Mudgee Fine Foods Farm Walks
Join us on our guided farm walks, where you can get your hands dirty on a working farm.
From our great range of producers, two farms are chosen each month. Depending on the season, you may get to see olive oil production, free-range pork, locally grown vegetables,vineyards,a fig orchard, or a working winery.
Farm walk participants get to meet the farmer and hear how passionate they are about what they produce. According to the season, you will be shown various stages of their production. There will be lots of opportunities to talk to the farmer, ask questions, and get your ‘hands dirty’.
Depending on the season, you may even get the chance to pick or collect produce, and taste really fresh food. There may also be the opportunity to purchase produce direct from the farm gate. Not only does this give you a chance to experience a working farm, it is a nice way to get in touch with the seasonality of growing produce.
Mudgee Fine Foods Farm Walk Dates
August 20, September 17, October 22, November 19
Tours start from the carpark at the Mudgee Visitor Information Centre, 84 Market Street, at 9.00am. Please make yourself known to the Tour Leader, and have your Farm Walk ticket with you. You will then ‘follow the leader’ to the participating farms. Participants need to get themselves to and from each farm in their own transport. Please wear covered shoes, no pets allowed, and be prepared to learn, enjoy yourself, and get some dirt on you! Tour duration times can vary according to distance travelled between farms, what there is to see and do at each farm, (and sometimes how long the farmer likes to chat!) but allow 3 to 3.5 hours.
Tickets available from Mudgee Visitors Information Centre, open 7 days at 84 Market Street, Mudgee or you can book online.
