Have you ever wanted to source your food produce directly from the paddock or orchard and cut out the ‘middle man’ or supermarket giants? The Otway Ranges is peppered with producers’ farm gate stalls, offering their produce and other products directly off the land.

The Otway Harvest Trail features some of the best local produce in the Otway Ranges and even Victoria. At farm gates and farm shops across the Otway Ranges you will find food produce ranging from beef and lamb, through to fruit, vegetables, cheese, preservatives and other local produce such as wool and wool products, leather products and souvenirs.

Food produce doesn’t get any fresher than directly from the source and you can see for yourself exactly where your food is coming from. Instead of your usual trip to the supermarket, greengrocer or butcher, you can make a weekend out of exploring the farm gates and producers in the Otway hinterland. You can not only pick up premium fresh food produce but also enjoy a raft of things to do in the Otway Ranges.

There are plenty of great places to stay in the Otway Ranges when you choose to spend a few days fossicking along the Otway Harvest Trail. You are guaranteed to spend your days enjoying the unique gems the trail has to offer, such as country markets, provedores and the breathtaking natural landscape and rainforest.

Don’t forget the absolute must-visit wineries and breweries which, along with plentiful restaurants and cafes, are among the fantastic places to eat in the Otway Ranges. You will find most places to eat will feature the local produce and food produce that brought you to the region in the first place.
