Sydney Weekender visits The Farm
The Dharma Door
Our local hills are brimming with creative, interesting folk. Emma Lane – co-founder of The Farm Byron Bay – is happily one of them. Together with her husband Tom, Emma has helped to create a thriving community of growers, producers, eateries and educators at their idyllic Ewingsdale location.
Future little farmers at The Farm Byron Bay
Byron Bay has a farm eieio. And on that farm they have animals, farm tours, restaurants, yoga and more! The Farm Byron Bay is about getting back to traditional ways of growing food. Say hello to their animals like chickens and pigs or go for a stroll past paddocks. You might recognise their restaurant from their Sydney sister, it’s Three Blue Ducks. They’re plating up meals like sesame crusted kingfish with chinese broccoli and caramelised chilli. You can also learn to make bread or grow flowers plus join a Milkwood Permaculture course. The Farm Byron Bay is a beautiful spot to meditate and you can do that with Yoga at The Farm.
Fork in the Field has hatched a Children’s Farm to Fork Holiday at The Farm in Byron Bay during the Easter holidays. The program takes children aged 5–11 on a fork journey, joining the dots between people, planet and plate. The workshops are designed to appeal to families of visitors and locals wishing to provide their children with practical life-cooking skills and want them to experience where food comes from and how they can be empowered with their choices.
