Fruit Salad Yummy Yummy

Welcome to Catania

Since Mum & Dad have ventured all the way to Griffith for a visit we have been doing all the touristy things and in doing so we have uncovered a real little treasure right on our doorstep. Cantania Fruit Salad Farm runs daily farm tours and is home to a gift shop filled with wines, jams, mustards and gifts right in Hanwood, NSW about 8km from Griffith.

Now a fruit salad farm doesn’t produce fruit salad, fresh or in a can it means that the farm produces several kinds of fruit and nuts. That is exactly what Catania produces, a myriad of fruit and nuts including prunes, pecans, walnuts, table grapes, wine grapes, oranges and more.

Your hosts Joe and Sharon are truly salt of the Earth, kind-hearted people who love life on the land and their passion for farming and the local area comes across with their interesting and informative tour. The tour takes you on a bus tour around the farm where you view the vineyards, sugar-plum & nut trees and irrigation channels. The tour is followed by a video depicting the history of the region. To top off a beautiful afternoon you are invited into the original mud brick house now gift shop to sample all home-made jams, mustards and wines plus all types of giftware.

If people ask me one thing to do while visiting Griffith I will definitely  be pointing them towards Catania Fruit Salad Farm.
