THE fresh and quality food produced by local farmers has caught the eye of My Kitchen Rules winners Dan and Steph Mulheron.

The couple said they travel to Bundaberg once a week to get fresh food for both their restaurant and their kitchen at home.

"We keep coming back because I text the farmers and it's there, picked fresh, the morning we are there to pick it up - it's the freshest it can possibly be, the price is better because and it's all season crop, so there's always something different,” Dan said.

"We first came up through a Food Tour with Susie, she organised a trip especially for us.

"After meeting the farmers and seeing how down-to-earth and approachable they are, it was a no brainer.”

When they are in town, Dan and Steph visit everyone from Bundy Limes, Chermond Mushroom Farm, Bargara Brewed, Windhum Farms for sweet potatoes, Bunda Ginga for ginger, dragonfruit farms, out to Alloway for their tomatoes and figs and the Chop Shop over North Bundaberg for their traditional pork sausage.

"The Chop Shop has one of the best pork snags I've ever had - we make our own for the restaurant, but we buy them for home,” Dan said.

Steph said they have been coming to Bundaberg for about five months to get their ingredients.

"We love supporting local farms and people,” she said.

"It's the least we can do, we get people you drive down to Hervey Bay to support us.

The Mulherons said as a part of the new trend in food, people wanted to know where their food came from.

In order to tell their customers and show appreciation to their farmers, they put together a small story with each dish giving background and history on the farm the produce was bought from.

"We also send the recipes to the farmers,” she said.

Their Hervey Bay cafe, EAT at Dan & Steph's, has been open for three years and is busy every day from 6am - 4pm.

Focusing primarily on this store, Dan and Steph said they have no plans to open another cafe anytime soon.

EAT at Dan and Steph's is at 449 Charlton Espl.
