  • Description

    Description

    We are a family farm and run beef cattle and maintain a Bio Dynamic Macadamia Nut orchard. We are passionate about farming in a way that is in tune with nature as much as possible. We are blessed to live in a beautiful peaceful place and have a Town only 15 minutes drive away for schooling, sport and shops. We have 3 teenage children and welcome their friends to join in with our family whenever they like to organise it. There are times to the year were we are very busy harvesting and maintaining our orchard as well as developing our farm more. There is always more to be done than we can do by ourselves and we love having people to help us and learn about our farm and way of life while we learn about them. Our latest non-farming project is an entertainment area and Pizza oven. Still is progress if you would like to help!
