Harvest Kitchen


Harvest Kitchen is located at Compass Farm and provides a wide range of food production learning opportunities for numerous Trainees on any given day, including food preparation, cooking and packaging skills.

This commercial style kitchen has two functions. One is to provide home-cooked meals to Compass Farm Trainees and Staff on a daily basis. A team of Trainees work with our dedicated Harvest Kitchen support trainer to help to keep our Farm crew fueled and energized, and also support catering for any events held at Compass Farm.


Our second team of Trainees works with our Enterprise Lead to produce a wide range of delicious condiments including chutneys, jams, pickles, sauces and flavoured salts, made from produce at the Farm and from other local suppliers.

These condiments are sold through various retail outlets, including our own Garden Café and Wabi Sabi Creations. Our own homegrown Compass Honey is also sold across White’s IGA stores on the Sunshine Coast.

For many of our Trainees, working in Harvest Kitchen in the supported environment of the Farm is an import training ground and stepping stone into one of our customer-facing social enterprise Cafes – Garden Café and Connections Café.


Cricks Sunshine Coast has been one of Compass’ major corporate sponsors for a number of years. We have worked together to come up with many novel ways to collaborate, where we can provide shared value – and our partnership with Harvest Kitchen is just one of these great ideas!

Through an innovative arrangement, Harvest Kitchen produces an average of 1,200 jams and chutneys every month, which are packaged up into beautiful hampers and distributed across Cricks Sunshine Coast dealerships – where every new car that is purchased receives this Compass gift pack of homemade goodies produced by our Trainees!
