Little people in Macarthur and beyond need to be educated about real food and the real people behind the harvesting and making.
I'm so passionate about sharing healthy food with children so I've created some fun school holiday pop up mini foodie tours to inspire and and educate parents and their little people.
The tour is suitable for children 4+ and all children must be accompanied by a parent at all times on the food tour.
Stops on this tour will include
Camden Community Gardens....garden tour, find out how worm farms work and pick some fresh herbs.
Pine End Organics- Ricotta Making and tour of kitchen garden. Purchase some organic cheese and honey and what ever else is on offer. Recipes provided for ricotta.
Top 40 Orchard....seasonal fruit, nuts and some veges, homemade preserves and syrups with shed tastings and purchases.
Honey Farm....learn about bees and honey making and purchase a pot of local honey
Vege Farm and produce store...walk down into a field and see seasonal veges then visit the family owned produce store which is packed with seasonal produce and local gourmet delights, cheeses, yogurt, breads and snacks.

Commonground Bakery...Lunch and indoor games and prizes for the kids
Each mini foodie will recieve a goodie bag with cool local foodie info, a magazine, a what's in season chart, kids Winter Season recipes, colour ins and puzzles, healthy snacks, a water bottle, baked treats....
