Northern Tasmania was settled to develop agriculture, come on a food and wine experience of this lush region.


Clean air. Clean water. Fertile fields. Distinct seasons. Northern Tasmania boasts perfect growing conditions for farmers.

Visit 41 Degrees South Salmon and Ginseng Farm to sample some hot smoked salmon, as well as the therapeutic Ginseng herb. Freezing fruit and vegetables at -20 degrees evaporates all moisture, but retains vitamins, and we sample some at Forager Foods. Then onto the Melita Honey Farm where we can sample more than 50 different varieties/flavours of honey along with their own nougat.

And of course we need chocolate, so a visit to the House of Anvers which specialises in Belgium chocolate, fudges and truffles. At the Cherry Shed we get to sample cherry sauce, jam, relish, chutney, liqueurs and port. After lunch we visit Ghost Rock Vineyard for a wine tastings. The Spreyton Cider Company has a wonderful tasting room to showcase their varieties of apple cider. Cheese cheese cheese at Ashgrove Cheese Factory.

And finish off with a raspberry dessert at Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm.
YUMMMM
