Harnessing a pure affinity with nature, Campbell and Rachel Rowe’s incredible private dining and wedding banquets are a celebration of nature, community, and togetherness. Recently expanding their offering to include wedding and event planning and styling, Forage and Graze is the product of self-proclaimed modern day foragers, who love nothing more than creating epic events punctuated by damn good food.
Set in Byron Bay’s Hinterland region, not only will Forage and Graze design and prepare delicious handcrafted menus at a venue or location of your choosing, they’ll also work closely with you in the lead up to your wedding or event. Forage and Graze ensure all dishes chosen are perfectly suited to your preferences and are created from only the very freshest seasonal produce. Campbell and Rachel source most of their ingredients from their own gardens, and if not, from surrounding farms, fields and oceans – welcoming you into their family with open arms.

Exclusively hosting just ten weddings or private dinners each year, the personable touches, coordination and attention to detail that Forage and Graze apply to their intimate affairs are nothing short of excellent. True to their ethos of quality over quantity, Forage and Graze’s small-scale events are designed in such a fashion so that each individual festivity receives their full love, attention, and care.
Stemming from a rich history of creativity, passion, culinary greatness and event management, Forage and Graze combine a vast skill set to encompass the entire package.
Campbell’s background working as a chef is evident in every plating. Having studied and worked in organic production horticulture, his farm to fork style to cooking gives a rustic edge to innovative dishes. Free-range eggs are sourced straight from their farm while freshly harvested fruits, vegetables, and herbs are handpicked from rolling gardens.
Described as ‘grazing banquets,’ meals are designed to give homely warmth and add a welcoming comfort to friendly settings. Shared feasts and platters scattered down long tables, chatter amongst friends sipping cocktails – Forage and Graze form a close relationship with you to create your ideal event.
