This includes a long table feast of pork- nose to tail style. We are cooking a whole pig lots of different ways alongside some smashingly good salads, charcuterie and end of winter desserts. We’re pairing up with local superstars Restdown Wines so you will get to taste their Organic range of wines matched with our pork. We also supply beers, mid strength and light. For gluten free people we have GF bread on site- yippee! Just let us know so we can find you. Everything on the menu other than the bread is GF. Vegetarians will not be specially catered for sorry, this is a meat loving event but you are welcome to eat lots of salads.
Kids 12 and under are free and can enjoy a table of their own with fun activities to do after their lunch, or just run loose in the garden with our kids. There is plenty of room and visual for parents to keep an eye on things. We have a trampoline, lots of chooks, the piglets and a big space that kids can keep busy in for hours.
