REGENERATIVE HYPER-LOCAL WILD FORGAGED FOOD
Delicious chef-prepared food
Our regenerative, hyper-local and simple food demonstrates a way of eating that continues the traditions of the past and supports our shared future. As we cultivate and restore the wellbeing of our planet Earth, we cultivate and restore the wellbeing within ourselves.
Our 'Soil to Gut' Menu
To grow and eat in a way that serves the health of people and the planet.
We journey well beyond the farm to table concept and delve deeper into our soils and our gut. We believe that the soils in which we grow food and our guts in which the food ends up, are one and the same.
Since the health and contents of the soil will inevitably end up in our bodies, we should treat them with the same care. Our locally sourced, home-grown and wild foraged ingredients reflect how we nourish the land and local environment. We keep our menus simple so that our incredible ingredients can take the stage.
