At Mungalli Biodynamic 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 FARMERS

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. Biodynamic farming 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 and pasture. You will often spot wallabies, cassowaries, platypus and a diverse bird population and dingoes.

THE FARMHOUSE CAFE

The Mungalli Biodynamic cafe is the original farm house that the Watson brothers grew up in and is situated in the heart of our Biodynamic 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.

Converting to Biodynamics

Converting to biodynamics happened on our farm over 30 years ago. While we can now convert a farm over in 3 years, this has not always been the case. When we first converted over the home farm it took us ten years before we were happy with the results. In the first five years of converting to Biodynamics

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,

Testimonials

“So much to love about you! Your milk is the best in the world. It is so reassuring to buy products from you that are healthy and sustain the planet. You are local to us and so very few food miles are travelled. Your yoghurt are a treat but not bad for you. But the thing I love about you most is that when my son was 1 year old he spoke his very first word whilst eating your yoghurt. It was ‘more!’ “

Sally, Cairns

  • Who's been wondering about our ice-cream? 🙋‍♂️🙋‍♀️ We were all geared up to release our ice-cream this month as all of the pieces had finally fallen into place. Then the world was turned upside down.

Our ice-cream is still happening, we just thought we'd wait a little while to release it.

Thank you for your patience during such an interesting time! 💚

In the meantime, we will continue to experiment and perfect our recipe 🤗 Here's Polly working on the ice-cream base. This is the delicious thick custard that we then churn to make the ice-cream!

Did we mention it's going to be lactose free? 🤓
