Birregurra is where Simon and Kara Stewart first kissed, a sweet dash of trivia
which, like every taste, smell, sight and touch at Yield, swells with a deeper
The Stewarts and their children – Scarlett, Ezra and Bobby – live where the couple
grew up, in Colac. Opening Yield in the Spring of 2018 has given them a cherished
platform to extend their home into their workplace. In look, feel and vibe – and in the
food they invite people to share as if they’re friends who’ve dropped by and been
welcomed with a beautiful meal – Yield is more than the realisation of a dream. It’s a
celebration of a way of life.
Connection drives Simon and Kara. Their restaurant embodies their belief that dining
is an experience best shared with loved ones. The menu is underpinned by
vegetables grown organically in local paddocks, on site in Birregurra, or in Kara and
Simon’s back yard.
Connecting guests with their community is their vision. It’s about building a stronger
community by linking arms with farmers, makers and producers.
Yield is commitment to minimising waste. The share plate style menu changes daily
and with the seasons, made up of what is available from local farmers and growers.
Seasons are prolonged by pickling and fermenting, and the liquor menu is sourced
from small Victorian producers.
At Yield, you don’t get pretence or frills, purely food prepared with heart and soul.
You’ll leave with a deeper understanding of where it came from, of our responsibility
to care, and with a connection that endures.
