The remaining land is used for crop rotation and grazing our two Jersey cows, Elka and Frangipani. We produce all the seedlings for the farm and a wide range of seasonal vegetable and herb seedlings for sale to the general public from our onsite production nursery.

The farm follows strict guidelines to ensure that all our produce is certified biodynamic with Australian Certified Organic (ACO). We do not use any pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or synthetic fertilisers. Our fields are picked daily to ensure that we have the freshest possible produce available in our onsite Farm Shop.

We grow a wide range of seasonal produce for sale in our Farm Shop with supplementary fresh produce, meat, dairy and groceries provided by other certified organic producers.
