Short Property Description
We live about a three hours drive south of Byron Bay on the mid north coast near Coffs Harbour. We have lived on our beautiful farm over 35 years, growing & supplying organic/Bio-dynamic fruit & veg nationally and internationally. Our personal experiences have been wide in the organic industry & in tourism, teaching the benefits of organic & Bio-dynamic farming. We have been hosting WWOOFer’s and backpackers for over 30 years and have had hundreds come and stay and be part of our family and some have remained life long friends. We were chosen as 1 of 6 farms in Australia to represent Wwoofing by the Irish TV show ‘Wwoofail in Oz’ and were featured as one of the episodes. It was so much fun. You can see part of it on YouTube. Type in Kiwi Down Under Farm and it will come up or go to our website.
Organic/Biological methods we use
Our farm has been organic since we purchased it in 1981. The first Bio-dynamic Meeting on the mid north coast was held on our farm back in 1989 and from there we have helped spread the word of Bio-dynamics by example. We also use Permaculture practices in our design of the farm and have planted thousands of native trees plus grasses to create a balanced eco system while at the same time run a commercial farm/plantings.
