Forage on the Foreshore
About Forage on the Foreshore
In November 2015 we grabbed an exciting opportunity to combine our love of foraging for food and our carers by opening Forage on the Foreshore in Port Campbell, with an emphasis on great, locally sourced produce.
It’s not unusual to find Sam and I foraging on our days off. We often forage in all types of weather for food or fresh flowers. I have many memories of collecting saffron mushrooms in the rain, climbing trees to reach the sweetest apples and stopping along the roadside on the way home from a trip away to collect bitter sweet plums in the summer heat.
The whole family is involved with the café. Sam is in charge of sourcing and preparing the food, I’m head barista and I also coordinate front of house. Our four children help in the kitchen and garden – when they’re not on the beach or at school and are dab hands at picking the herbs and fetching produce from the cool room.
We focus on using ingredients that are grown; produced or foraged locally on the Great Ocean Road and Hinterland. Supporting small local businesses where we can. You can find out more about where we source our produce here.
