Maximum: 8 people

Angela Clifford is co-owner of The Food Farm in North Canterbury, just 50 minutes north of Christchurch. She's spent the last twelve years showing people the food and wine of this beautiful region through events, tastings and tours, helped by friend Jess Mavromatis.
The Food Farm is Angela's permaculture small farm, where they grow all of their own food; from fruit & vegetables to milking cows and pekin ducks. It is also the HQ for their wine brand, Tongue in Groove Wines. Spend a day with her or Jess as they show you their life there; from growing their own food, to finding wild delicacies, spending time in the vineyards and sampling wine.
You'll begin the day on The Food Farm, then see what you can find in the wild spaces. Depending on the time of year this may include mushrooming, learning more about wild greens and weeds, fruit picking or sea shore wandering. If it's truffle season (December through to September usually) and you're interested in seeing how a dog finds these underground, highly-prized fungi we have the only truffiere in New Zealand in our community which produces four different types of truffles. Lunch will be cooked for you by one of the most amazing chefs in the region in a special space on a vineyard. Finally you'll spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the vineyards and cellars providing a unique opportunity to get beyond the cellar door, and further than most visitors ever get.
