Experiences for all your senses!
At Peppermint Ridge Farm, we are passionate about producing quality food in harmony with our unique Australian environment. Since 1996 we have been offering a range of Taste Learn See experiences designed to excite and inspire you about Australia's unique native bushfoods. We invite you to pay a visit to the farm for one of our popular, regular events, or organise your own special day out. Take in the beautiful bushland setting and views from our terrace cafe whilst enjoying a delicious meal featuring the unique native food flavours. Unwind and escape with a stay at The Haven Country House offering spacious self contained accommodation.
Our new program of events for 2015 is now online. Check out our events page for more information. Our next events are on the weekend of February 21 & 22. Our first native creative cooking school class for 2015 is on the Saturday followed by one of our regular monthly tour 'n tapas lunches on the Sunday featuring the unique flavours of Australia's native plants. We look forward to welcoming you to the farm soon!
