Farm tours, avocado ice cream and a podcast! – Tweed Coast Guide

Farm tours, avocado ice cream and a podcast!

What do farm tours, avocado ice cream and a podcast series all have in common… our friends at Tropical Fruit World are serving them all up on a silver platter for us.

One of our fave Tweed attractions have announced they will be reopening their doors on Saturday 4th July. Tropical Fruit World will be running their intimate farm tours to support local and domestic tourism to the region. The 200-acre working farm has been operating for nearly four decades and like many local businesses, has reimagined their business to suit the times, which we absolutely love.

General Manager Aymon Gow said “we quickly sought to reinvent our business with the main focus being on the wellbeing of our loyal staff and how we can sustain and distribute the abundance of produce we generate from our farm”

Within weeks the epic team at TFW was delivering affordable farm fresh fruit, vegetable and condiment boxes to a community in lockdown. The pop up produce and retail store remained open but the farm tours, which make up a large portion of the business were sadly closed down.

So we are thrilled to share the news of their reopening. Get the family together and book in to experience hands on, intimate farm experiences such as a fruit foraging tour and a plant based tie-dye workshop. Take home gardening tips from the purveyors of avocados and exotic fruits complete with a pop up nursery to create your own fruit garden.

There’s a heap to enjoy, from an array of colourful dragon fruit vines, avocados and citrus orchards to a cactus garden and bee hives perched atop a vintage truck. There is also an indigenous art meeting place and a bush tucker talk and taste with an experienced guide.

We also hear they are slinging an avocado and macadamia variety of homemade fresh ice cream at the farm cafe, at the very least that sounds like a good excuse for a drive-by.

The TFW team have also just launched a podcast series (is there anything these guys can’t do?!) ‘The Fruit Diaries’ full of gardening tips, tastes and talks- available where all good podcasts are heard.
