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.

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.

Converting to Biodynamics

We have now been practising biodynamics for 33 years. 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. For the first five years we took the purists' approach, which

How our dream evolved

Imagine a long-haired, bearded hippy, confused about his place in the world, knowing only his love of the land and dairy farming. Imagine this young man, with his head full of spirituality, crystals, and organic farming methods returning home onto the family farm and trying to farm conventionally like his parents and neighbours. Imagine him

What is Equity Crowdfunding?

We’ve been throwing the words  “equity crowdfunding” around quite a bit recently. But if you are like us when we first heard the term, then you’re probably thinking, what does it actually mean? Equity crowdfunding is a new way for everyday humans to invest in a business or brand they love. It has been
