👩‍🎨🌳SCHOOL HOLIDAY FUN AT MAYFIELD🌳👨‍🎨 Mayfield has released details of its forthcoming school holiday program and we cannot wait to host lots of Mini Mayfielders over the holidays.

Of course, parents are also more than welcome to come and enjoy the full 65-hectare garden which will be open from 4 to 19 July.

Here are the details:
1) Free Lunch for Kids🥪

From 6 to 10 July, Mayfield will serve free lunch to children aged 12 years and under with a Garden Entry ticket. Parents can also enjoy an adult version of our special Mayfield packed lunch by simply adding $10.00 to the price of an Adult Entry ticket. Book in advance or order by 11.30am on the day to secure your free lunch.

2) Mini Mayfielder Adventure Day🎨🏃‍♀️ Each day from Wednesday 15 July to Friday 17 July, children aged 5 to 12 years are invited to experience a special adventure at Mayfield. Parents can drop off their children at 10.45am and collect them again at 3.00pm once they have completed an art class, eaten lunch and taken a special kids’ tour of the garden, including some time in the famous Mayfield maze. All-inclusive $50 per child and $40 for any additional siblings.

To secure your spot we strongly suggest pre-booking.

Harvest Cafe's ANZAC Biscuit Recipe

We miss the delicious cakes and coffees from Harvest Cafe & Store. Hopefully, it won't be too much longer before we can all enjoy them again. For now here's a simple recipe for you to try at home from Head Chef, Chris Ringrose using some locally sourced ingredients.

Ingredients:
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup plain Manildra Flour
3/4 cup sugar
125g butter, cubed
1 large rounded tablespoon golden syrup
OR
1 large rounded tablespoon of Beekeeper's Inn honey.
(If using honey, turn the temperature down when heating the butter and honey together, as well as the oven temp when baking as the biscuits may burn.)
1 teaspoon bi-carb soda
2 tablespoons hot water

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 160°C and grease 2 baking trays.
2. Mix together the oats, flour and sugar in a bowl. Melt the butter and golden syrup or honey together, add bi-carb soda dissolved in hot water.
Pour the melted mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well.
3. Roll into balls the size of a walnut and place on the prepared trays. Bake for about 20 minutes until golden. Allow to cool and crisp on tray.

Makes 40-50 biscuits.

Did you know, ANZAC biscuits were made as a long shelf-life, hard tack biscuit eaten as a substitute for bread during WWI. Early versions of the ANZAC biscuit recipe did not contain coconut, and were often baked so hard that some soldiers preferred to grind them up and eat as porridge.
