Daydreams: Three Blue Ducks set up farm…in Byron Bay
With a love of fresh seasonal produce, community and delicious food, the Three Blue Ducks team are set to join with farmer Will Cotterill in Byron Bay to create a restaurant within an old dairy called The Farm. We sat down and had a chat with co-owner Chris at the restaurant in Bronte about their plans...
“It’s really sustainable, growing it locally and making amazing food with all the produce. That has always been our dream project.” The set up at The Farm will include a cheese factory, a range of organic horticultural produce, farm-stay accommodation, as well as keeping its own pigs, cows, and chickens for organic eggs, along with the restaurant run by the team behind Sydney’s Three Blue Ducks. The restaurant will seat about 100 guests and will be built in an agricultural shed. Chris tells us that it will cater for everyone, with a relaxed atmosphere and a place where children can run around in the garden and pet the farm animals.
After breakfast we took a wander out the back to explore their beautiful produce garden. A hint of things to come for their plans up North...Up at the Byron farm there will be so much fresh food harvested that they will be able to provide fresh produce for locals as well.
