Take part in an event that celebrates the richness and diversity of all that is grown and produced in this bite-sized district. The Horowhenua Taste Trail provides a unique opportunity to get behind the scenes, and sample delicious fresh produce, directly from the source.


The Horowhenua has a variety of passionate producers. At each stop on the trail you will be taken through a journey from the paddock to plate.

The 13 producers on the Trail grow and craft a variety of excellent food, drink and produce, and include Turk’s, Lewis Farms, I &G Silver Olive Oil, Bagrie Dairy Farm, The Baked Dane, Waikawa Fresh, The Ultimate Egg, Genoese Pesto, Thoroughbread Foods, Woodhaven Gardens, Soul Sisters Kombucha, Ōhau Wines and Ohau Gourmet Mushrooms.

Enjoy a paddock to plate adventure, see how the food is produced, then enjoy it in a gourmet form at many of the producer’s sites. Or fill up your Market Bag and take away fresh produce to enjoy at home.


If you are a passionate foodie, you can extend your Taste Trail experience and sign up for a series of Savour Events to wrap around your day.
