Spend a day at The Falls Farm wandering through the extensive market gardens, herb gardens, and orchards and then enjoy a ‘tastings’ of the freshest organic produce. Follow this with a Farmer’s Bento Box picnic lunch. This is Seasonal Tastings: Winter.
In mid winter, The Falls Farm is at its most diverse, productive and beautiful. The farm is bursting with amazing produce…many types of kales, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, beetroot, radish, peas, lettuce, celtuce, onions, shallots, garlic, potatoes, citrus…and much more. Many of the varieties grown are bespoke to the restaurant industry. Most people are unfamiliar with how such produce is grown and, more importantly, how it is grown using organic/regenerative farming processes. The farm’s adage “we only sell what we grow” means that, Seasonal Tastings: Winter will only be offering the freshest seasonal produce for you to sample.
The Falls Farm is situated in an exceptionally beautiful landscape within meters of the Mapleton Falls National Park. Extensive areas on the farm have been landscaped with picturesque dams and watercourses, ‘secret’ gardens, forests and picnic areas.
The Falls Farm wants to share our farming story with you. To achieve this, we will host hourly farm walking tours lead by the head gardeners. This will introduce to the novice, the home gardener or those who just want to know how their favourite winter vegetables are grown organically.
Situated in a centralised area of the farm, the ‘tastings’ area will be found. Farm staff will be on hand to describe each produce item. In addition, the visitor can purchase at the time of booking, a Farmer’s Bento Picnic Box [$25 each] full of the freshest farm produce and preserves, locally baked bread and locally made cheese. Lunch in hand, they can find their own picnic spot to enjoy the farm’s bounty. Dietary options will be available.
Kompiramaru Wines, by a Queensland based wine maker, will offer samples of their naturally fermented wines.
Additionally, organic cold-pressed juices will be on offer, plus tea and coffee.

Seasonal Tastings: Winter is for families; interested home gardeners; lovers of the freshest seasonal produce available or those who just want a beautiful day in the country.
