Destination - The Farm Byron Bay

Get Forked and Fly

I just can’t wait any longer.

You see when the front gate at The Farm in Byron Bay swung open a little more than six months ago I decided to wait for the dust to settle on the car park, so to speak, before highlighting the newcomer on my blog. I thought I would wait until the initial convoy of curious locals, destination day-trippers and Byron beach holidaymakers who were descending on The Farm in droves had slowed down somewhat – and left me a parking space up front – before taking a closer look at the project.

The best of Byron Bay: Foodies flocking to Northern Rivers region to feast at top eateries

The Australian

ASTRID McCormack often has a laugh about how taken aback people are when they arrive at her tiny restaurant, Fleet. Like Fleet, The Farm has redefined regional food tourism in this state, with hundreds of visitors arriving daily to spread out over the sprawling property, admiring the livestock on-site, in some cases picking the vegetables that spring from the ruddy earth here, and eating great food that pours forth from the kitchen like the tide.

Emma’s bliss down on The Farm

The Starfish

We’ve all visited the intersection of Overwhelmed Avenue and 
Stressed-Out Boulevard, and when I recently found myself at this hazardous crossing I began to plot my escape. But with scores of resort options available to one seeking refuge from the pressures of
Real Life, where to turn? A friend suggested I spend a few hours at a blissful haven called The Farm, in Byron Bay in far northern NSW.

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.

Holistic Living

I have been watching and waiting with great anticipation for the opening of The Farm on Ewingsdale road at Byron Bay for months now. On my regular trips down the road to good old Byron I’d find myself coming around the corner off the roundabout and immediately looking left to see what progress was made since my last drive past. Being a country girl at heart and growing up on farms, I couldn’t wait to get amongst it and find out what this incredible space was all about. Finally, I can happily introduce to you The Farm.

The Farm Byron Bay: Three Blue Ducks

Traveller

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.

The Farm, Byron Bay. This place opened in March, with the aim to “grow, feed and educate”. One of my favourite restaurants, Three Blue Ducks, is on site.

For as long as I can remember Byron Bay held a reputation as a mythical destination, a place of beauty and wonder. Then you get there, or try to get there but there is too much traffic, the streets are filled with dirty hippies and people trying to live an alternative lifestyle, man…. They too flock to the mythical beauty.
