Run by Mark Brown and Kate Beveridge, Purple Pear Farm Education Centre and Biodynamic farm offers learning opportunities based on 20+ years of experience in teaching, farming, sustainability, permaculture, biodynamics and community building.
We run a productive 14-acre farm on the outskirts of Maitland.
At Purple Pear Farm, our life revolves around food – growing, selling, preparing, preserving and eating it.
Our goal is to show how permaculture, biodynamics and organic principles work equally well on apartment balconies, in backyards and on working farms like our own.
The farm is a working farm with facilities to cater for a group in a hands-on and supported learning environment.
Come and have a look at our affordable courses, and soon you too will be harvesting fresh vegetables, making yoghurt and cheese in your kitchen and recycling scraps into your fresh, sweet smelling compost heap.
Purple Pear Farm is the perfect place for children's birthday parties. Come and find out about parties that you and your children will be raving about for years.
We look forward to welcoming you on the farm soon.
