Autumn 2018

We have now officially stepped into Autumn and although the change in season is not always immediately noticeable in sub-tropical Byron Shire, nature still gently signals us to start preparing for the winter months. We love the changes that the new season brings.

Summer 2017

Christmas is just days away and we are all feeling the joy and excitement of the season and the hope that it signifies. We are also feeling the warmth of Summer. Our growers are working early mornings and late afternoons to avoid the heat of the midday sun.

Spring 2017

Spring has sprung and the paddocks here at The Farm have started to show the first signs of the warmer weather. Little flower heads are beginning to push through the dry soil and we are contemplating the thought of a rain dance to help our exhausted overworked irrigation system.

Winter 2017

It’s officially winter, one of our favourite seasons here at The Farm. We love that the cool nights justify the lighting of our cosy fire pit. There’s nothing better than having a drink with colleagues on a Friday afternoon huddled in front of the warming flames at the end of the work week…

The Easter break and school holiday period was a busy time here at The Farm. A number of families chose to spend time at The Farm roaming the macadamia orchard, exploring the growing plots and enjoying the delicious food on offer. For the younger visitors we also held our annual Easter egg hunt and ran our highly popular kids’ workshops…

This month we celebrated 2 years of ‘Grow, Feed, Educate’ and the opening of the gates at The Farm. It was a great time for reflection on all The Farm community have achieved in this short time. We are proud of all that has been grown on our soils and eaten in the restaurant, not to mention the lives that have been touched by some of our community projects...

Over the last week Tom and myself took part in a Trek across Tasmania to raise money and awareness for Aussie farmers on behalf of the Farm to Fork initiative for Landcare Australia. This was the first of its kind for Landcare and collectively the group raised $15,000 that will go towards helping to fund sustainable farming initiatives. We visited a diverse range of farms growing a variety of produce from oysters, saffron and even using the whey from sheeps milk to make vodka. The underlying Aussie spirit of 'giving it a go' shone through…

As we near the end of November (where has this year gone?) the anticipation of Christmas is well and truly upon us. The hectic energy of festive season can bring out the worst and best in us all. It's wonderful if we can go back to the principle of giving at this time of year as this is really what it's all about. Being conscious of those in less fortunate positions, forgiving an enemy and finding ways to open your hearts over the holiday period…

Our intention with opening The Farm has always been to give back to a community and a place that we love and have enjoyed with our children over many years. In essence we have provided 80 acres of 'farmland' for locals and visitors to enjoy and utilise and a platform to explore and ponder our 'grow, feed, educate' and give back philosophy…

It's the winter of festivals here in Byron Bay and as our town returns to its sleepier vibe now the energy of Splendour has been and gone, we prepare for the Byron Writers Festival to be held just over a week away.

The recent storms and wet weather has certainly watered the soil and with the sunshine continues abundant growth. A few of our recently planted tree seedlings were washed away downstream in our newly generated area of Simpsons Creek, fortunately not many at all considering the ferocity of the rain. We allow nature to continue her cycle and we are grateful for the ups and downs...

The crisp mornings and evenings are showing us winter is on its way and many elements of nature start to contemplate hibernation and a sense of slowing down at this time of year. We are still ferreting around with gusto here at The Farm, collecting firewood for open fire evenings, changing menus to include bone broth soups and growing wintery vegetables to nourish and comfort the soul…
