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.

Our Blog

OUR BLOGS ARE WRITTEN BY FARMER ROB, THE FAMILY, AND ANYONE ELSE AT MUNGALLI WHO HAS SOMETHING TO SAY.

A tough decision on our Bio-eggs

Over the last few months, our hens have been at the forefront of our minds. As most of you know we are situated in the Wet Tropics of North Queensland just outside of a town called Millaa Millaa, which gets around 3500 mm of rain a year, and about 80 days of sunshine. This is perfect for cows

  • With the weather so hot we've been searching for ways to stay cool! 🥵 We got this tip from a rather crafty customer! ..
Does anyone else turn our 200g yoghurts into icey-poles?
..
Such a refreshing snack - perfect for kids after school!
..
Just peel off the lid, give them a stir, pop in a paddlepop stick and place them into your freezer for a few hours! ..
When you are ready to eat them, run the container under warm water for a few seconds and they pop right out! ..
We saved the containers and spooned some of our Greek yoghurt into the cups the second time! So tasty! 🤤
