At FairyWrenFarm we are caretakers of this bird shaped piece of land at the headwaters of the mighty Clarence River on the Dorrigo Plateau.
Sustainable best practice is engaged to produce organic food, fibre, flower and forest with bio-dynamic principles and preparations applied.

The Rock Circle encapsulates the brain like a crown on the head of the bird.
The position of the eye is where the spacious studio is situated. Outside the studio from the vantage point of the veranda, Fantasmagorica, the fantastic, magical beast rocks on her flying spud bag waiting for the darkness for her night flights.

The watercourse is fully fenced, excluding grazing animal's access to the creek and protecting our efforts to regenerate the forest with an abundance of diverse indigenous species abundant with berries and fruit for our native birds and wildlife.
