Vanilla nice

By Jennifer Kent

AFTER an unrelenting flow on enquiries from the public, Vanilla Vine Sunshine Coast have further embraced their dedication to the region’s growing agritourism industry, opening their gates to offer small groups a tour of their working farm.

Owner Ginger MacPherson said they’re excited to be hosting the tours to public for the first time and give people the chance to see what it is they do, as well as enjoy some of their many home-grown products. “We had a lot of enquiries from people calling up and wanting to visit the farm and it just wasn’t viable to take one or two people at a time,” said Ginger.

“It’s probably taken us about a year to make up our minds to move forward with the tours but we’re excited to welcome our first guests in the coming weeks.”

Tours on their farm will run once a month and offer visitors the chance to see the coffee plantation and learn about the process from growing through to consuming; a tour of the vanillery, learning about the many growing stages; and a tour of the hydroponics set up including the chance to take home your own produce in a biodegradable pot.

The tour will cumulate with an enjoyable morning tea overlooking the glorious view of the hinterland while enjoying a tasting of Vanilla Vine’s signature cold brew coffee sweetened with their very own vanilla syrup.

Guests will also have the chance to view and purchase Vanilla Vine products and enjoy wandering through the lovely gardens and orchard.
