That’s exactly what you get though at Three Blue Ducks, located atThe Farm at Byron Bay.
Is the food here all that it’s quacked up to be? Let’s find out.
Just off the Pacific Highway, you’ll find this 80 acre working farm with free-roaming heritage breed pigs, Scottish Highland cattle, chickens as well as fresh fruit, veg and nuts.
Everything grown at the farm contributes to the Three Blue Duck’s seasonal menu, so you get a real sense of paddock to platter eating.
After much menu perusal, we settled on the Avocado, Stracchino and Poached Eggs with Macadamia Crumb and Chilli Sourdough. This fresh breakfast was insanely tasty, with a perfectly ripe avocado and deep coloured egg yolks that made you realise how good it was to eat produce that was locally grown and lovingly cultivated.
Stracchino is a type of Northern Italian cheese, kind of like mozzarella. It was soft and light and a lovely addition to the breaky. The chilli sourdough had only a slight kick of chilli so didn’t overpower the other lovely tastes that were coming through from the rest of the dish.
We also had the Black Sausage and Scrambled Eggs with Dill Cucumber Yoghurt, Davidson Plum Jam, Slow Roasted Farm Tomato and Sourdough.
Black pudding lovers will go nuts for these black sausages- they were rich and abundantly meaty without being as heavy and dense as normal black pudding. They were magic with the tart Davidson Plum Jam which cut through the full-bodied meat beautifully.
The scrambled eggs were wonderfully creamy and velvety- much like an Elton John outfit.
The flat white was strong and robust, while there were lots of flavours happening in the Golden Chai. To be honest, I probably wouldn’t order the Golden Chai again- I know turmeric is a wonder spice at the moment for health reasons, but it was a bit overpowering and I felt it was too early in the morning for me to get my tastebuds around.
Being an extremely family-friendly destination, there is a ducklings menu available as well, to feed the small people before you can set them free to run around the farm afterwards and ensure you have a quiet car ride home.
