Local juice company hosts day on farm
Juice manufacturer Eastcoast Beverages will open their farm gates to the public for one day only at their factory in Kulnura on NSW’s Central Coast on Sunday, June 13, with a special Day on the Farm harvest festival featuring exclusive tours of the Eastcoast factory and farm, as well as food stalls that will showcase local Central Coast produce.
Eastcoast Beverages is a third-generation family business which has been producing Australian made and owned premium quality fresh fruit juices, fruit drinks and natural spring water since 1965. The family, together with the support of Central Coast Council, is proud to bring their annual Day on the Farm event back in 2021. The day is expected to draw crowds of up to 10,000 people from Sydney, Newcastle and the Central Coast.
Visitors on the day will have the opportunity to learn how Eastcoast brings its products to life, from the tree to the bottle. To highlight the family’s focus on sustainability and its commitment that nothing be wasted, there’ll be activations featuring the re-use of bottles, as well as blender bikes for attendees to blend their own smoothies using fresh fruit juice.
This family-friendly event will also offer a trailer tractor ride that will serve as an education tool to teach adults and kids alike all about fruit, the science behind it, what varieties of citrus grow on the Eastcoast site and how nothing is wasted. Ticket holders can even pick their own oranges. Kids can also bounce around in jumping castles, try their luck at laughing clowns and enjoy live entertainment, while adults can enjoy produce from local food stalls.
“One of the best things we can do as a company is to support the locals who support us,” says Eastcoast Managing Director, Samuel Lentini. “Our region doesn’t get as much attention as it should, so being able to hold this event – along with many other businesses in the area – is extremely important; to really show people what Kulnura has to offer.”
