Production & Availability
Everywhere you look on King Island fantastic food is being produced. Even when you’re strolling along the beach at sunset the crayfish, abalone and other assorted seafood is busy growing beneath the waves.
More visible (unless you fancy going for a dive) are the cows lazing in the paddocks or lumbering towards the milking yards. The milk they produce is collected by the King Island Dairy and within a matter of hours is being transformed into one of the beautiful, creamy cheeses made at our local factory. You can taste a whole range of these cheeses, from soft, white brie to rich blue veined varieties such as Endeavour in the Fromagerie right next door to the factory.
On your drive back to Currie you’ll pass Camp Creek Gardens. They produce 100% organic vegetables for King Island and you’ll often see Paul down there hunched over a seedling or sampling a strawberry. Much of their produce is used at The Long Table event in late summer which showcases the best of King Island’s varied produce.
