Du Fermier is Annie Smithers’ stunning fine dining restaurant in Trentham, on a 20 minutes drive from Daylesford. The restaurant is located on the high street in Trentham, and hard to recognise while past.
The farmhouse feel comes through in the interior design of the restaurant as well as the classic French farmhouse cuisine that is being served in this small restaurant.
The set menu that is served at Du Fermier is seasonal and set by Chef Annie Smithers every week based on the produce that is harvested from the garden at Babbington Park, the chef’s productive farm in Lyonville.
Annie Smithers is one of Victoria’s most well known chefs, having previously headed up the kitchen at The Lake House in the 90-ies. In 2005 Smithers opened “Annie Smither’s Bistrot” in Kyneton and that led to ultimately opening Du Fermier in 2012 in Trentham.
