  • Description

    Description

    We are small family run 8 acre biodynamic hobby farm located in the brierfield valley. We have horses, sheep, goats, chickens and dogs. Our business is Farmstay accomodation,

    We grow seasonal fruit and vegetables and eggs for ourselves and our 3 guest houses on the farm and a few select cafes. We are 5 min from town and the Bellinger river. Bellingen is home to great cafes, live music and festivals. We are situated in a beautiful sub tropical town 15 min from the beach and 15 min from the mountains.

    We typically require help during the autumn (March) and spring (sept) for the changeover season for a max of one week to weed, compost, prune, and replant seedlings for the next season.
