Grandmas at the Farm

DT@Grandmas on the Farm-Collector#

If sitting on the shady patio, it won’t take long for Maggie the kelpie to find you. Don’t freak out when you feel a gentle brush of her nose on your thigh when she deposits a small rock onto the chair. She’s keen to play fetch, and goes from table to table trying her luck to see who will play. It’s a bit of entertainment and not just for our four-legged friend, and probably something you’d expect on a farm. However, this is not a ‘true’ farm, its way too slick. The place overlooks an extensive well-manicured olive grove, and the car park is geared up for coaches, with a kiddie’s playground to keep the young uns entertained. Like any good franchise, Grandmas does this well. The presentation of the scones, jam and cream are the same as that in Alexandria, although I find the buttery scones more crispy and biscuity – perhaps the chef went heavy on the butter? The rich raspberry jam and super thick (almost clotted cream) are served in identical small plastic containers and once again reflects the Grandmas brand. It’s a handy place to pull in to when travelling along the Federal Highway.
