Richmond Valley is the star of the show on Taste of Australia today, Sunday, April 17.

Former MasterChef contestant and celebrity chef Hayden Quinn visited Hogarth Range and Casino for the first episode of a new season of the foodie-lifestyle show.

First stop was Southview Orchard to sample the peaches. Except there weren’t any peaches. It’s was the wrong time of the year.

Luckily John De Kleuver was growing figs, and Hayden was happy to tuck into the ripe fruit picked straight from the tree.

Hayden also visited Our Cow in Casino to see their headquarters known as Cow Town, and to learn how they got started on their journey to provide ethically grown, free range organic meat to Australian families.
