Hunt and Gather the Island way.

As I drive along Mission Road on Norfolk Island I am spoilt for choice of eggs, feijoas, limes, pesto or chutney, straight from the farm, located in the honesty box sitting on the fence. 

It doesn't get any fresher than that! Hunter-gatherer culture is a type of subsistence lifestyle that relies on hunting animals, fishing, and foraging for wild vegetation and other nutrients like honey for food. 

This pretty much sums up our day to day lifestyle on Norfolk Island. 

Paddock to plate is a way of life here and has been for more than 200 years. 

Eating is seasonal and super fresh, with most produce eaten the day it is harvested. 

Our rich red volcanic soil combined with our mild climate and decent rainfall, allows for ease of growing seasonal vegetables and fruits. 

On any given day you may notice on the local community Facebook page what is available from many of our roadside honesty box stalls and shops selling local produce.

The Visitor Information Centre offers a map to enable you to visit these stalls. 

There is a sense of achievement when you can locate fresh mushrooms, locally made goats cheese or freshly caught trumpeter fish. 

Sometimes the word goes out between locals, and you may miss out when you finally get to the local shops, however no one is fussed as there will be more to choose from the next day.

Tea Pot Gardens and Music Valley are just a few of the names of our roadside stalls where you can find delightful fresh produce, marinated vegetables, condiments, and loads more.

Here on Norfolk we want to preserve our healthy environment to ensure a healthy diverse marine ecosystem and protect and preserve sustainable vegetation communities and habitats. 

                                        This is our way of life on Norfolk Island, and we welcome you to come and start foraging.

The whole Island is a Wellness Retreat
