Festival Returns for 2019!
Tamar Valley Farmgate Festival returns for a second year with the aim to connect people with locally produced food.
Tamar Valley Farmgate Festival returns for a third year with the aim to connect people with locally produced food. ￼ The annual Farmgate Festival will be held on November 23-24 at various locations along the West Tamar region.
Patrons will visit a number of diverse farms and be taken on guided tours by enthusiastic farm operators. The aim of the festival is to educate people on how real food is produced and highlight the Tamar Valley region. We have 15 farms onboard as part of this year’s festival, we are very excited to welcome back previous years and a couple of new farms to our list.
Farms offer a wide range of experiences from tours encompassing production and processing techniques, product tastings, animal encounters and farmgate sales. Tours vary in length and occurrence with patrons able to plan their chosen tours and take in the experiences that interest them.
Introducing this year, the festival tickets are now a two day festival pass, allowing plenty of time over the whole weekend to visit more farms.
New inductions to the festival for 2019 include Holm Oak vineyard with a behind the scenes winery tour and barrel tastings, and Wilmores Bluff and their Corma Sheep.
Returning to the Farmgate Festival this year include Tamar Valley Truffles, Tascargot – Snails, Brady’s Lookout Cider, Tamar Valley Hazelnuts, Tamar Valley Pastured Eggs, Langdale Farm, Grey Sands Vineyard, Lentara Grove, Honey Tasmania – The Beehive and Village Olive Grove, Lavender House – The perfumery, Petuna Seafoods and Waterton Hall with a special one day opening on the Sunday.
A highlight of the festival will be the two exclusive gourmet dinners featuring food produced in the Tamar Valley region. These will be take place at Timbre Kitchen and Strahlynn with tickets available here.
