Margaret River is the food basket of picnic produce. With world-class wines, gourmet cheese, and plenty of fresh fruit and veg, it’s as if this growing country was designed with a picnic basket in mind.
And what better way to enjoy a picnic than out in the fresh air in which it was grown?
But we know organising a picnic can be a basketful at times, and Eagle Bay Olives and Happs Winery are a couple of local businesses who eliminate the stress of preparation with their beautiful picnic hampers made entirely of local produce.
They’ve been producing extra virgin olive oil at the Eagle Bay Olive Farm for 16 years. Pair some of the golden liquid with a selection of their naturally processed olives and carefully chosen produce from other local producers and you’ve got yourself an afternoon spread fit for kings. The hampers take just a few moments to prepare and you can enjoy them right there in the garden or take them away to have at the beach or wherever you are heading!
At Happs, rather, it’s a make-your-own-hamper situation. You’ll be faced with a fully stocked counter of local cheeses, olives, charcuterie, crackers, chocolates, dips and much more – spend what you like, and take what you want, all to be devoured on location. Opt for a shaded picnic table outside or grab one of the supplied picnic rugs and settle in to admire the bush setting.
