We at Ferment! Festival are big supporters of great, fresh food and the people and small businesses that are behind them. Be sure to get along to Kelmarna's Harvest Festival 2019 this Sunday 10th March, 10am-4pm. It'll be AMAZING!
Kelmarna’s Harvest Festival is our invitation to our community to gather round and share in the food that our land and our collective work have produced over the summer. Entry is free as always, so bring your friends and family!
This year’s edition will play host to a unique collaboration from four special Auckland restaurants, each pushing the boundaries of local and sustainable food.
Chefs from Orphans kitchen, Cazador, Paris Butter & Culprit. will meet over the wood-fired barbecue to create beautiful food inspired by the season and the gardens, with all funds raised going to support Kelmarna’s environmental education and therapeutic work. Once again you can pre-book your BBQ plate to beat the queues and make sure you don't miss out!
We’re delighted to be joined again this year by generous long-time supporters Bread & Butter Bakery and Cafe, Little bird organics & The Unbakery,Millers Coffee, Serious Food Co., Karma Cola, & more TBA.
For the first time this festival, we are excited to welcome Stone Soup Syndicate as collaborators, presenting the Food Matters programme. Bringing the magazine to life for the day, Stone Soup will curate a programme of talks, discussions, and demonstrations, focussing on how we can all be part of creating a more sustainable food system.
Talented local musicians will again be provided the soundtrack to the day from our stage in the paddock, full line up coming soon!
Our Kids Field will be back and bigger than ever, with a host of farm activities for your small people to get stuck into, including the return of our obstacle course, races, face painting, garden crafts & more.
