What you'll do
You'll discover the future of food at our coastal landbased aquaculture farm tucked away amongst the maze of old stone walls in Rossaveel. Guided by Sinead and Cindy, you'll experience the joys of identifying and foraging seaweed along the rugged coastline and enjoy a tour of this modern aquaculture system. We'll provide you with a delicious tasting of fresh seafood dishes that makes use of the seafood grown on the farm as well as fresh wild ingredients foraged from the nearby sea.
Sinead is the creator of Mungo Murphy's Seaweed Co. She created him late one night as she was trying to write a story but instead emerged with a business idea. Sinead grew up harvesting seaweed to feed the abalone on her mother's abalone farm; but only after studying law and working at a desk in an office wearing regular work clothes, did she begin to miss the fresh air and lifestyle out West. She now enjoys wearing wellies to work and delights in experimenting with various algae specimens to her hearts content. But then, Sinead has always been a bit of a weirdo.

Where you'll be
We'll begin the day with an interactive tour of our wind powered, land based abalone farm, taking you through the history and science of abalone production. Before meeting the abalone and other sea creatures that live on the farm, we'll take a walk along the rocky shore to identify and taste the variety of fresh seaweeds and sea herbs that are in season before returning to the abalone farm for a tour and tasting of the foraged and farmed produce.
