Experiences for all your senses!
At Peppermint Ridge Farm, we are passionate about farming 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. Our eight hectare property has been transformed into a Cornucopia of edible delights featuring Australian native bushfoods and other produce. Julie and Anthony 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, our art deco themed accommodation.
We would like to wish all our customers a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and to thank you all for your support during 2014. We hope to see you at the farm again or the first time in 2015. Our new program of events will be online by Monday December 8. We are taking bookings now for our special Australia Day Lunch and tours on January 26 2015.
