COVID-19 hospital horror – opening up and the dangers ahead

Over four glorious days in May, this year’s Harvest Food Festival will be a great opportunity for you to sample local food, beverages, culinary surprises and wonderful company as you explore some of our region’s finest offerings.

One of the events is a chance to relax with cocktails among the sugarcane at Husk Distillers in Tumbulgum, perhaps sampling their Bam Bam spiced rum, the Pure Cane agricole-style rum, or perhaps some of the Ink Gin. There will also be a Harvest Lunch at Three Blue Ducks at The Farm, or you might enjoy a festive Harvest Festival seasonal feast at Fins at Plantation House – which is the brand-new collaboration between Steven and Morgan Snow of Fins Seafood Restaurant and Tropical Fruit World. But there are many more events on offer.

Harvest Food Festival is an event for locals and visitors to the region to help connect people with real food on real farms and honour our amazing producers. Now in its third year, Harvest Food Festival event organisers (all volunteers from local food businesses) will showcase a series of local food tours, dinners and food experiences, from paddock to plate and seed to flower!

‘The Harvest Food Festival offers the community and visitors an opportunity to connect with local food producers and celebrate our abundant local food – northern rivers style,’ said Rebecca Zentveld, chair of the Harvest Food Festival Committee for Northern Rivers Food.

‘We are also very pleased to be presenting for the first time our inaugural Harvest Food Trail – with our local Northern Rivers Food producers opening their doors for a special ‘open day’ experience just for you over the weekend of 5–6 May. You will be able to jump into the car and drop into some of our participating farms across the region,’ said Rebecca.

Special earlybird tickets are on offer until Tuesday 3 April.

‘Part of enjoying the food, is knowing the back story: understanding where your food was grown, the sustainable methods used to grow or produce the food, the farmer who grew and brought the food to market or the local baker who lovingly baked the bread,’ said Rebecca.
