over $10,000 for the ‘Buy a Bale’ drought relief effort to help farmers across NSW.

Over the past two Thursdays Casey Jones Pub and The George Harcourt Inn were offering punters a special $40 Farmer Parma with Leehmuis Hospitality guaranteeing the entire $40 would go to charity. $1 from every regular parma sold on the days was also donated.

Owner Josh Leehmius said he was overwhelmed by the community support:

“I’m simply floored by how many generous people came to show their support for our farmers and have a great feed – we even had a vegetarian customer pay $40 for our vegetarian pizza just so she could participate!”

Casey Jones’ rugby team the Hall Bushrangers R.F.C participated in the fundraising efforts by volunteering their time to run a meat raffle which raised over $500 and several of the team members also purchased the infamous $40 Farmer Parma.

The ‘Buy a Bale’ organisation is committed to helping farmers across NSW suffering from extreme drought. They have so far helped distribute over $600,000 of much needed hay to farms all across the region.
