Frida’s Field is a 120-acre regenerative farm and restaurant located in the picturesque hamlet of Nashua, just 10 minutes from Bangalow in the Byron Bay Hinterland. Since launching in September 2020, their three set menu lunch services per week have cemented their reputation for distinctive contemporary country cuisine which is seasonal, produce-driven and hyper-local. Now, Frida’s Field is expanding its offering with a Summer Sundowners sitting on Saturday afternoons from 4pm starting November 11th.
Set up al fresco on the venue’s expansive lawns, guests will enjoy casual snacks and drinks while watching the sun set over the lush pastures, orchard-lined hills and newly-planted 500-tree rainforest regeneration project. Think Ploughman’s Plates with house-made terrines, pickles, chutneys, locally-made cheeses and vegetable crudités. Plus a selection of tartines (open-faced sourdough sandwiches) – including Grilled beef with Cafe de Paris butter; Fish rillette with farm pickles; or Grilled zucchini and ricotta.
Curated by Scottish born and trained chef Alastair Waddell (previously Harvest Newrybar), the evolving snacks menu will follow a similar ethos to their signature lunches with seasonal produce sourced directly from the on-site market garden, food forest orchard, and, when available, herd of holistically-reared Angus-Wagyu beef cattle. Local dairy products and additional produce is sourced via weekly trips to the Byron Bay Farmers Market.
Cheers the spectacular golden hour light, with a range of cocktails comprising local spirits and house-made syrups using Frida’s grown ingredients like lemon myrtle, elderflower, and fresh herbs. Local beers and minimal-intervention wines are also on offer.
Co-founder, Jeanie Wylie, explains – “those few hours around sunset are just the most magical time of day at Frida’s Field. The venue faces North-West, which is the perfect orientation to see the sun setting and capture that incredible golden hour light which makes all the trees and fields sparkle. Our long lunches will always be our signature experience where Chef Ally’s talent absolutely shines, but we can’t wait to welcome people onto the terrace to enjoy a casual sundowner.”
Immersed in the beauty of nature with views that roll on forever, Summer Sundowners at Frida’s Field showcase the taste of the Northern Rivers at this bountiful time of the year and foster a relaxed and festive atmosphere, as people start to unwind for Christmas and the summer holidays. Bookings are encouraged, but walk-ins welcome.
