New farmgate experience launches in Ballarat

Visit Ballarat

Filed underFood & Drink

Following the success of their Mystery Picnic in Ballarat, AmazingCo has launched a new self-guided food discovery experience just in time for summer.

Gather, taste and learn on this jam-packed and self-led seasonal Farmgate Experience, discovering a world of fresh and artisanal produce in the Ballarat region.

Throughout your farmgate adventure, you’ll be collecting everything you need to cook up a hearty roast dinner at home.

Beginning your day with morning tea, you’ll collect seasonal ingredients from the Ballarat region’s top artisan vendors while learning about organic and sustainable food systems and engaging with friendly local providers as you go.

You’ll get all the items you need to make a lovely roast dinner, including meat (pork, chicken or lamb) or a vegetarian option (cauliflower or pumpkin), seasonal vegetables, herbs or spices, a pre-made dessert, and a bottle of local wine to complement the experience.

Once you’ve returned home for the day, you’ll have full access to everything required to prepare your roast dinner, including recipe instructions, fun games, and conversation starters to enjoy throughout the night.

This is the second self-guided experience launched in Ballarat over the last year. The Melbourne company’s hero product is the Mystery Picnic – a food and adventure experience with a difference. Using your smartphone to solve clues and riddles, your journey will take you to local artisan producers where you’ll collect delicious picnic ingredients, ending at a stunning secret picnic spot where you’ll enjoy your food. Different variations are available for friends, families and couples.

To celebrate the launch of AmazingCo’s new Ballarat Farmgate Experience, we’re giving away two ultimate days out in the countryside.

Up for grabs is The Couples Farmgate Experience (a $190 package for two adults) plus The Family Farmgate Experience (a $230 package for two adults and two children).
