Southern Highlands life is all about moving in harmony with the seasons so we have created the Highland Harvest Feasts Series to celebrate the earth's cycles. From the Winter Solstice to Spring Equinox, each season offers us something unique and fresh.

Our feast events are authentic adventures that connect you with nature and as self-confessed contemporary country dwellers we bring to life seasonal customs. So expect some storytelling, music and a focus on the growing cycle in our menus. This means we can introduce a twist on past Pagan, Saxon, Nordic and Celtic banquets to craft events that celebrate Highland life.
