Fes­ti­val a taste of area

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion - Leah Kidd Re­porter leah.kidd@news-mail.com.au

SOME­TIMES I think we almost take for granted the plea­sure of liv­ing in the salad bowl that is the Childers re­gion.

It is only when we travel fur­ther afield that we find pro­duce is not avail­able from the front yard of a lo­cal grower.

In other towns, there is no small slot to throw in our gold coins, rather an EFT­POS ma­chine wait­ing to take far more than pocket change from our plas­tic.

It was great to see grow­ers and pro­duc­ers show­cased and cel­e­brated at the week­end Bundy Flavours Fes­ti­val, al­low­ing up to ap­pre­ci­ate what we have avail­able at our fin­ger­tips here in Childers and the wider re­gion.

Mammino’s, Hill of Prom­ise Win­ery and Vint­ner's Se­cret Vine­yard rep­re­sented Childers and looked to be very popular.

I re­ally look for­ward to see­ing even more next year.
