The business began operation circa 2001 with the current owners in charge since Sep 2006. The business has since grown year on year, transitioning from a basic lodging business to a multi-award winning farm stay experience.
The business is now very well- established with a great reputation and strong repeat custom. It features a hosted farm stay experience with limited competition. It caters for families with kids interested in participating in the animal care and farm upkeep as well as couples and groups interested in sustainability. The majority of the guests and visitors come from the Sydney and Newcastle regions, as well as from Hong Kong and Singapore.
A husband and wife team currently run the business with casual help from a contract gardener/farm hand. With the recent addition of the homestead to the letting pool, the annual turnover is projected to be in the range of $203k to $233k per annum. Though there is also potential for earning additional revenue from day visits and tours as well as from the farm produce and livestock sales.
