Getting a decent, healthy feed when you're on the road isn't easy. From the highway, Maccas and servos can look like your only options. However, if you know where to go and when, there are some top spots serving delicious feasts, from The Sir George in Jugiong to The River Deck in Albury. The latest addition to this top-notch class of vendors is the Ingelara Farm Truck, a roadside food truck serving up fresh (and warm) seasonal and organic dishes on the Monaro Highway on the way to NSW's snow fields.
Co-owners Tom Osborne and Daniel "Sausage" Nixon live the biodynamic Snowy Mountains farm after which the food truck has been named, where they grow their own produce and create their offerings from scratch. This includes organic soups, sourdough, smoked pork and chicken, pumpkin pie, filter coffee and biodynamic veggies. Right now, the duo is set up with one crowd in mind: keen skiers. Whether you're heading to the slopes at Perisher, Jindabyne or Thredbo or sadly making your way home, you'll find the micro kitchen in Bredbo Village, about an hour south of Canberra. They're just outside the Christmas Barn on the Monaro Highway every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8.30am till 5pm until the end of September.
And, when the ski season is all over, keep an eye on their travels by following @ingelarafarmtruck.
The Ingelara Food Truck is currently located outside the Bredbo Christmas Barn, 23 Monaro Highway, Bredbo on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. For mroe info, visit their Instagram.
