Farming and produce is at the heart of the Hawkesbury and the region has supplied food to Aboriginal and European people for centuries. Orchards laden with fruit can be bought fresh at the farm door or from farmer's markets. Cider, honey, citrus, local preserves and vegetables full of flavour can be found at roadside stalls and taken home to enjoy with family and friends.
The area has an active alpaca farming community, as well as goats and chickens. And don't forget to take the family to the popular farm sheds for a different experience buying fruit and vegetables. The locals have been doing it for years!
