The Farm

A relaxed atmosphere with the feel of a home paddock on a country property.

An area for local fresh food shopping with features that include:

  • a hanging hydroponic herb and vegetable garden, a café, nursery and florist,
  • an orchard for families to relax and enjoy themselves under fruit trees,
  • a native garden to increase the amount of native plants on the property and provide privacy to our direct neighbours

Three low-rise buildings on the site – the conservatory, the homestead and the barn.

A basement for customer parking – including customers from other shops on Eastern Road, with all loading, recycling rooms and plant and equipment located below ground.
