Flavour-filled farm trails

Overflowing larders on the farm, freshly-picked produce from a paddock, jams and chutneys made with love, olives and cheese, honey and garlic, carrots for days, farm walks, wine tastings, lamb pats, alpaca cuddles and goat giggles.

These are just some of the highlights of the Scenic Rim Farm Gate Trails and, this year, there are two – one in Autumn on Sunday 28 April and another on 28 July 9am to 3pm.

They are the much-loved and highly-anticipated days when the farmers, growers, producers, winemakers, brewers, distillers and flavour-makers across the famous region open their gates to celebrate where food comes from.

From cuddles with lambs at Towri Sheep Cheeses to fresh produce straight from the paddocks of local farms, picnic selfies with alpacas, incredible Christmas Creek garlic and stocking up on artisan dairy products.

To beer and ice cream tasting at Scenic Rim Brewery, flower walks at Elderflower Farm, wandering the vines at the region’s vineyards, visitors leave with full stomachs and a love for the Scenic Rim region, its produce and its people.

* Both Scenic Rim Farm Gate Trails will run from 9am to 3pm – follow @destinationscenicrim and on Facebook for more.
