Visitors to the Lockyer Valley can build their own personalised food trail of south east Queensland thanks to a new website. Developed by the Council of Mayors and modelled on the success of the Sunshine Coast Food Trail, the SEQ Food Trails Website will allow those with a passion for food experiences to follow an authentic, year-round food tourism trail.
The Food Trail Website gives Visitors the option to add seasonal product and part-time producers to their itineraries, along with key festivals, markets, cooking schools and restaurants that feature Lockyer Valley products.
Awassi Cheesery continues to develop the amazing breed of Awassi sheep to Australian conditions. A purpose-built cheesery, milking parlour and farm gate outlet where you can sample the freshest Lockyer Valley cheeses.
9Dorf Farms are a 4th generation family owned business farming in the fertile Lockyer Valley since 1918 and are passionate about sustainable farming, working with and improving the environment, producing ethically raised animals.

Ghost Gully Produce is a family owned and operated hydroponic lettuce and herb farm in the heart of the Lockyer Valley. They pride themselves in producing a superior product which is hand harvested, packed and delivered fresh from Brisbane to Toowoomba.
So where’s the best place to see a snapshot of what’s in season? A fruit and vege shop, of course! In the main street of Gatton you’ll find Boko’s Fruit Mart, which is where you’ll find the freshest juice.
