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

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror
The wide brown land for me!

(thank you Dorothy McKellar)

After the drought comes the flood . . . the boys had a great weekend in town as they couldn't get home and I spent the weekend sprucing up furniture, walls, floor etc. Enough #rain now but still it continues!

I got some tractor time on friday and tested out the newly fixed 4WD on the tractor (hallelujah!) on the banks above the main house flat. The cows had turned up to say hello and even the wild horses were relaxed and lying down as I crashed and bashed. That's what we like - happy, curious, friendly and fear free animals . . .

On Wednesday I got home from Port and there was no water. Not a drop. Someone left the hose on. (That would be me!) Ged is away and knowing we had rain coming he put the pump away so I hocked it onto the trolley and wheeled it down to the river (why does it spill fuel - checked the lid 3 times?) Then wrestled the 5 inch agri poly pipe onto the bottom inlet and managed to get it firmly attached (good thing I am going to the Gym these days!)

But where was the inlet pipe from the river? On the far side of the flooding river, ripped away by the water. Didn't fancy swimming for it so got the kayak and paddled upriver against the flood (good thing I am on the rowing machine at the gym too!) - it was a real battle but finally I got to the pipe. I thought that was the hard bit - ha ha!

Grabbed the pipe, of course filled with water and over 10 metres long and jammed it between my legs and then tried to paddle across the rip to the other side of the (flooding) river. I paddled so hard for so long and the rip and the water filled pipe kept hauling me back, eventually I got close enough to the bank to throw myself out, keeping hold of the pipe, kayak and paddle and haul them all to the bank. Stowed the kayak and paddle while keeping hold of the pipe which was bucking and jumping with the power of the river like an alligator . . . now to get the bloody thing on. So hard. Poly pipes are rigid and they bend away from the pump inlets so they are always hard to get on, even at the best of times and this was definitely NOT the best of times!

I wrestled that thing for over half an hour as the light dimmed. I was using all my strength to stop the river hauling it away again and I couldn't sit on the pump to keep it still. I could get it in without the rubber seal but not with the essential seal on it. Long story short, had to give up and go without! Luckily the rainwater tank was full so put a hose on it and very slowly filled the bath up so we have water this week but most definitely not running or hot! Will be very glad when Ged McCarthy gets back tonight so we can have showers tomorrow!

The joys of life on the land . . .

Traci Wilson-BrownTop effort Sophie! Pumps can be so frustrating, pity you didn't have a few WWOOFers to help you! You should feel very proud of your super woman effort though, it sounds like it was very much a 2 person job! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

We are dancing for joy at the rain and the forecast is looking great for more! Had a lovely day on the slasher last weekend, getting rid of the weeds so the grass can leap out of the ground so we can go into winter with feed this year (please God!) ... See MoreSee Less

In case you are wondering how Petal (Daisy's calf) and Damson (she of the windswept legs) are getting on, here they are, hanging out together in the shade in Sandy's paddock. They are the best of friends and as you can see Petal is growing up! ... See MoreSee Less
