Caring About Sustainability

We use nothing but the best quality ingredients to ensure you and your guests enjoy delicious food. By sourcing everything from local, sustainable farms means you will know exactly how and where your food comes from, which is important to us. And by eliminating single-use plastics, using recyclable plates, cutlery and napkins gives you the reassurance that we are looking after our rural environment. 

Where it all began…

Rural Roasts began in 2018, founded by Josh and Emma on a quest to transform local, sustainable produce into excellent tasting food. Bringing enthusiasm and a passion for food  into the hog roast and mobile catering industry. Their mission is to take the high quality produce from the farm and offer delicious food direct to your plate with the experience to match.
