SEASONAL PRODUCE

The Southern Forests produces over 50 different types of fruits and vegetables, truffles and boutique produce, dairy, sheep, pork and cattle farms, as well as award-winning wineries and exceptional culinary experiences.  The Southern Forests region is heavily invested in agriculture, with $230 million of agricultural production coming from the region.

The region’s climate and environmental influences allows Southern Forests producers to grow crops during the warmer summer months, advantageously contra-seasonal to many other food producing regions.

The premium produce of the region is expertly grown predominantly for the fresh produce market, however the produce is also exceptionally well suited to creating high quality gourmet products such as olive oil, honey, condiments, preserves, jams, sparkling juices, dried fruit and nuts, as well as an extensive range of truffle infused products.
