The Farm Trail
An unforgettable farm experience in Orange, NSW
Visit a selection of bountiful farms to meet the growers and pick a harvest of seasonal fruit.
Meet the growers
Delight in the views
Pick your own produce
Taste the wines
Your private farm experience includes:
● A scenic drive through rolling countryside
● Meeting growers and tour their farms (many exclusive to Country Food Trails)
● Pick seasonal produce and buy direct from the farm – seasonal
● A picnic pack of the region’s best produce enjoyed in a scenic spot; maybe a park, on the farm or in the vineyard (we’ll select the best spot on the day and set a table)
● Afternoon tea and wine tasting of the region’s famous cool-climate wines
Depending on the season, The Farm Trail could include hazelnut farms, stone fruit orchards, a saffron farm or even Australia’s highest olive grove. There is also the option to forage for mushrooms. We’ll always include a visit to one of our favourite vineyards too.

Seasonal produce guide
Orange is famous for apples … it’s too cold to grow oranges!
Our seasonal visits will allow you to shop directly from the producer and pick your own fresh fruit and vegetables.
A group of girlfriends and I recently spent a fabulous day with the bubbly and engaging Nicole from Country Food Trails. What a fantastic and fun experience and such a great way to gain a more intimate insight into Orange! Starting with the Heritage Trail, which was fascinating and informative, we then enjoyed the Bush Tucker component presented by the very passionate and entertaining Gerald and his assistant Erin. The morning concluded with a delicious cheese and charcuterie platter. We spent the afternoon with the delightful Lee Bell from Dindima Wines and a special visit to Tawarri Olives at the foot of Mt Canobolas where we were treated with a tour of the olive grove and garden, olive oil tasting and a delicious homemade cake. Thank you, Nicole, for helping us put together such a wonderful itinerary for the day. A real highlight of our stay.
