Harvesting Feast 10.03.2019

Once again, the Stony River team and our supporters are inviting you to our annual Taranaki Harvest Feast in Okato.
Put away the tractor and gardening gloves for a day, grab the kids and treat yourself to a cold Taranaki brew or cider and feast in our Austrian beer garden with live music.
Restaurant, Vienna café, beer garden and Kaihihi Road will be all ours for the day to enjoy great local products in our market area, food, drinks and music.
Heimo will spoil us with a pig on a spit, BBQ corn, Spaetzle with home cured Speck (Austrian macaroni & cheese) and much more.

Welcome to Taranaki’s multi award winning ‘Stony River Boutique Hotel’.

Renate and Heimo Staudinger a professional couple originally from Austria who have hospitality experience from all over the world, offer authentic European hospitality, every Wednesday with live music and international/Austrian food with a modern Kiwi twist, using as much as possible locally sourced produce and cooking what ever is possible from scratch. “Running restaurants in USA, Norway, Iceland, Swizerland and of course Austria, combined with our own smoke house where we produce our own traditional Austrian speck (bacon) and German Kassler (smoked pork loin) as well as smoked fish, a large variety of German beer served in traditional stein and pop top bottles compliments the European/Austrian influenced food” A small but carefully picked wine list shows the best of and New Zealand (Taranaki’s own Mountain Road Pinot Noir and Sav), Australia, Argentina, France, Germany and Spain, including gold medal winning Lime Rock Gruener Veltliner and Spanish Codice Tempranillo. But most important we serve all our specialties with a smile!

We now present our own “Stony River Weiss-beer” brewed to the German purity law by “Forgotten 43” brewery in Stratford
