Home Grown Trail
The Yorke Peninsula Home Grown Trail is your ticket for a behind-the-scenes view as locals welcome you to their farms and businesses.
Discover their produce and products and share their working lives. They'll show you what they do and how they do it, getting things grown, harvested, and taken to the world.
From award winning studs and innovative livestock enterprises to handmade paper, a marine study centre, and the regions first cellar door.
There are lots of experiences to be had on the Home Grown Trail from seeing new born foals and feeding baby alpacas to watching sheepdogs in action... or you can even be a ‘farmer for the day’.
