Set in the heart of the Granite Belt 15km south of Stanthorpe, the Bramble Patch occupies picturesque property tucked away high in the hills above Glen Aplin. At an altitude of 850m, we enjoy crisp frosty winters and mild summers, making our property a treat to visit all year round.
A family operated business since 1994, we manufacture a range of over 60 preserves in our on site factory. We have seen great success at many Fine Food Shows over the past few years, confirming our place amongst the top gourmet food producers from around Australia! With everything from jams, sauces, coulis, vinegars, chutney's, pickles and fruit pastes, as well as fortified berry wines, there is something to tempt everyone's tastebuds. With everything available for testing you can also "try before you buy", which is all part of the fun! While a large part of our product range features berries, we also utilise the abundant fruit and vegetables available here on the Granite Belt including eggplants, tomatoes, capsicums, figs, quinces and grapes, with many of these forming the base for our most popular products. Our current number one seller is Eggplant Kassoundi - a spicy Indian style eggplant chutney.
The Bramble Patch is definitely a food lovers heaven! As well as our delicious gourmet products we serve a range of luscious berry desserts that can be enjoyed with an espresso coffee, either next to the roaring log fire during winter, or in our leafy, manicured gardens during the warmer months. Try a sensational Hot Waffle, house-made Blackberry & Apple Pies (during Winter), freshly prepared Poffertjes (mini Dutch pancakes), or our very own "Ice Burger" - a chocolate sponge filled with ice-cream and berry sorbet that is warmed and then smothered in our Bramble Patch berry coulis! The kids will also love to watch our famous ice-cream machine churn them out a yummy berry ice-cream while they wait! So, based on this, make sure you plan your visit to The Bramble Patch to coincide with morning or afternoon tea, or enjoy lunch at one of the wineries and finish off with dessert here. We also like to say that "life is short - and there is nothing wrong with dessert for lunch!"
The Bramble Patch is simply a great place to stop and appreciate our serene, country surroundings - a unique concept not to be missed on any trip to the Granite Belt, that will be enjoyed by all of the family.
Groups are very welcome, although we do encourage bookings to ensure you have the best possible Bramble Patch experience.
