Eat Naked!

While many people live in cities out of necessity, they still have a longing to reconnect with real food, farmers and the land. Our lives are fast, but food must be slow in order to nurture and heal us.

Sophie was looking for the ultimate ‘tree change’ when she found this fertile 400 acre river bound oasis in 2007. Ged was the local solar expert, electrician and landowner who lit up her life in more ways than one! We were married here in 2008 and Ben joined us later that year – born & bred on the land we love!

So we are ‘newbie’ farmers. Still finding our feet on our beautiful oasis. Still working out what to plant where, according to the different soil types, temperatures etc. But always striving to work in harmony with Mother Nature, to improve soil & biodiversity, listen to the land and leave every acre better than we found it.

We are learning every day . . . & we invite you on the journey with us!

We believe that food needs to be as close to nature as possible. Naked. Simple, fresh and chemical free. Hippocrates said ‘Let food be they medicine’ and we believe food should heal and nurture body, mind and soul.

We bring you what we grow, what we make, what we eat and use here – everything made with Love.

We don’t cloak our products in anything artificial or unnatural. The only things we dress are our salads . . . !

Don’t just take our word for it . . .

‘Your bacon purchased earlier this year is the best ever – it is just so delicious and my family loved it and took some back with them to sydney … well done and thank you’
Ann Johnson, Port Macquarie

‘Once you’ve had the Naked Farmers hommus and beetroot dips, you’ll struggle to enjoy shop bought. Beetroot is my absolute favourite, earthy and tangy, it’s beautiful as a straight dip, I also have it as a spread on my wraps. For a sweet treat, the lemon butter is divine. I eat it off the spoon (when no one is watching!) when I’m not putting it on toasted English muffins. Lastly and mostly, I adore the bacon. Great depth of flavour, with an excellent amount of fat that crisps up perfectly in the pan or on the barbecue. You have to try it to believe how good bacon can be.’
Nikki Rudge, Wauchope

‘Simply the best honey I have ever tasted – delicious!’
Melissa Moore, UK

‘We had your Honey & Garlic Salad dressing at Christmas and the whole family guzzled it in one day – amazing!’
James family, Port Macquarie

‘Moving from NZ, we had been looking for great preservative free sausages in Australia for years – so glad we found yours we can stop looking!’
Callagher Family, Harrington

Phoenix (who died on the 11th May last year) was the first dog I knew who loved a cat. He fell in love with Tom in Tamworth when first freed from quarantine. When Tom died from Tick complications there was the wonderful Mischa who Ged brought home from a Comboyne Dairy, and who was the greatest ratter but who left us all too soon. Then there was Misty who watched baby Ben play and also left too soon. Then Kitty, who outlived him and tries to make up for his absence by doing what he always used to do. They all adored him and would romp happily with him, part of which involved their heads in his mouth. Such are the joys of a working cocker's gentle mouth.

Now we have Goldie and little Magic and the games continue. Plus ca change (too much change!), mail c'est la meme chose . . .

Spent the weekend planting native trees - almost got my hundred in, just a few more to go! Bottlebrush (Calistemon) and Flame Trees (Brachychiton) anchor soil on banks and thrive along waterways. Will be planting many, many more this year and hope to see them flame before I die! Thanks so much to the volunteers at Landcare Australia for propagating thriving tube stock. This is what farmers do - care for country, help the environment, sequester carbon, look after waterways. Want to see what we do? Come along to the FARM GATE TOUR Hastings Landcare on the June long weekend! Meet the alpacas, cattle, sheep, wild horses, bees . . . check out our riverside oasis and find out what we do here. We look forward to meeting you then!

The seasons are turning, the earth and temperatures are cooling and human bodies need warm, nurturing, foods to fuel us in winter. Stews, roasts, sausages, baked potatoes, sweet potato and chilli soup, pumpkin & coconut soup, lentils etc. And as we cuddle up inside on these dark and cold nights, it is time to fill the freezer with foods for the winter, so we don't always have to cook. Our pork and beef sausages are seriously delicious, and a few frozen meals save you cooking when you just can't be bothered. Farm fresh meat and meals, made with Love. Just $10 for a pack of 6 sausages or $10 for a 500g vegetarian frozen meal for two. Buy now!

Many, many years ago a friend grieving the death of his best horse told me 'where you have live stock, you have dead stock'. We woke up one morning and the ewe I had only nicknamed 'the Queen' four days before when we wormed her, was laid out, dead, at the gate. She was fine at dusk the night before. What happened? We will never know. You know I love my sheep and had waited so long to start again with our black-faced suffolks after the decimation by the wild dogs years ago. I love wool, I love to sink my hands into their thick oily fleeces and imagine the garments to wrap myself in (actually suffolk fleeces are useless for spinning, but wonderful for felting and mixing with alpaca for pillows and doonas). I love their black faces and wise eyes and the glee I feel when they trust me enough to let me pet and pat them. I feel so frustrated and sad to have lost her. So bewildered (pulpy kidney? barber's pole? tick? snake?) But we become prosaic about death. She is taken to the cemetery and left for the crows, eagles, goannas, dingos, wild pigs etc. She becomes part of the fabric of this place she called home and we are left with just the memory and a hole that can never be filled by any other. No wonder farmers become so tough. Life is short and we never know which day is our last . . . ... See MoreSee Less
