The monthly farm tour looks at permaculture, organic growing, biodynamics, community supported agriculture, farm animals, sustainable energy, holistic farm management, water management, fruit and nut trees, mandala gardening and more.
We do this with emphasis on aspects most interesting to the group on the day. From 10am to 12 noon.
Tours can still go ahead if it is raining. Please ensure you have appropriate outdoors clothing; gumboots and raincoats for wet weather and closed toe shoes, sunscreen and sun hats for hot weather.
At Purple Pear Farm, a productive 14 acre farm on the outskirts of Maitland, our life revolves around food – growing, selling, preparing, preserving and eating it. We run a sustainable farm and aim to show how permaculture, biodynamics and organic principles work equally well on apartment balconies, in backyards and on working farms like our own.
