Farm Club Cafe and Farm Shop

DT@Farm Club Teahouse and Nursery-Werai#2

Farm Club Australia prides itself on authentic country hospitality and farm fresh produce. Maybe sharing a table and possibly my meal with the homestead’s resident Irish wolfhound comes under country hospitality. The Irish wolfhound is just one of the quirks of this relaxed eatery, and if you don’t want to share your meal, then a table inside is probably a better option than on the deck or the lawn. Raising a bunch of fancy farm animals for eating; think Angus beef, Toulouse geese, Wessex saddleback pigs – you get the picture, is a definite drawcard for foodies. If you’re up for a spot of shopping, one corner of the cafe is dedicated to a farm shop selling quality products, including the Highlands Tea that’s on the menu. There’s even an array of gardening tools to get you started if inspiration takes hold, plus specialty soaps and some rather attractive leather goods. There’s a choice of either a serving of one or two scones, which is a good idea, especially if you’ve already indulged in lunch. My DT looks better than it tastes. My scone errs on the dry side and is more bread like than scone. The jam is good enough but nothing more than your stock standard cafe variety, and considering we’re on a farm I am expecting something homemade. The spread is topped off with lightly whipped fresh cream. If you want to extend your stay, check in to the accommodation, which is available in the Cowboy Bunkhouse, Tarella Farmhouse, The Old Dairy Cottage, or in the Ashgrove House. Open Wednesday to Sunday.
