Our region has embraced the 100–Mile catch-cry of local not global to promote sustainability, economic prosperity and to teach city dwellers the joy of eating seasonally
100 Mile Diet
The 100 Mile Diet concept originated in Canada where a couple pledged to eat only produce that came from within 100 miles (160km) radius of their home town for 12 months.
Arguably there are fewer regions in Australia than Orange better placed to enjoy a rich and rewarding 100 Mile eating experience.
Our bounty includes meat, fruit, berries and vegetables, to flour, nuts, cheese, milk, eggs and even truffles. Oh, and of course, wine.
