THIRD SUNDAY OF EACH MONTH
If you’ve ever wondered exactly what ‘free range’ means, wanted to get in touch with the seasons, or show your children exactly where their food comes from, Mudgee Fine Foods have come up with a great idea to get people back to grass roots level.
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.
