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:


WHAT'S INSIDE:⁠⁠
-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. ⁠

PICKUP DATE & TIME⁠

Friday September 10th between 4 pm - 6 pm⁠

A CONSCIOUS LIVING EXPERIENCE

WITH THE YOGA SOCIAL

We’ve teamed up with Harvest Newrybar to offer a rejuvenating body-mind retreat aimed at enhancing your overall wellbeing and expanding your consciousness.

Through holistic practices combined with the nourishments of a natural setting in the Byron Hinterlands, the Spring Retreat is an immersive experience. Join us for 3 nights and 3 days of yoga, meditation, self development workshops, healing experiences, and conscious living talks with experienced professionals.

This retreat will offer daily yoga practices to support your holistic experience, deepen your yoga practice, and strengthen your connection within.

Morning flow practices will be mindfully sequenced and themed to build on one another and to complement our workshops. A Yin Yoga or Restorative session will be offered each evening, allowing you to stabilise the mind and ease your body into deep relaxation.

Classes are suitable for all levels and will include guided meditation and breathing techniques. Modifications to postures will be offered with a focus on self-awareness and ease of movement.

About The Yoga Social and Yin & Din:

Born out of an idea to collaborate with some of the incredible people and brands in the Byron shire and bring the community together in a soulful way, the Yoga Social’s purpose is to offer mindful and memorable experiences that inspire positive change.
Join The Yoga Social for a nourishing, uplifting evening of yin yoga with immersive soundscape artist and cellist Conrad Hamill, followed by an intimately social dining experience at Harvest Newrybar.

Every detail of the evening is carefully considered to offer you a multi-sensory experience that nurtures connection and community. The Yoga Social hosts will guide you through a relaxing candlelit yin yoga to an immersive sound healing experience at the Newrybar Hall, leading into a 3-course fine dining experience with wine or non-alcoholic elixir pairings at Harvest Restaurant. The Harvest menu includes seasonal, local foods sourced from artisanal producers and their own edible gardens alongside foraged, native and wild Australian ingredients.

Enjoy live music from Australian cellist and soundscape artist Conrad Hamill, dedicated to using sound to breathe life into live environments and yoga experiences.

Our next Yin & Din will be hosted on August 6th, first starting in Newrybar Hall and then moving across to the Old Historic Bakery for a 3 course dinner, with an optional matched wine.

MARKET PLACE HIBERNATION

After over fourteen months of consistent service to our amazing community the team behind our weekly Market Place offering are taking a well deserved break!

Our little business needs some tending and fertilising over the coming months so roots can spread further and support more growth.

We are proud of what we have created thus far, enjoyed the journey and will especially cherish the relationships we have forged during this challenging period in history.

 

OUR COMMITMENT

We will continue to support our local growers and their market access through our deli, events and restaurant. We will continue to share their stories and work with them closely on some of our shared projects to create awareness, education and engagement toward a healthy local food system.

 

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

Firstly, to our producers who have supported us, the tireless work involved in bringing high quality produce into our community is recognised and appreciated. You are the change our food system requires.

To our customers, those who have been with us since we started and those who have been adventurous enough to try our service, we thank you and honour your commitment to local, seasonal produce, to our community of producers and to the potential of a food system that supports human, animal and planetary health.

 

DATES TO REMEMBER

Our last day of activity for this period will be May 29, 2021.

We look forward to remaining engaged with you through our workshops and community events we are currently planning.

Over the coming months we will keep you informed of our plans for the Market Place evolution. Exciting times ahead!

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us via email on [email protected]

 

With thanks and love,

Blair & Joe

Fair Game Wild Venison

Jonas Widjaja

"Jonas is one of those Kiwis who moved to Australia to study and work, and never left. Living with his family in Northern NSW, Jonas brought his love of hunting, the great outdoors, and fixing broken things with him when he moved to Australia. But if only one thing defines him, it’s his passionate dislike of waste. He will go to great lengths to avoid buying new things, and much to his wife’s chagrin, finds second, third and fourth lives in almost everything that passes through his hands – he’s the original tinkerer.

His passion for food waste turned itself into Fair Game when, after discovering he was unable to donate excess meat after a hunting trip, he realized he could do something that would make a difference. He learnt about the convoluted legal process wild game harvesters go through to get meat on plates, and it spurred a passion that led to the formation of Fair Game Wild Venison.

As many small businesses do, Fair Game started as an idea at the kitchen table and quickly grew. As restaurants, deli’s and foodies learnt about the quality of the meat, combined with the ethics and environmental benefits of wild venison, the business expanded and now services the Northern Rivers, the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Perth.

In recognition of the quality, ethos and sustainability of the product, Jonas was recently awarded a Gold Medal at the Delicious. Produce Awards 2020. Receiving this recognition in his first year of trading is surely a sign of things to come."

 

Come feast with us this Sunday, March 28th

 

From 12 pm - 3 pm, we will be cooking up venison over our open fire.  There will be Wandana beer, Brookie's Gin and Jilly Wine to wash it all down.

Byron Grass Fed Beef

 

POSTPONED DUE TO UNSEASONABLY HOT WEATHER

 

December 13th - 12 PM - 3 PM

 

A little bit about Andrew and his company...

 

"Byron Grass Fed was born from a desire to connect ethical meat producers to like minded consumers.

 

We believe this is a model that helps us move closer to a more sustainable and healthier food system for the future.

We feel strongly that it's time to honour food produced with the best intentions and reward farmers

who are not just producing food but providing a service to our land.

 

We are passionate about making the best choices for health our land, animals and us. We are excited to be part

of the growing ethical food movement that seeks to connect good produce to those who seek it.

 

All Byron Grass Fed Beef is sourced directly from a very select group of farmers local to the Byron Bay region that are 100% grass fed and finished, no grain. Our farmers do not use chemicals on their pastures and use farming practices that are regenerative.  That is, working with nature not against to give back to the land rather than simply taking from it an approach we should all consider greatly when thinking about food.

 

By bringing the most ethical sustainable farmers together we can make grass fed and finished beef in our region accessible which is something we haven’t see before as it is more challenging to farm this way in the north coast of NSW, but we are proving it can be done."

 

Check out the video below to listen to Andrew speak on regenerative farming, grass fed beef,

and the importance of

knowing where our food originates.

Why is Fair Game Wild Venison a better meat option?

NATURAL

Wild deer are free to roam and graze with no chemical inputs and no restrictions on diet or movement.

ETHICAL

Our harvesters are trained in the ethical shot, meaning the animals we harvest experience no stress in dispatch. Wild venison requires no live-transport, no mustering into yards, and no abattoir.

LESS WASTE

Wild deer are pest animals in Australia, and are routinely culled and left in the field to go to waste. Every animal we harvest reduces this waste, and we work to use as much of the animal as we’re legally allowed to acquire.

COLLABORATIVE

Our field harvesters work with landholders to control deer numbers on their properties, reducing grazing competition with livestock and crop damage in horticultural enterprises.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

By eating wild venison you’re protecting our vulnerable and unique natural assets. Deer have a massive impact on the bush, and removing this introduced species from the natural environment leaves room for our native species to thrive.

HEALTHY

Where do we start – wild venison has almost no saturated fat, is high in protein, B vitamins thiamine, riboflavin, niacin and vitamin B-12 which aid brain and nervous system function, help turn food into energy and keep your skin and hair healthy. It is high in zinc (for your immune system), iron (for forming red blood cells) and phosphorus (for kidney function and creating strong bones). Not to mention, it tastes bloody good too.
