Farm food x 2

Recently we visited The Farm near Byron Bay. It is a working farm with a nursery, bakery, restaurant (Three Blue Ducks) and produce shop.

The hinterland of Northern New South Wales is beautiful. We drove from Bangalow towards Byron Bay through the gorgeous green hills.

The Farm is well set up and probably deserved a longer stay. It would be easy to spend a few hours there exploring.

We had a quick brunch and bought some delicious items from the produce shop as we wanted to go to Byron Bay for a swim before returning home.

Unfortunately it was blowing a gale at Bryon Bay and the beach was not inviting at all…pity.

A friend of ours has taken many years to develop the Wellington Point Farm in Brisbane. The Redland Bay area has a farming heritage. Its excellent red soil was perfect for farming but it is now residential with just about all of the farms gone. From the 1800s until the late 1900s fruit and vegetable growing was the dominant activity in the Redlands, which was known as “Brisbane’s Salad Bowl”.

My great uncle had a farm there when I was young. We loved to visit him and pick strawberries and anything  else we could find. We lived briefly in Ormiston where my father grew beans when he wasn’t being a carpenter. It is a pity to see the area given over to houses.

Wellington Point Farm is a working farm, growing strawberries, tomatoes and vegetable crops. These, along with other food items are sold through the Market Hall and Farmhouse Restaurant.

We had a delicious lunch in the restaurant.

It is excellent to see a tiny example of the area’s heritage being retained…and the food is great. We will return.

  2. So many great places to eat in from the Tweed to Byron which has deep food provenance. I must get to Wellington Point Farm. It looks amazing.

    • Our friend took many years to get this project happening. It is excellent and we wish him well.
