The Samford Harvest menu changes with the season, but the ethos remains the same: to shine the spotlight squarely on the local ingredients.

We haven't looked far and wide for food producers, nor have we searched high and low. Actually, we've gone no further than our very own backyard!
Despite being just over 20kms from Brisbane CBD, the Samford Valley region houses a wealth of farmers and growers who produce an impressive array of food.
Some of the producers we feature include:
Samford is pretty rural hamlet, north west of Brisbane . The region has a proud farming history with banana plantations and dairies once dotting its rolling hills. Today it's better known for it's rural residential living, but the tradition of farming lives on with a variety of small crop farmers & beef producers.
Our venue for the Harvest Dinner is the Samford Farmers' Hall in Samford Village. The hall has been a hub for all types of Samford celebrations for 100 years. The weatherboard building was transported from Lutwyche and erected on its current site after a group of local farmers saw the need for such a venue in the village. It provides an historic and fitting backdrop for a celebration of the Samford harvest in 2018.
