East Gippsland’s green and beautiful landscape has a diversity of options for people wishing to grow, produce and sell food, so it’s not surprising to see many large and small independent growers taking advantage of the rich soils to supply wonderful products. FRUIT AS IT SHOULD BE One producer featured on the East Gippsland Foodmap is The Fruitfarm Johnsonville. A memorable food experience is exactly what you’ll get here with white and yellow peaches and nec- tarines, perhaps cherries and apricots or maybe plums, all fresh from the trees. Remember eating a peach and having to lean over as that delicious juice drips down your chin? Or biting into a nectarine that really tastes like, well, a nectarine? Gone to heaven with the thought? At The Fruitfarm you can expect that something special. Tree ripened fruit has more flavour and is truly memorable. Or perhaps you may want your fruit crunchy but still sweet? Just ask Elaine and she will tempt you with variety. While at the orchard, browse her selection of lovely jams and chutneys and the selection of local wines for sale. COTTAGE STAY AND GOOD FOOD Tambo Upper’s Tamberrah Cottages and Windmill Pizza Restaurant is an ever-evolving business, owners, Jeanne and Robbie Fraser, constantly adding to what they can offer. From building their first visitors’ cottage more than12 years ago, Jeanne and Robbie now have five cottages available, and to top it all off, a stunning restaurant with a windmill and watermill. It has become a popular venue to dine for locals and visitors alike, with mouthwatering pizzas a feature on the menu that serves meals as well as homemade cakes and coffee. A bar facility, perfect for larger groups and parties, including weddings, has also been installed in recent years. Savour the tastes of the Twin Rivers area, like stone fruits full of old fashioned flavours at The Fruitfarm Johnsonville.
