Event description

Experience Horowhenua’s tastiest event - the Horowhenua Taste Trail - showcasing 16 Horowhenua specialist food producers

Join us for the 5th Horowhenua Taste Trail on Saturday 26 November 2022 10 am - 4 pm. We have a variety of ticket options to suit all appetites. We will not be selling any tickets on the day, so you need to pre-purchase if you don’t want to miss out!

The 16 producers are featured on the Trail across seven sites. These producers grow and craft a variety of excellent food, drink and produce, and include: Turk’s Free Range Poulty, Lewis Farms, Woodhaven Gardens, Genoese Foods, Bagrie Dairy Farm, Heights Farms, The NZ Egg Group, Thoroughbread Foods, Ohau Gourmet Mushrooms, The Baked Dane, Potter Brothers, Emoyeni, Elemental Cider, Shirley's Strawberries, Waikōkopu Grove & Orchard and Hemp Connect.

​The Taste Trail is a unique experience where producers open their doors and provide you with an opportunity to experience the paddock-to-plate journey, to see how your food is produced, and then enjoy it directly at its source.  A foodie's dream, with top-notch catering providers partnering with producers to serve the freshest, finest local produce through five signature dishes - the Horowhenua Taster Plates. 

Along the way, you’ll have a chance to purchase other tasty treats and stock up on fresh produce to take home with you.
