Irene Dairy Farm offers a little something for everyone; there is the Dairy Shop that sells a decadent, rich, calorie laden thick cream (perfect for afternoon scones) and the rather unique concept of five litre buckets of fresh, raw farm milk. The shop is open from 8am to 6pm all year around (and by that I mean 365 days per year).
The estate boasts two restaurants, the Deck or Barn and both serve a range of freshly made breakfast and lunch dishes. Housed in well, a barn (and one of the original barns at that) directly across the farm yard from the shop, the Barn Restaurant serves breakfasts that range from fresh fruit and yoghurt to French toast to the Barn breakfast. Those with a lighter appetite will be satisfied with scones, muffins or pancakes from the Chefs Pantry while those visiting for lunch will have a tough choice choosing from the vast selection of salads, sandwiches, farm sandwiches and burgers on offer. Breakfast and lunch buffets are also offered on the weekends.
The Deck Restaurant is directly off the Dairy Shop and offers an equally delicious menu with all sorts of tasty treats. Breakfast options are crumpets, pancakes or a ‘proper’ cooked breakfast while sandwiches, open sandwiches, wraps, salads and chefs choices make up the rest of the menu - there is definitely enough to choose from.
