Josh Donohoe, of Creative Tours and Events, has been working with Maleny’s Brouhaha Brewery to create the Farm to Fork Tour that tells the story of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland’s community, collaboration, and most of all, its fresh produce.
“The tour is designed to take you behind the scenes of private farms and meet local producers, hear their stories and sample the amazing local produce of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.” Mr Donohoe explains.
The Farm To Fork Tour offers guests a journey through the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, providing a hands-on experience at Sunshine Coast Coffee Roastery, The Falls Farm and Maleny Wagyu, before finishing at Brouhaha Brewery for a four-course degustation of the local produce paired with four of Brouhaha’s craft beers.
Guests are joined by Head Chef, James and Head Brewer, Matt, who share local stories behind the food and beer.
In the lead up to the announcement of the Sunshine Coast destination food festival, The Curated Plate, Mr Donohoe has taken two buses full of Industry Professionals, Tourism Specialists, Food and Drink Bloggers and Visit Sunshine Coast representatives and offered them a sneak peak some of the producers who will be involved with the four day food festival.
Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford welcomed the launch of the Farm to Fork Tour on the Sunshine Coast, citing food tourism as an increasingly lucrative market for the region.
“Visitors looking to explore a destination in depth are after authentic experiences, and what better way to get a sense of a community than through its cuisine,” he said.
“The Farm to Fork experience with Creative Tours and Events plays an important role in shaping how our region’s producers and restaurants work together with a shared focus on sustainability.”
The Farm to Fork Tours are available Wednesday to Friday and are limited to an intimate group for four to ten people. Each tour runs for approximately 6.5 hours from 9:30am to 4pm, with pick up available from Caloundra, Maroochydore, Mooloolaba, Noosa and additional locations on request. Tour prices range from $200 to $260 per person, depending on the numbers.
