By Claire Logan – who is always dreaming of her next meal and reckons a good martini solves most problems

AmazingCo is all about creating unforgettable experiences, from romantic mystery picnics and city-wide amazing races to immersive winery tours and gourmet food discoveries. Every surprise-filled adventure is designed to bring you closer to your date, friends or fam, and is always a whole lotta fun. And the latest just so happens to combine two of our great loves—food and travel.

Yep, the good-time crew at AmazingCo have come up with a new limited-time adventure, dubbed the Farmgate Experience, that’s part scavenger hunt, part foodie tour and altogether a fun-filled day out. This self-guided tour will see you farm-hopping through a beautiful regional destination, solving clues and riddles to figure out your next secret destination, where you’ll pick up all the gourmet ingredients you need ​​to create the ultimate roast dinner in the comfort of your own home (or accommodation). The experience is all-inclusive, which means everything you pick up is already paid for, so no need to worry about keeping track and splitting bills later.

Along the way, you’ll learn all about the region you’re exploring and get a chance to meet the incredible local farmers, growers and producers behind those gourmet goods you're gathering. If you’re up for a detour or two, you can also take up the extra recommendations AmazingCo sends your way throughout the day.

Once you land back home, you can get started on your farm-to-table feast. They’ll provide you with all the recipes and instructions, and together with those fresh ingredients you’ve collected, you’ll have everything you need to put up a roast that might just rival mum’s. To keep the fun going, they’ve even provided a few games and conversation starters for you to work through on the night. 

So where will this adventure take you? There’s plenty of food-rich regions to choose from like Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula and Ballarat in Victoria; or Southern Highlands and Hawkesbury for those in New South Wales—with some awesome options in Queensland and Western Australia too.

AmazingCo’s new Farmgate Experience is here for a good time, not a long time, so you’ll have to move quick if you want in on the action this summer. But don’t stress, if you’re not quite ready to book dates, they also do gift vouchers and we reckon they would make the perfect Christmas pressie for any foodies in your life.
