The Farm Byron Bay

The freshest paddock to plate you'll ever get.

Only ten minutes from Byron Bay is a farm-come-restaurant stepping up the food game. By joining forces, The Farm and the Three Blue Ducks restaurant deliver paddock-to-plate dishes all in one charming location.

Around the farm, you'll find chooks (the Australian term for chickens) strutting and clucking, pigs splashing about in muddy puddles in an attempt to stay cool and cows who would beat anybody in a staring competition. There is a guided tour of the farm every Saturday at 10am, but not to worry if you can't get there for then as you are free to roams the grounds on your own.

The Three Blue Ducks is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and you'll have a tough time deciding which one to dine at. For breakfast, the 'Farm Bowl' holds all of the good stuff including roasted pumpkin, house ferments, quinoa toast, a poached egg and a radish salad. Some of the lunch options include Byron Bay halloumi, chilli mussels and pork gado gado. And for dinner, try some Kangaroo tartare, Southern Tablelands Lamb or Borrowdale Pork Belly. 

The farm doesn't stop there, you can even take some of it home with you - well, the produce anyway. Pick up fresh soudough loaves and pastries at the Bread Social or check out the Produce Store for a variety of veggies, free range eggs and a selection of meats.

Explore, eat and take it home at The Farm.

Stone & Wood Brewery Tour

Brewery tour of Australia's most refreshing craft beer.

Stone & Wood Brewing Company produce some of the most refreshing beer we've ever tasted, and we say that with no hesitation. Brad, Jamie and Ross, the guys behind this great beer, grew tired of the corporate beer world and decided to take brewing back to basics. Using water from the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, their aim was to create a refreshing beer that was your go-to when relaxing after a day of surfing, watching a gig or hanging out with friends.

So, in 2008, Stone & Wood was born. The heart of Stone & Wood lies in its original brewery in Byron Bay. Building the site here was a conscious decision by the founders. The Stone & Wood boys envisioned a business that would support the people who support them and in a small community like Byron Bay, that's what it's all about. 'Ingrained' became their official community-focused initiative providing support to local charities who are involved in sustaining the local area, both socially and environmentally.

The Stone & Wood Brewery Tour runs for about an hour and gives an interesting insight into the history, philosophy and brewing process of this delicious beer. For just $12, you receive a beer on arrival, a tour of where the magic happens, and a tasting paddle of all five beers (Pacific Ale, Green Coast Lager, Garden Ale, Jasper Ale, and Cloud Catcher) to finish. This brewery is also where a lot of experimental and seasonal brews are made, so be sure to check if any are on tap when you go.

In the words of Stone & Wood, 'take things slowly and keep it simple'.
