About The Farm

Buena Vista Farm is a small sustainable farm on the outskirts of Gerringong, just under 2 hours drive south of Sydney. Buena Vista is a family-owned and -run enterprise, with continual family ownership dating back to the 1850s. The farm is currently run by Fiona and Adam Walmsley, with Fiona’s parents also still living on the farm. It is now primarily a small goat dairy with cheeseroom, a commercial market garden, bee hives, cows, pigs, chickens, ducks, guinea fowl, kitchen garden, herb garden and an established coffee grove. The farm produces a range of wholefoods and ferments from their commercial kitchen which are sold weekly at local farmers markets along with their organic vegetables and eggs, and cooking classes are held on-farm most Saturdays, teaching sourdough bread baking, cheesemaking, fermentation and other traditional kitchen skills like preparing bone broths and preserving foods.
