The Harvest management team

For over 100 years the site of Harvest in Bangalow has been a post office, general store and residence, then it became the Harvest Cafe under Gary and Emma Sharman, until around thirteen years ago when Brooke Hudson, together wih co-founders Kass and Tristan Grier, took over Harvast in Newrybar, building it up to become an innovative and iconic dining destination in the area.

This week the Harvest Newrybar family celebrated together as Brooke went on maternity leave to start a family of her own.

Brooke said to the team, ‘Thank you all for what has been a huge 13 years of my life, and although many of you are new to the mix, some of us have been working together for nearly 10 years. Be it one summer or ten, it’s been a pleasure working alongside everyone.

‘For Kass, Tristan and I, growing that “Humble little Cafe that Could” as 26-year-olds into the incredible space we all call work today has been the ride of my life thus far – growing the place as well as the people, and our little families too. I couldn’t have done it with two better people – for that I am eternally thankful.’
