HOGFEST 2018

HOGFEST 2018 SEPTEMBER 22

 

Hogfest is our 5th annual on-farm lunch event and is a celebration of biodynamic farming, artisan charcuterie and seasonal eating at Bundarra, Barham.

Join us for a farm tour on arrival with glass of delicious Restdown Wine or a Four Pillars Gin cocktail in hand and delicious seasonal and porky drenched canapés followed by a long lazy lunch, salami competition and live music. This a great local event and opportunity to wind down in the country and enjoy the surroundings of the state forest, the farm and our beloved heritage breed pigs. The butchery will be open for a look to see where we handcraft our goods and the kids are free to roam the garden and visit the piglets while we feed and entertain you. Join us to celebrate the heritage Berkshire breed pigs and all good things that make our country life so good!

Food & Wine

This year we’ll have a nose to tail style ‘buffet’ (not your typical buffet but more a long lazy grazing eat as you go kind of thing). We are cooking a whole pig lots of different ways alongside some smashingly good salads, charcuterie and end of winter desserts, with a little influence of some international travels we’ve had recently. We’re pairing up with superstars Four Pillars Gin and Restdown Wine who are both matching drinks 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

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 around the farm and garden with our kids- typically the kids get a good day in exploring and making cubbies. 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.
