Autumn Harvest Festival, on Saturday 15 May is where you can meet some of Greater Sydney’s finest artisan producers and makers and be inspired by the food history of Rouse Hill Estate as you taste, browse and shop from a handpicked selection of products including jams and relishes, teas, cured meats, artisan bread, cheeses and more.
