Hosted once a month by Mudgee Fine Foods, Mudgee Farm Walks guides participants on a walk through selected Mudgee properties so they can see how animals are raised, produce is grown and farms are run. The locations change monthly and you will visit two farms per walk, for a truly immersive experience.
From their 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, ask them questions and hear how passionate they are about what they produce. According to the season, you will be shown various stages of their production.
