Foodies may have had a difficult time coping with isolation during the pandemic, but now the abundant produce of the Tweed Region is coming to you in a virtual farm tour.
In a first for the Tweed area, Mount Warning Tours operator Michael Simmons and Taste Tweed Festival organiser Jayne Henry have partnered to produce Taste Tweed Farm Tour in a Box, bringing the Tweed to your door.
From the Tweed Shire to you, Taste Tweed Farm Tour in a Box takes us on a unique journey through the stunning Tweed Shire, an abundant food bowl of produce grown in the area’s rich volcanic soil.
In a feast for the senses, a virtual farm tour, locally produced produce and a complimentary bundle of extras are bundled up into one box.
“This is a unique way to show just what we have to offer on the Tweed,” Mr Simmons says. “While people may not be able to come here at present, we hope this package will entice those who purchase it to come once restrictions are finished.”
What’s so special about the box? It contains film, experience and produce. The USB contains interviews with thirteen different growers and producers of the local region on a virtual farm tour, a Tweed River cruise voucher lets you experience a tour of the area, and the many unique products included in the box bring you a first-hand taste of regional flavours.
Overflowing with local goodness, the Taste Tweed Farm Tour in a Box includes tastings from Husk Farm Distillery (North Tumbulgum), Tropical Fruit World (Duranbah), Madura Tea Estates (Clothiers Creek), Bucks Farm (Chillingham) The Chilli Chick (Cudgen), Dona Cholitas (Burringbar), Flutterbies Cottage Cafe (Tyalgum) and Tyalgum Honey Thieves (Tyalgum), Tweed Shire and farm tour documentary, recipe cards and shopping list and a Mount Warning Tours Rainforest Cruise voucher (valued at $50) with an open validity date.
Valued at $175, the purchase price includes free delivery Australia wide, Taste Tweed merchandise, a livestream cooking workshop, rainforest cruise voucher and more. All purchasers of the Taste Tweed Farm Tour in box receive access to the members only section of the Mount Warning Tours website where you will find interactive photo trails and exclusive content only available to members.
