About the listing
Take a taste of farming life on the Great Ocean Road Paddock2Plate tour.
Based on a working, family-owned dairy farm at Glenfyne in south-west Victoria, just inland from the Great Ocean Road, Great Ocean Road Paddock to Plate tour is a chance to get a glimpse into the life of a modern dairy farming family, from the kitchen to the paddock to the dairy and back.
Cows, calves, yearlings, heifers and bulls, both dairy and beef, populate the paddocks. You will see them in the paddocks, and depending on the time of year, calves in the calf sheds. The seasonal activities of the farm will be happening while you are there, and the tour will give you insight into the animals, the people, the machinery and the land; and the daily and annual cycles of work that go into a successful dairy farm business.
Butter and scone making, a light lunch featuring local artisan products, a farm walk with an experienced dairy farmer, afternoon tea and an observation of an introduction to milking are features of the tour. Lunch option number two is at Timboon Distillery, from 11:30am. Farm tour from 1:00pm, including rest of itinerary. Cost included in pricing. Bookings essential.
Other local produce such as artworks, honey and alpaca goods may also be available, depending on supply, for purchase on the day.
