A taste of Daylesford and regional Victoria by local, small-batch makers.

At Daylesford Picnic Boxes we whole-heartedly commit to being considerate of the natural environment, and acknowledge the Dja Dja Wurrung Traditional Owners as custodians of the land we’re so fortunate to live, work and relax on.

In keeping with this commitment, the food items have been selected not only for their locality, superior taste and small-batch quality, but also because of their makers’ shared commitment to making and packaging their products in an environmentally thoughtful way.

The picnic box and food packaging is all either recyclable or certified home-compostable, and each box come with a recycling guide to help you make the best choices when disposing of the packaging.

In an effort to minimise our contribution to landfill, to replace single-use products, each box contains a picnic ‘keep-kit’ including some useful picnic tools which can be used for many picnic years to come.

Your box is generously filled with enough picnic food for two hungry buddies to share, all made locally by small-batch makers. The items on the box have been thoughtfully curated to include a selection of picnic food that we genuinely love, and to give you a taste of the abundance of deliciousness created in and around Daylesford.

Each box includes:
• two types of cheeses
• two types of cured meat products (may include a smoked seafood product)
• two types of savoury relishes
• one sweet jam / jelly
• fresh-baked sourdough and / or gluten free crackers
• a variety of sweet treats.

Each box contains a little description of each item, who their maker is and where you can find them again, and while each item has been chosen to complement the others, in your box you’ll find a note with some of our favourite pairing suggestions for you to try.

Each Daylesford Picnic Box includes a picnic ‘keep-kit’. The intention of this is to arm you with all the tools you need to be able to enjoy your picnic right away, and reduce the need for you to add to landfill by replacing single-use items for those you can re-use for future picnicking.

Your keep-kit includes useful items such as bamboo chopping/serving board, a calico cutlery pouch including a multi-purpose picnic knife and wooden condiment spoons, washable picnic napkins, a silicon pouch for your left-overs and a calico over-the-shoulder satchel (with long handles for hands-free convenience).
