Short Property Description
Levenvale is an original old dairy farm of the Bellingen district. We purchased it from a family who had owned it for 130 years over 3 generations. It was tired and needed some new life. We took on the project in June 2019, to renovate, reinvigorate, reinvent (from dairy to beef) and regenerate. It is organically certified (in conversion) and consists of 300 acres of lush green pasture, 200 acres of beautiful rainforest (& trails) surrounded by amazing mountain scenery (for coastal NSW terms). 5km to town, 20km to the beach, 30km to Coffs Harbour. We are a husband and wife and have 3 small children and travelling abroad has always been a big part of our lives. We hope by opening our home to WWOOFers we will make some friendships and get some help with the conversion project we have ahead of us!
Organic/Biological methods we use
We grow grass and believe in sustainable agriculture. Through multi species pasture cropping and systematically grazing we are on a mission to improve soil health and biodiversity, and therefore increasing the beef production. We use low stress stock handling techniques.
We hope to also establish vegetable gardens and fruit trees and plant native trees around the farm. We are keen to learn more about permaculture techniques and implement them on our property.
