Overview

Local produce

Travel across Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges and meet the local farmers, winemakers and provedores, artisan bakers, cheesemakers and charcutiers who give this region its 'foodie' reputation.

Dine out at local restaurants, cafes, pubs and wineries to sample dishes created from ingredients fresh from the fields. Heading home? Stock up for the journey at farm gates, markets and village bakeries.

Passionate producers

Discover a passion for healthy, fresh food all across the region, home to orchardists, beekeepers, winemakers and farmers. From restaurateurs and organic grocers to celebrity chefs, the region's love affair with fresh produce continues unabated.

Create your own dishes back at home or in self-contained accommodation, or let those top chefs serve you up scrumptious local meals.

Change with the seasons

Visit throughout the year to enjoy seasonal delights. In spring it's lamb; in summer, morello cherries. Autumn is forest mushroom season, while root vegetables appear in winter, as do truffles in June and July.

Spend your weekends in the Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges region's regular farmers' markets in Daylesford, Lancefield, Woodend, Riddells Creek, Kyneton, Tallarook, Trentham and Eynesbury. Check local visitor guides for dates.

Farm gates, provedores and wineries

Cruise down country roads and fill your boot at rustic farm gates. Stop at tucked-away cellar doors and sip excellent sparkling and cool-climate wines.

Load up on organic produce at Kangaroo Hills or Captains Creek organic farms. Grab cured meats from Istra Smallgoods, and get game and rare breed meats from Daylesford's Spa Venison or direct from the farms. You can even get fresh Murray cod, trout and yabbies, or fish for your own at Tuki Trout Farm. During truffle season (June and July), join a truffle hunt through the 1000 tree truffiere at Black Cat Truffles.

Pick up olive oil, truffles, cheeses and artisan breads at farmers' markets or provedores including Woodend's Maloa House, Cliffy's Emporium in Daylesford, Kyneton's Monsieur Pierre and Trentham's Colliban Food Store.
