Farm & Co, Cudgen

When you first arrive at Farm & Co, you’re welcomed by a cute little market building bursting with fresh produce and flowers. Stop by here first to pay your per person entry fee to the farm ($7 at the door, $6 online) and then make your way through the farm gate and out to the fields! This place is a kids paradise. They can run as far as their little legs can take them, yet parents can be at ease knowing that with the way the fields are set up, you have a great line of sight across the farm and it will take a lot for them to get away from you! You can wander through the veggie fields, swing on a hammock under the macadamia trees and say hello to the Rescue pigs Hank and Pepe. See the beautiful free range chickens living their best life out of cages, and see how they grow fresh organic produce and sunflowers.

But the main reason most visit Farm & Co is to explore the sunflower fields and get snap happy with their cameras! The bright yellow of the flowers is really a sight to behold, and children and adults alike are sure to come away grinning, the happiness is infectious! If you would like to take some flowers home with you, you can cut your own for $4 a stem.

After spending time exploring, you’re bound to have worked up an appetite! The Farm Store serves coffee, delicious cakes and savoury eats, which you can take with you and walk around the farm, or set up a picnic blanket. For a more substantial meal, The Farm & Co Restaurant has an extensive menu and bookings are recommended.
