Brookfield’s Wild Canary Goes On The Road For the First Time

Right smack in the middle of Brookfield Garden Centre lies the Wild Canary Cafe. Established in 2014, the cafe has gained an excellent reputation amongst the area’s discriminating regulars. This week, the Wild Canary Cafe will have their first on-the-road event in the Lockyer Valley at 9Dorf Farms on 26th August, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.


The Event

Witness how your food goes from the farm to your fork. See the farmers in action and enjoy delicious lunch sourced from the surrounds at the historic Grantham Butter Factory. Engage with the farmers and learn more about their lives, their products and their work. You can also buy the produce and take it home for you to cook on your own.

Wild Canary is a botanical bistro owned by Scott and Robin McLay. Every morning before they open, you will spot their head chef Glen Barratt and head gardener Alex Robinson picking up fresh herbs and spices that they will use for their food service.

The cafe is open for breakfast and lunch. Check out their Pork belly croquettes, Bauer’s organic sweet corn, beans, watercress, confit garlic, sourdough & free range poached egg.
