Our farms are more than just cows and pasture. We have planted rainforest and created wetlands to cultivate a living farm organism.  Our farms are full of wallabies, cassowaries and a diverse bird population and even dingoes, exactly as a biodynamic farm should be.

What We Care About Most

Both Dan and I have families and we want to know that the only footprints we leave are the muddy ones of our children.

OUR FARMS

Although we pioneered Biodynamic farming in our region there are now two other families on the Atherton tablelands who care about their soil and animals as much we do!

Like Organic farmers, we use no artificial fertilisers, pesticides, antibiotics or growth hormones. Biodynamics however takes organic farming a step further. It focuses on the farm as a living ecosystem that is a part of the environment rather than separate from it. We look at soil health, vegetation and livestock health holistically and focus on enhancing soil fertility. Biodynamic practices and preparations breathe life, energy and strength into the land, which in turn produces food that is rich in nutrients.

Our Animals

Mungalli 100 years ago was thick rainforest and we have consciously allowed 30% of our farms to revert back to forest. It means that our farms are more than just cows, chickens and pasture. You will often spot wallabies, cassowaries, platypus and a diverse bird population as well as dingoes and wild pigs.

THE FARMHOUSE CAFE

Our cafe is the original farm house that the Watson brothers grew up in and is situated in the heart of our farm. Our verandah over looks the Johnston River Gorge and world heritage rainforest. Behind that, Mt Bartle Frere, Queensland’s highest mountain, creates a dramatic backdrop for visitors. The production area adjoins the café, and strategically placed viewing windows allow guests a glimpse into our creative heart.

What is Biodynamics?

I often find myself struggling with the concept of Biodynamics. I want a solid definition that I can grasp with both hands. How exactly does it work? Planting with the moon cycle, burying cow horns, and homeopathy via against the part of me that went through the education system that needs scientific evidence to back everything up. And yet,

  • Our paddocks have been pretty dry for awhile now! The skies have been taunting us with white fluffy clouds but yesterday the rain finally hit! 🥳
With more rain means more feed for the cows and more milk for us to make things like our long awaited butter and ghee! 
As a biodynamic farm we can't put fertilisers on our paddocks to make the grass grow and we cant  supplement our cows diet with cotton seed (GMO) or non-organic grain. The drought has made sourcing organic grain tough so we are really happy to see the rain! 
But while the farmers are happy about the rain it's probably the frogs that sound the happiest of all - you can hear them in every drain pipe we walk past! 🐸
