To Our Harvest Community,⁠

Our restaurant will be temporarily reducing its hours from seven days to five days for the next three weeks. Circumstances have reduced some of our teams availability so we will be focusing on a strong five day presence to maintain the level of excellence you have come to expect. This will also allow our people to be at their best. You deserve our best.⁠

We will be temporarily closed on:⁠
January 3rd - 4th⁠
January 10th - 11th⁠
January 17th - 18th

The Deli and Bakery will be operating as per normal hours.⁠

We apologize for any inconveniences as we adapt. ⁠

Thank you for all of the support, and we can't wait to serve you again.⁠

We have decided to cancel our NYE gathering in the deli, garden and village green to keep our beloved community, families and staff safe during this time⁠

Our wonderful Harvest Restaurant, Bakery and Deli will be OPEN during this festive time as usual and please visit our website for opening hours.⁠

Enjoy our first installment of our Long Lunch Series with David Moyle & Matt Stone, creating a seafood feast matched with ice cold Jilly wine & local beer!

A bittersweet moment...

This week we had to say goodbye to one of our Harvest family.  The staggering giant that loomed over our restaurant and was a centerpiece for Newrybar year round had to come down this week.  After a branch sheered off last week, we sought the advice of three arborists who advised us of the need to remove the entire tree due to safety reasons.  After tough deliberation, and a few tears, the decision to remove the tree was made in order to protect our community and our restaurant.

We gave out an online survey last week to crowdsource what could be planted to replace this beauty, and we appreciate each and every contribution.  There were many great submissions and a few that made us laugh.  Stay tuned to our socials and we'll keep our community posted of our decision.

It's been a focal point for the entire life of Harvest, having been planted early on in the infant years of the business.   It's with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to this gentle giant that shielded us from countless rain storms and provided endless shade during its life.  But as with anything in life, we must keep moving forward.  The removal of this tree has been a reminder, along with the entirety of 2020 and 2021, to keep moving forward, to evolve with the times, and to stay positive, no matter what.


Red Earth Farm Tour with the Harvest Family

Our restaurant staff took a tour of Red Earth Farm, owned by Neil and Belinda in Fernleigh, New South Wales.

A little history on Red Earth Farm:

The couple were living in Canada for ten years together (Neil was born there). Being an avid gardener, Belinda worked an office job at a university in Canada, but had never farmed a day in her life. Her parents were pushing for her to move back to Australia and this presented them an opportunity to come back and start farming. They moved onto her parents farm which originally ran cattle and started to pursue their dreams of being farmers.

They started out small on quite a steep patch of land and moved gradually down the hill until they run out of room.  Their parents then moved off the land and they removed the cattle off some of the only flat land on their farm.  So Neil and Belinda kept expanding and took over that level patch of soil. With intentions to convert that steep land into an orchard, they have now been operating for 5 years and have seem to find their flow.

Using small scale practices and machinery, they are able to maximize the efficiency out of their farm to employ not only themselves, but two employees.  They do have a tractor that they use to help with bigger jobs. They also use something called a Paper Pot Transplanter, that helps maximize the time they spend planting.  Made in Japan, the couple says that this machine has "changed their lives dramatically".  Belinda goes on to say, "we hand transplanted everything, which is a lot..when you start to get to big numbers, it's kind of back breaking work.  Pretty much, 2 - 3 full days we would have to spend transplanting to keep up with things." They are able to transplant 264 plants in around 1 minute with the Paper Pot Transplanter.

Belinda admits she is an amateur flower farmer that's "slowly taking over" more and more of their rows that normally would be planted out with food.  The couple admits they tend to plant crops that have a short turn around time, stating this is one of the ways to make small scale farming profitable.

Connecting our staff with the local producers that grow the beautiful vegetables we use in the restaurant was a beautiful experience. With such a wide variety of crops to choose from, keep your eyes out for Red Earth Farm at the local markets here in the Northern Rivers.


To all the hospitality legends in the Northern Rivers,⁠

We wanted to give something back to the Hospitality community here in the Northern Rivers.  And so the Hospo Hamper was born.

The hospitality industry has suffered recently due to the lockdowns happening in New South Wales.  ⁠Not only have our businesses all over the state suffered, but our collective mental health as well.  For an industry that thrives off social interaction, we wanted to show how much we appreciate you all.

We reached out to a few local businesses and put together the Hospo Hamper:

-1 x chorizo twin pack from @salumiaustralia⁠⁠
-1 x sausage coil from @salumiaustralia
-1 x beer from @stoneandwood⁠⁠
-1 x gin & tonic from @capebyrondistillery⁠⁠
-1 x lasagne from @harvestnewrybar⁠⁠


All items were donated to support our hospitality community here in the Northern Rivers.⁠

Stop by Harvest this Friday and enjoy a few tasty treats, ON US!⁠

First in, best dressed, because there's only limited quantities available!⁠

This is an offering geared towards hospitality workers living and working in the Northern Rivers. ⁠
