Farm gates offering taste-led tours of our shire 


We're making it easy for locals and visitors to support farmers across the region and buy fresh food direct from producers on our new Love Where it’s Grown, Caught, Made farm gate trails. 


Starting this month, food lovers can take the taste-led tour of our shire. The Council-led program will assist farmers and small businesses to increase sales and connect with visitors and locals, whetting their appetite for more local produce.  


Buying direct from local farmers, fishers, brewers and winemakers puts money back into the community, saves on food miles and lets food lovers connect with the people and places behind the food we eat.  


To discover the many farm gates, road-side stalls, farmers’ markets, wineries, breweries and even trawlers in East Gippsland, head to a local visitor information centre or  


Pack an Esky or a picnic basket and gather local delights as you go. You’ll be spoiled for choice and will definitely want to bring the flavours of our region back home with you. 


On the trail, look for the Love Where it’s Grown, Caught, Made logo on signs outside participating farms and producers. 


Anyone who offers food or fibre products that are grown, caught and made in East Gippsland and has a roadside, harbourside or market stall or sells online is invited to register for the Farm Gate Producers Program at a Council information centre or


Love Where it’s Grown, Caught, Made is part of Council’s Love Where You Live marketing campaign, supported by East Gippsland Marketing Inc.
