A truly local food experience is the essence of The Agrarian Kitchen. Our set menu sources ingredients from the land around us, whether it’s our own garden, the community garden across the road or a network of local gardeners, producers, farmers and fishermen.
In the light bathed dining room, Restaurant Manager Laura Cuthbert leads the team of enthusiastic knowledgeable staff to deliver a smooth, informative and unpretentious experience to our guests.
The vision is to create a space where local, seasonal produce is celebrated. Where the diner experiences a true sense of place through the food they eat. Where the ingredients speak for themselves with little adornment. At the core of our offering we hope the integrity of the ingredients speak for themselves.
The kiosk is The Agrarian Kitchen’s casual outdoor offering. The vibe on the front lawn is picnic tables, umbrellas and rugs, with dogs and children in equal measure soaking up the sunshine. Alternatively, take it away to enjoy at a picnic spot within the beautiful Derwent Valley.
The menu changes weekly, making the most of our own garden produce and that of Tasmanian producers. The selection of pastries, cakes, sandwiches, salads and cheese, all made daily in house. Enjoy with a cocktail; glass or bottle of local wine, beer, cider or a hot beverage.
Classes are at the core of The Agrarian Kitchen, first beginning in 2008 on our farm in Lachlan. They are first and foremost an experience that incorporates our garden in some way, shape or form, whether simply a tour or harvesting for class use. Our new garden is one-acre in size and is just metres from our building, nestled behind protective walls and is at the heart of our operation. Designed as a space not only to grow food but also to teach others to do the same. Our classes are always immersive, highlighting the beneficial nature of the human connection to nature.
