Farm walk information
$15/person or $35/family (2 adults and 2 kids – extra child $5). This ticket covers the 2 farms on the day. You are free to visit either or both farms on the day. Tour tickets need to be purchased prior to the tours. They are available at the Information marquee at the Farmers’ Markets on Saturday morning; they can be purchased up to 5pm on Saturday 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. (This is mostly the third Sunday, but not always!)
Tours start from 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 closed walking shoes as you will be on a working farm, also a good idea to wear a sun hat & apply sunscreen before arriving.
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.
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 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. Taste food straight from its source. 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.
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 and 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.
