Announcement: NRF Harvest Food Trail back on…May 1-2 2021!

NRF members have the chance to be part of our upcoming NRF Harvest Food Trail May 1st -2nd  2021

The opportunity:

We would like to offer our NRF producers and food service members the chance to once again open their doors and promote food experiences with a “farm gate” / cellar door approach during the Harvest Food Trail weekend May 1st – 2nd 2021.

We are aiming to create our 2021 NRF food trail connecting people with real food & beverage experiences on farm.   This will extend from Tweed to Grafton in Northern Rivers NSW.

If you have been thinking of testing the waters of farm gate / cellar door experiences or are already established with these operations, then this may be the opportunity for you.

 

What’s new this year: tell your story!

  • We have a single focus for the 2021 Harvest Food Festival and that is to build and grow the food provenance of our region by sharing your stories;
  • We will focus on NRF Harvest Food Trail participants in our promotions / social media and public relations program in the lead up to the Harvest weekend, to help share your stories;
  • We will also be offering agri-tourism training in the new year to help you monetize the food trail and build your own branding / story, in the lead up to the event. This will be offered as an added extra to those who would like it (at cost).
