Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 May 2021

Join us on a trail around some of Taranaki's top food producers. Taste their produce, enjoy their tales and get a behind-the-scenes look at how they operate.  Celebrate the variety of food and beverage products produced in Taranaki and enjoy the delicious flavours with a taste at each location.

How It Works:

Tickets Include:

First, choose a trail and then purchase a seat on the minibus, or get a group together and purchase seats for the whole bus (10 people).  You will be driven around each venue, and enjoy a personal experience with the owner/operator in your small group.  Please note that there is limited availability and tickets are allocated on a first in first served basis.
