THE flavours of the South Burnett will be put on full display during South Burnett and Cherbourg On Show this long weekend.

Allan and Mandy Evans, from Bunya Red, are opening their farm to visitors from far and wide to experience the intensive work that goes into producing their award-winning goods.

"It's intensive farming because of the value of work you put in - it's all hand picking," Mandy Evans said.

Allan Evans said they rolled the dice with the crop, but it had paid off.

"It was a bit of a gamble putting in a crop that's never been put in," he said.

"We're the first caper farm in Queensland."

Heading north, the Yurri Muntha Cafe in Cherbourg will be serving local beef ribs and duck on Saturday.

Cafe manager Sheree Strauss hopes to improve on the successful lunch they hosted last year.

"It's a focus on local food and wine," she said.

There will also be indigenous dance performances, along with Ration Shed tours and children's art workshops.
