The Farm is located just outside of Byron, just off the highway. As the name suggests all of the produce is grown on site or locally sourced, We arrived and I wasn’t sure what to expect there is lots of open space and paddocks surrounding the eating areas as well as plenty of seating both indoor and outdoors. The menu took me by surprise offering a wide range from kiddies meals to more complex options.
After much deliberation I settled for the Ricotta Hot Cakes with natural yoghurt, fresh fruit and maple syrup $19. They arrived quickly and were delicious. I loved the miss-matched shapes and they were fluffy and sweet.
On the other side we had Avocado Toast which came with Nimibin Valley smooth cow cheese, poached eggs, farm herb salad and apple balsamic dressing on sourdough $23 which we added some cheeky bacon to for $5. The meal was huge and every element was delicious!
Offering an extensive tea range. We tried their coffee this morning which was strong almost acidic. I tried my first aero pressed coffee which was interesting, I couldn’t finish it but loved the different flavours.
We were a bit uncertain with the whole ordering process. Initially we sat at some benches in the sun which we were later told was a coffee section only. So moved to one of the large bench tables with umbrella shade. The venue is very big and equipped for large crowds which I imagine would be all utilized on the weekends. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately our coffees took quite a while arriving after our meals!
As mentioned before The Farm stands alone surrounded by its own fresh produce as well as plenty of parking. Three Blue Ducks is the restaurant located on site, the outdoor seating is a great idea for winter I don’t know how the seating would work on a balmy hot summers day.
The Verdict: Three Blue Ducks at The Farm was a nice change from the Brisbane suburban scene. The produce was fresh and it was a nice escape eating at the Farm. Overall 8/10.
