A unique Byron Bay farming initiative combines culinary flair with country fare. The Farm is possibly the most exciting venture to hit New South Wales’ most exciting town in more than a decade, maybe two. The 34-hectare community farm, complete with the far north coast’s best new restaurant, is located just a few metres from the busy main road into Byron Bay. In the 34 years since my family first moved to this hippie haven, I’ve never seen anything quite so … well … hippie. And it all began with a missing little girl and the dad who found her; the father who could never quite leave his childhood years behind.
