What attendees are saying about TAFW

I brought my parents along as well and they were so happy with the day, you can't always make that happen for the older generation because they can't always find unique things like that for them as they have no idea of social media. Thank you and well done!

Really beautiful experiences .. the venues, vistas, people, ethos, produce and delivery were incredible. Great job Tweed !!

A fabulous tour of the farm. Ian was so informative and passionate. The food was lovely. Well done to all involved!

It was a great tour, delicious food & great company. We had a lovely time.

Love the Potagers concept of promoting other local business. Superb venue with a wonderful vibe and great food.

The boat tour is a great way to look at the Tweed and quite different from the road. As for the bush tucker walk, the information provided was captivating.

It was a great experience. I haven't heard of anything similar being done in the region which is great.

I went with my 12year-old son and 72year-old father-in-law and we all thoroughly enjoyed the day.

The event exceeded my expectations. The chef was extremely knowledgeable. The food that was presented was fantastic. The table was so beautifully set and his enthusiasm and knowledge was terrific. I will be telling others about this wonderful experience.

Keep them going, it is a great way to discover what is in the area. The people of the Tweed take a lot for-granted and we need to support these fabulous local businesses.

A really well put together event that complimented each other and was a relaxed way to experience local producers.
