Seed is based on a belief that the produce of the region, the Clare Valley, is world-class. Wherever possible, they look to source ingredients from a mere stone’s throw away. Sometimes they reach a little further – to the Barossa, the Fleurieu, the Limestone Coast. Occasionally, if it’s truly special, ingredients are sourced internationally. But for Seed, the closer to home the better. Seed takes our simple, quality ingredients and presents them in pared-back form – from a daily deli menu through to the provisions found in their store, and the shared plates served in the nighttime bistro. Seed is for everyone, everyday – presenting elevated eating, drinking, and shopping experience across the week.

terroir logo preferred black

Terroir Auburn runs with a strict locavore philosophy. We use as much local produce as humanly possible, with only ingredients such as spices and some dairy products out sourced, as they are not produced in the Clare Valley.

A strong focus on seasonality and a weekly changing menu insures a contempary representation of seasonal Clare Valley produce. All ingredients are sourced from sustainable and humanely treated stocks.
