A community of growers and producers share this photogenic, 32-hectare green oasis just outside Byron, along with the Three Blue Ducks restaurant, a produce store, a bakery, an ice-creamery and a florist. The passionate dedication to traditional and sustainable practices here is both a working ethos and an educational mission. Pick up a self-guided-tour map and roam the veggie plots and cattle-and-pig-dotted fields. One-hour guided tours run at 9am Friday to Sunday during summer, and horseback tours happen at 7am Saturdays ($65).
For school-holiday programs (mini farmers, bee workshops etc), check the Kids Activities section of the website. The Farm is about a 15-minute drive from Byron Bay centre.
