Farm Tour and Lunch – Tommerup Dairy
Spectacular views of open fields, picturesque mountain scenery in the Lost World Valley, a breathtaking avenue of old Blue Gums and the scene is set for an amazing long lunch and farm tour in this special collaboration between Wild Canary Bistro and Tommerups Dairy Farm all just over an hour’s drive from Brisbane.
This unique opportunity will include a guided farm tour with Kay and Dave Tommerup, 5th generation farmers around their historic family property. They are passionate about creating a sustainable future for their farm, establishing a full-circle farming system incorporating the dairy, ethically raised grass-fed veal and milk-fed heritage breed pork, which allows them to remain small-scale producers, true to their values.
After the farm tour, sit down and relax at our long table set under the cool shade of the old Blue Gums. Break bread with farmers and producers over a long lazy four course lunch and learn about their philosophy and practices.
Executive Chef Glen Barratt and the team from Wild Canary will showcase Scenic Rim producers. A highlight of this special lunch includes Tommerup’s ethically raised grass-fed veal and heritage breed free range pork, both raised on creamy Jersey milk, fresh from the dairy. Does not get any more local than that! This is an exceptional immersive farm and food experience.
LOCATION: This event is located at Tommerup’s Dairy Farm in the picturesque Kerry Valley, part of the Scenic Rim region Queensland, within 75 minutes drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
