'I want to be a Farmer'
Burnside Organic Farm
Jamie & Lara used to work in journalism and finance but decided, after having children, to change direction and establish Burnside Organic Farm. That was 18 years ago in 1997.
They have three young adult sons.
Lara & Jamie work full time on the property managing the farm and bungalows. They get seasonal help from their three sons and occasional Wwoofers (willing workers on organic farms).
The farm has been certified organic and biodynamic with ACO for over 14 years.
After 18 years of developing the property Lara & Jamie are self-sufficient in meat, eggs, vegetables, fruit, olive oil , honey and wine. Lara makes cheese from neighbour’s milk.
When relaxing they like to do anything that involves the natural outside environment or food and wine; surfing, stand up paddling, diving, mountain bike riding, walking, cooking and preserving food.
They enjoy sharing their special piece of Margaret River and can help you plan your perfect holiday.
