Regional Harvest is the story of the farmers and their produce from the beautiful Lockyer Valley, Scenic Rim and Southern Downs regions. Their journey, from country to city, will give EKKA attendees an opportunity to discover the array of food, wine and gourmet products that are just down the road.
Regional Harvest will profile the wealth of the regions’ food production, especially the thousands of tonnes of vegetables which are shipped throughout the country during the winter months.
Regional Harvest will also shine a light on the agri-tourism offering of the regions. In less than two hours, Brisbane people can escape the city and enjoy a picnic in a peaceful country setting, stay in a cosy bed and breakfast and toasting marshmallows over an open fire, exploring nature’s playground with bushwalks or just relaxing with a good glass of wine.
Consumers will be given an opportunity to connect with regional produce by dining at the Regional Harvest Café. Operated by well-known Brisbane chef, Caroline Jones of the Three Girls Skipping café in Graceville, the café will feature a menu overflowing with regional delights.
