Our Story

Since purchasing the farm in 2016, we have focused on establishing riparian zones to assist in rehydrating the landscape, providing shelter for birds and other wildlife and increasing our biodiversity.

Millford Acres Farm uses regenerative agricultural principles.

Beef cattle are fattened using rotational grazing to improve pasture and we are grass fed accredited through TEYS. The farm also has a thriving organic micro market garden.

As both food lovers and successful catering company proprietors, we could see a gap in the Far South Coast for an authentic paddock to plate food experience.  In late 2020 we trialed ‘Cooking with Fire’ workshops in the repurposed machinery shed using our farm grown produce and other hyper locally grown meat and vegetables. These were a sellout success. Since then we have joined the Gourmet Coast Trail and renovated our derelict Hay Shed as a larger event space holding up to 100. guests. Most recently we have added on-farm accommodation which guests are able to use.

Other artisanal offerings include: Passata & Pasta making days, local brand - 'Gulaga Gold' Truffle Indulgence Long Lunch, Seafood Foraging and Cooking, Bee workshops, more Cooking with Fire workshops and art focused events such as life drawing, life painting and plaine drawing. All events are focused on a hyper-local produce and showcase the bounty grown and produced within the Bega Valley. Collector wines have been a great supporter of ours.
 

Ideas or requests are welcomed and we are open to collaborations

We use biodynamic farming principles and sustainable farming practices.

Guests learn the importance of:

how to keep a farm circular,

making sure produce gluts are repurposed and value- added where possible;

how farm waste goes into making compost for annual application to garden beds and more generally how to reduce the human footprint and translate that to city life.

A Short History

Millford Acres Farm was first settled over 150 years ago during the gold rush. Miners settled on 'Sandy Creek' which runs through the middle of the property. There was a large Chinese market garden setup on the creek flats that fed the fledgling community with remnant persimmon trees in evidence today reminding us of this time.
