Near River is our farm on the NSW mid north coast inland from Port Macquarie, where we grow ethical pasture raised heritage pork and a range of seasonal field grown vegetables. We believe it is important for people to connect with the food they eat, and know the story about how it is produced, and to also be aware of the impact that the quality that the food you eat has on your health, the health of society and the health of the environment.
You can find us at the Pyrmont Growers Market on the fourth Saturday of each month, and the Bondi Farmers Market on the first and third Saturday. Alternatively, jump into our online shop and place an order which can either be delivered to your door or collected from our market stalls. Lastly, you are welcome here at the farm on Sundays, though call ahead to ensure we are around. Throughout the year we hold a number of unique farm events: Meals in the Fields and Breakfast in the Beds are pop-up dining experiences, while the monthly Sundays at Near River are more casual affairs. These enable you to come and enjoy Near River, perhaps participate in some farming activities, and see where and how your food is grown.
We’re located in the pristine Hastings hinterland 45kms inland from Port Macquarie with a sealed road to the farm gate. We are here most Sundays if you’d like to drop by and pick up some pork and vegetables from The Farmacy, though please call ahead to ensure we are around.
