Welcome

Near River is our organic market farm, a smallholding on the NSW Mid North Coast that we have created out of our passion for nutrient dense foods and ethical farming. This enables us to supply the highest quality produce to our community and champion the cause of local food. We grow a range of seasonal vegetables and fruits, produce superb pasture raised eggs, and have a range of medal winning preserves and condiments. Our pasture raised pork is the latest addition to our product range.

What is important to us

is for people to reconnect with the food they eat, how it is produced and who produces it, and the impact that the quality that that food has on their health, the health of society and the health of the environment. You can find us each Saturday at our stall at Orange Grove Organic Food Markets in Leichhardt from 8.00am until 1.00pm. Also visit us at The Farmacy farm shop at Near River every other Sunday from 2.00pm.
