@ Harvest | 8 January, 2022

2021 is history baby!

There is no going back now and even if there was, who would want to? Harvest is raring keen to relegate 2021 to the distant past and focus solely on making 2022 a year for the ages, for you and your community. Now entering our 10th year, Harvest is immensely proud and endlessly humbled to have become a rock for Launceston. We have so much in store for you for in 2022, bringing new and exciting ideas to life and continuing the incredible work of those before us. In trying times, we are beyond lucky and privileged to be there for our community, as we always will be. 

We know our stallholders feel the same, forever keen to bring you their very finest each week, with this week no exception. Case in point: stone fruit. It has been a challenging season for these growers. A late start, slow warming and rain at just the wrong times all contributing to an already challenging endeavour. Despite this, a full regiment consisting of Penna Valley Farm, Ferniehurst Cherries, Richmond Cherries  and All Things Cherry continue to win the battle and turn out for you. Laudable performances with delicious rewards for your support. 

Continuing the theme, we have Larry and Alison and their Real Beef are back from a spell, plus Luke and Bjarke and Luke from Oldway Farm loved cooking for you so much on at our Christmas market they’re returning again with their fare. Specialty meats and meat products, bought to you by very special people. Summer still has a fair way to go, may the BBQs and cookouts roll forth with gusto. 

Speaking of cookouts, local legend Guy at Mount Gnomon Farm has been smashing out a summer series of events on his property near Penguin. On Saturday the 29th of January, Mount Gnomon is proudly hosting the launch of Turn Up The Dial, a new and exciting farm festival with a difference. It is difficult to conceive of a more amazing space for an outdoor food and music event, and with the state of affairs in the arts and hospitality sectors right now everyone could use this cheer and delight in their lives. Save the date. Tickets and details on the links above. 

At Harvest we are continually looking for ways to expand our engagement with the broader community. One big focus for 2022 is to extend our Volunteer Program into community organisations and increase the breadth and depth of an already amazing pool of people. Are you part of an amazing community or not-for-profit organisation? If so, email us at [email protected] to sign up to our Community Engagement Program and let us work together to nourish and sustain our collective wellbeing.
