Through a year that has seen the farm burnt by bushfires, flooded by rains and almost closed down by the pandemic Harvest Farms has been working tirelessly with the team at Amara to create food that reflects the beauty and resilience of the area.
The result of such passionate people working from two sides of the same industry has been a range of stunning dishes that we truly believe can inspire people to change the way they think about food.

Community-supported agriculture (CSA; sometimes known as community-shared agriculture) is an alternative, locally based economic model of agriculture and food distribution. A CSA also refers to a particular network, or association of individuals, who have pledged to support one or more local farms, with growers and consumers sharing the risks and benefits of food production.
CSA members, or subscribers, pay at the onset of the growing season for a share of the anticipated harvest; once harvesting begins, they periodically receive shares of produce. In addition to produce, some CSA services may include additional farm products like honey, eggs, dairy, fruit, flowers and meat. Some CSAs provide for contributions of labor in lieu of a portion of subscription costs.
