Food, wine, and market at 150km Feast

Horsham Agricultural Society’s two-day 150km Feast returns this weekend with an opportunity for patrons to sample the best in food, wine and discover small businesses. 

Society secretary and event organiser Andrea Cross said Saturday night’s Dinner Under the Stars, which included a five-course meal with matching wines for 150 people, had already sold out. 

“On the Sunday, we have a Food Truck and Wine Festival, and Growers and Makers Marketplace, which was introduced last year,” she said. 

Mrs Cross said admission to the Sunday market, which ran from noon until 7pm, was $15 and free for people younger than 18 years of age.

She said a variety of businesses within a 150-kilometre radius of Horsham would have an opportunity to showcase their wares across each day. 

“We are excited to be pairing with some agribusinesses such as The Pastured Promise. They are two young couples from near Stawell, who have a combined farm enterprise raising livestock for consumption. Zoe, who is one of the owners, is going to be speaking on the Saturday night and sharing her story,” Mrs Cross said. 

“We are pleased to have Jenny Strange of Gunyah Park Fresh Goat Meat, who has a farm near Jeparit. 

“She is going to be represented at the dinner and is bringing her goat meat to sell at market.”

Mrs Cross said the agricultural society would put profit from the event back into improvements at Horsham Showground. 

“The profit from this event will go towards a new stage,” she said.

“It will complement the events Horsham Agricultural Society manages, but also for our external hirers, it could lead to music festivals and other new outdoor entertainment events.”

Mrs Cross said ticketing information was available on the event’s website,
