Farm walk information
$15/person or $35/family (covers 2 adults and 2 kids – extra child $5). This ticket covers two farms. You are free to visit both or either farm on the day. Tickets need to be purchased prior to the tour and they are available at the Information Marquee at the Farmers’ Markets in the morning or they can be purchased up to 9 am on the Sunday from the Mudgee Visitor Information Centre, 84 Market Street MUDGEE or online from our website.
Farm Walks run on the Sunday morning following the Saturday Farmers’ Markets, between March and November. This is mostly the third Sunday, but not always!
Tours start at 9.00am from the Mudgee Visitor Information Centre at 84 Market Street MUDGEE. Please make yourself known to the Tour Leader and have your Farm Walk ticket with you. You will then ‘follow the leader’ in your own vehicle to the participating farms.
Please wear closed walking shoes as you will be on a working farm. It’s also a good idea to bring your own water bottle, wear a sun hat & apply sunscreen before arriving.
Tour duration times can vary according to the distance travelled between farms, what there is to see and do at each farm and sometimes how long the farmer likes to chat! Allow 3 to 3.5 hours.
On the Sunday morning following the Saturday Farmers’ Markets join us on our guided Farm Walks, appreciate everything that a working farm has to offer.
From our great range of producers two farms open their doors each month, enabling visitors to explore the origins of local, seasonal produce. Depending on the season you may get to see olive oil production, free-range pork, locally grown vegetables, vineyards, a fig or cherry orchard or a working winery.
Farm Walk participants get to meet the farmer and share their passion about what they produce. According to the season you will be shown various stages of production. There are lots of opportunities to talk to the farmer, ask questions, and get your ‘hands dirty’.
Depending on the season you may get the chance to pick, collect or taste the produce straight from the source. There will also be the opportunity to purchase produce direct from the farm gate. Not only does this give you a unique chance to experience a working farm, it is a nice way to get in touch with the seasonality of growing produce.
We had the most magnificent weather for Farm Walks on Sunday. The kids loved getting down and dirty in the garden at Broombee, just as much as the adults did. Clem and Vanessa were wonderful at Australian Gourmet Hazelnuts. Another gentleman brought his family up for the day from the mountains and they loved it, they’ll be back in September or October.
