On Provenance - what does it mean and why is it so important? ⋆ Silver Compass Tours
P R O V E N A N C E // meaning “the place of origin”, when people start talking about the ‘provenance of food’ they are talking about where that apple you’re eating comes from, how it was grown (in a hothouse? organically?) and increasingly, who was the person who grew it?
We’re pretty excited about the maiden voyage of our Provenance Express event this April, because that’s the whole focus of our 3-day itinerary. Introducing you to the fabulous food and wine of our region and the awesome people producing it.
Our passionate locals are the faces behind the food and their enthusiasm for our cool-climate region – its abundance and fertility, perfect soils and climate – is infectious. More and more we are all moving towards sustainable and holistic farming practices here in the Orange region, with a focus on growing organic produce. And wow, can you taste the difference.
SO :: we’ve put together the Provenance Express during the Orange F.O.O.D Week festival as a slow travel, sustainable food odyssey, with a 3-day itinerary emphasising organic & biodynamic local food and wine experiences.
Embark on the journey to Orange,NSW Friday 5 April by train – we’ve got a dedicated carriage for up to 40 guests. Friday night we’re going to the Festival Night Markets; Saturday we’re spending on an organic farm and sustainable community, eating organic figs, olives, olive oil and drinking organic wine; Sunday we’re going rambling through organic vineyards and orchards and having lunch in an historic woolshed. You’ll be back in Sydney at 9pm on Sunday 7 April, planning your next trip back to Orange!
