Now in its 4th year, this is a one of a kind farm day experience in the Gympie region and a chance to support local farmers.
There are over 3,000 Rosella trees planted this season and in May the mature bushes will be loaded with the deep red rosella fruits.
They also planted other crops ready for picking such as gourmet tomatoes, cape gooseberry, eggplant, chillies, snake beans, okra, cassava, red bora beans, tomatillos, choi sum, gailann, coriander, borlotti beans, butter beans and more.
The guest chefs will create delicious dishes showcasing the well-loved rosella and other homegrown produce. This year’s line up includes:
JASON FORD – Food Ambassador of South Burnett Region
JAMES BARNDEN – local head chef from
VALERIE FERDINANDS – MKR 2017 Runner Up
Plus their very own cook CC Diaz-Petersen will be up on stage sharing her own twist to home cooking.
Celebrating all things rosella, there will be farm tours, cooking demos and some fun games involving Rosellas.
There will be a huge display of CC’S Kitchen fine food products including over 25 Rosella related products and fresh produce. CC will prepare an array of homemade food available to purchase on the day.
There’s even free face painting for the kids too.
