Nestled in a valley our picturesque farm has become an international beacon for modelling the alliance between sustainable, traditional growing principles and modern innovations. As a thriving bio-intensive market garden and restoration grazing farm, we focus on growing + locally direct marketing our own produce and regenerating pasture diversity with stock management .
We teach these principles through highly interactive on-farm activities based around our agrarian & market garden production cycles.
