Apthorpe Farm, Gourmet Food Store
OUR SHOP: Apthorpe Farm Marketplace is located at "Abbie Lane" Shop 2, 10522 New England Highway, Highfields. We are a small gourmet food store which stocks local and regional produce. We also stock a variety of fruit and vegetables (in season)which are mainly sourced from local producers.
We are very supportive of people with gluten intolerance and try to get products in that have very little preservatives in them.
As a farmer myself I am very supportive of local people and local farmers. Our store provides a place where people can come to relax have a chat , coffee, cake(From the cafe onsite) and a nice browse around the store. We also have a range of local artists displaying their artwork in the store and we invite you all to come in for a browse and support all of the local people in our area.
Our store is very supportive of Australian farmers and also Heartkids QLD. Our son was diagnosed with heart complications when he was a little baby and only survived till 6 weeks old. We run a book exchange and a percentage of the profits goes to the heartkids. It is a very strong and important part of what we do and would love you to come and support our store.
OUR REGION AND FARM TOURS: If you love the great outdoors we have plenty to offer. With the beautiful rolling hills and dense rainforest, located on the edge of the great diving range, Hampton (The High Country) is an easy 2 hour drive West of Brisbane.
