Home Grown Organics
We believe that locally grown food is a key part of a healthy and sustainable community. Our passion & purpose is helping to educate and assist others towards eating and living a healthy lifestyle while ourselves thriving on the agrarian lifestyle of hard work, healthy eating, and purposeful living.
Grazed and Grown Farm
Our Farm is situated on the beautiful Comboyne Plateau on the Mid North Coast of NSW. Our passion is in farming the most nutrient dense food possible without the use of chemicals, herbicides or pesticides. To do this we nurture the land itself through regenerative practices.
Barbushco cultivates a diverse range of organically grown indigenous foods, bush tucker, fruits, herbs and spices.
Our aim is to farm with a deep respect to animals. The pasture raised hens, pigs and cattle live on the freshest pasture, in their natural environments, foraging, digging, scratching and grazing all day every day, full of sunshine and vitamin D.
