At Foodlosophy, we're 'More than just food'. We are a not for profit organisation serving food mindfully and with purpose. Connecting to our community through food, our mission is to foster a deeper and more passionate food culture. We create our menus with the seasons and only use the freshest sustainable produce from friends and farmers within 100km of our gate.
Foodlosophy is an environmentally conscious restaurant, dedicated to regenerating our land for the next generation. Our next goal is to establish our community kitchen garden right here at the colony to truly complete our paddock to plate menu and further close our food loop. At least 25% of the produce grown will go to our restaurant, with the remaining amount being returned to our community in various ways.
