Regional soiree a success

The Sow and Savor Soiree hosted by the Hamilton Pastoral and Agricultural Society last week was a resounding success.

The black-tie dinner brought together local farmers, producers and service providers to honour the produce of the local region.

The event, held in the Sheep Pavilion at the Hamilton Showgrounds showcased the finest local produce, highlighting the talent and dedication of the regions’ farmers, chefs and producers.

Working closely with Jordan Lanigan at The Speckled Frog, the team incorporated 15 local producers into a five course dinner.

Producers who supported the event included Grampians Olive Co, Casterton Distilling Co, Honest Eggs Co, Timboon Railway Shed Distillery, Seppelt Wines, Suffoir Wines, Lambpro, Grampians Food Co, Bochara Wines, Grange Garlic, Westerly Downs, Papers Scissors Rock Brew Co, Henty Estate and Glenelg Chocolates.

Throughout the evening, guests had the opportunity to engage with the producers behind the ingredients, gaining an insight into the journey from farm to table and the importance of supporting local agriculture.

Darren and Kylie Schurmann of Kingaroy Partnerships who supply to LambPro, were thrilled to have their own Hampshire Down lambs, included in the menu.

“Our Hampshire Downs lambs spend 80 days on grain, all 100% Lambpro genetics, specifically selected for high eating quality,” Darren said.

“We were absolutely thrilled with the presentation, flavour and quality of the dish, presented by The Speckled Frog.”

Lambpro supply their products to some of the best restaurants in the world.

Events Manager Emmelie Nijskens was thrilled with the event.

“We are absolutely stoked with the outcome of the event, we are very grateful to our sponsors, producers and guests who helped us get this one up and running,” she said.

“It’s great to have another event for the Hamilton region. We cannot wait to make it bigger and better in 2025!”

Live entertainment and lucky prizes added to the festive atmosphere, creating a memorable night of culinary exploration and local connections.

The Hamilton Pastoral and Agricultural Society extends its gratitude to all the sponsors, producers, chefs and guests who contributed to making Sow and Savor Soiree a tremendous success.
