Farm to Fork

If there’s one thing that Hawke’s Bay is well known for, it’s the incredible produce on our doorstep – after all, our nickname is ‘the fruit bowl of New Zealand!' However it's more than just fruit - it’s the fresh meat, vegetables, artisan goodies (plus more!), and the talented folk who tie it all together that makes Hawke's Bay's foodie scene so good.
