The 2018 Mornington Peninsula Food Forum, held at the Balnarring Town Hall in late April, was a great success with 140 new and existing producers, restaurateurs, food retailers and council representatives coming together to discuss key issues and opportunities for food production on the Mornington Peninsula.

Emma and Tom Lane, the owners of The Farm at Byron Bay, discussed why they believed tourists were so important to agriculture and how to maintain the integrity of tourist hot spots, while a rich discussion MC’d by Richard Cornish on how businesses can better distribute produce across the Peninsula plus tourism insights from some of the Peninsula’s agritourism royalty such as Red Hill Cherries and Pure Peninsula Honey entertained and enthralled attendees.

Guest speaker Emma Germano from I Love Farms entertained the Peninsula produce-mad crowd with a fast-paced and honest talk on the challenges her family faced to keep their farm profitable after a feast of produce provided by Mr Hall Catering. 

Jenny McAuley, of Red Hill Truffles, said the forum was a great opportunity to learn more about what was going on in the Peninsula food economy. “It was great to get off farm and connect with some producers I’d never met before,” Jenny said. “I learnt a lot.”

Positive feedback was flowing around the room and there were plenty of suggestions for future topics of interest.

Looks like the Mornington Peninsula Food Forum may be a permanent part of the foodie landscape here on the Peninsula. Watch this space.
