Eat Local All Year Round
While we all love Eat Local Month, our aim is to educate and inspire a year-round Eat Local commitment. So without further ado we’d like to shine the light on the restaurants and cafes that serve local produce all year, working closely with local farmers and producers on what’s in season and designing menus and dishes that highlight this. It means that whenever you visit our beautiful region, you can book here and know it’s all local, straight outa the Scenic Rim!
We salute you!
