taste • real From the Ground Up is the new branding initiative that supports our local food economy by offering authentic taste • real farm, food and drink experiences for everyone to enjoy. We are passionate about the way local food is grown, prepared, presented and enjoyed, and how real it tastes!

This exciting new strategy has been developed with stakeholder engagement over the last year and is built upon the many successes of promoting local food that have taken place across the region. The new brand helps identify locally grown food for both residents and visitors and builds prosperity for our region.
