Farm & Co Kingscliff has been an avocado farm for thirty years and was purchased in 2002 by the current owners Michele Stephens and her partner Ian Kettle. While they are not organically certified, their whole food and farming philosophy strictly follow only organic farming practices.

“AFTER A CAREER IN HEALTH, I REALISED THAT OUR FOUNDATION FOR GOOD HEALTH BEGINS IN OUR FARMING SYSTEMS- FROM THE SOIL UP.” 
– MICHELE

Michele learnt how to grow vegetables from her dad and nana. She grew up in Cooma where school friends taught her how to manage cattle, horses, sheep and pigs. Later training to become a Paediatric Nurse with a Bachelor of Health Science, whilst raising a family of four children. Concurrently studying Biological and Organic Farming. Michele is passionate about sustainable farm practices, healthy living and the importance of connecting with the land and our local environment.

Our Farm Stall is stocked predominantly with organically grown produce from our farm and what we don’t grow is sourced fresh from other suppliers, for your convenience.
