Iron Gates development at Evans Head: application to ‘amend’ DA refused

Terra Firma is revolutionising ‘eating out’ with their no-boundaries cooking-over-fire dining experiences coming 24 June to the Mid North Coast.

Terra Firma Dining is an immersive outdoor dining experience like no other. Inspired by the traditional Argentinian Asado barbecue method, all the food is cooked low, slow and exclusively over an open flame. Owner and Head Chef Charly Pretet’s mission is to connect people to the environment where their food is grown. 

That’s why his decision to partner with Georgina and Sam Baker of Levenvale Farm, owners of a regenerative and certified organic farm, growing the best organic produce in Bellingen Shire, makes a whole lot of sense. 

Since 2021, Levenvale Farm has been serving unforgettable Paddock to Plate dining  experiences, showcasing produce direct from the farm – the source to the consumer. At Levenvale Farm, diners will enjoy 100 per cent grass-fed Bello beef, pastured and organic chicken, and biodynamic vegetables, all grown in paddocks right next to them. 

‘Levenvale Farm is a place that nourishes the soil, the plants, the animals, and us. We want to create a place where people can eat together, learn together, share experiences and grow together,’ Georgina Baker explains.

Local boys, Bellingen Brewing Co and Byron Bay’s own Cape Byron Gin will serve their award-winning beverages, and guests will be treated to live music from Hannah Harlen and Afie James.

Themed ‘Experience Regenerative’, the event promotes a message that regenerative producers are our pathway to a better future. 

Charly Pretet will host a Fire Cooking Masterclass the next day for attendees and industry chefs who want to master outdoor fire cooking.
