welcome to acre, Where transparency & traceability are key.
Acre Eatery is a farm-to-table restaurant, part of the revitalised community hub Camperdown Commons, that was formerly the home of Camperdown Bowling Club. We aim to create a consciousness about the effect of everyday food choices. We achieve this by providing a sustainable menu focused on transparency, seasonality & traceability.
Aiming to limit our food travel miles to no more than 8 meters, we prioritize sustainable produce from the on-site four-season farm ran by Pocket City Farms. Together with other small to medium sized local farms, we aim to highlight the abundance of New South Wales in our menu's.
Root-to-tip & Nose-to-tail
Our proteins are sustainably sourced and are predominantly secondary cuts which are cooked slowly to release flavour. We aim to use produce and protein off-cuts in our cooking to further reduce our footprint, and our waste, and to maximise yield. We do all this while proudly presenting the tastiest and most delicious food we can. This can be a difficult balancing act, and with our determination and focus; we ensure we achieve this every time.
We are striving for a “closed loop” operation in the way we operate our eatery through initiatives such as composting with Pocket City Farms, recycling and reducing our water use. Our staff are educated on the goals of sustainable growing and consumption of food.
We translate this practical approach through the education of our staff. We engage with our customers in a very real and raw manner, just like our food, as you enjoy our fresh, flavoursome and sustainable ingredients.
