Byron at Byron Farmers Market Dinners

Regular Thursday Farmers Market Dinners at the Byron at Byron have been spiced up lately, as local beverage suppliers such as Stone & Wood, Granite Belt Cider Co and Ink Gin have been presenting and showcasing their products at tastings that have been very well received!

The Echo has been privileged to witness firsthand the drama of Ink Gin (handmade at Tumbulgum) infused with ph-sensitive Butterfly Pea flower petals, transforming from its natural royal blue and purple hue to a bluish pink in the presence of tonic water. Importantly, the gin is very safe to drink. Passionate gin scientist and Byron at Byron sales director Heath Batterham says the gin-pouring/gin-drinking experiment can be repeated endlessly with very predictable results.

These activities have been set up on The Restaurant verandah from 4.30 till 6.30pm each Thursday. The suppliers have been present at each event to provide background information on the product. This Thursday, the tasting (of Imogen’s Farm Limoncello) is complimentary for those booked into the Farmers Market Dinner (priced at $52 per person).

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
