The rich soil is ideal for cultivating cool climate wines, nuts, olives and a variety of fruits and vegetables. The area is also suited to grazing with alpacas and deer popular along with cattle, sheep and goats.
The region is known for its diversity - the seasons, the landscape, the people, and of course the produce.
Myrtleford is home to many innovative and talented growers, producers, restaurateurs, chefs and foodies who are passionate about local produce. Enjoy genuine country hospitality and learn what it is like to live and eat as a local in Myrtleford.
For a true regional experience, look for handmade signs on the roadside advertising fresh produce - there are plenty to discover during your travels and it is a great way to see what produce is currently in season.
Some growers, such as Valley Nut Groves in Gapsted, offer tour of the production facilities (by appointment only Ph 0428 537 700) and many wineries offer vineyard tours for those who want to know a little more. Australian Pumpkin Seed Company for tour and tastings.
You can always head to the monthly market, to pick up local fare. The Farmers Market is on the forth Saturday of the month.
Pedal to Produce
Pedal to Produce is the perfect foodies holiday: cycling from a quaint village café, down a country road to taste award winning wines and onto a farm gate to pick up some fresh regional produce and meet the farmer who grew it.
Pedal to Produce includes the renowned food and wine regions Rutherglen, Beechworth, Glenrowan, Milawa, King Valley, Mansfield, Myrlteford, Bright and the Kiewa Valley where you can visit cellar doors, local breweries or drop into a café for a coffee. If you’re hungry you can refuel at one of the many bakeries, restaurants and food producers along the way.
Through a combination of the Murray to Murray to Mountains Rail Trail, quiet country roads, farm gate producers, cellar doors and spectacular scenery this make for a compelling experience.
