Headwaters Kitchen Studio

Purpose-built 760 sq ft kitchen rental studio for photography, film and video with access to kitchen gardens and farm


Headwaters Food Studio is a garden to kitchen facility for delivering Recorded and Live Video cooking demonstrations.

Purpose-built means that we designed the kitchen to be used as a studio. There is room for equipment, people, food preparation and plenty of interior and exterior locations and ‘working farm’ situations for adding a bit of lifestyle to your content. Choose from a dining room, garden picnic table or long-table to stage your recipes or serve a crowd.

The Studio provides a comfortable environment for Chefs, Authors, Bloggers, Specialty Food Producers, etc. to produce lifestyle content. Our Food Studio extends beyond our kitchen garden to encompass acres of grazing pastures; crop fields; a forest; two ponds and a river. Gathering farm-fresh and foraged ingredients, preparing innovative recipes and serving a happy crowd is what the Headwaters Kitchen does every day!

The Studio is available as a bare kitchen set or ‘ready to record’ (live stream or recorded) multi camera set-up with lighting and audio. Our core video system can accept up to 8 video inputs (HDMI or SDI), live switch between multiple cameras and other video sources in real time, all with broadcast quality transitions, graphics and effects.
