Welcome to The Edible Forest, Annette Owen-Mulder and Les Mulder’s organic farm at Wherrol Flat.
We raise cattle and pigs, grow heritage fruit trees and a large range of vegetables. Annette uses the products of the fruit trees and veggie beds to make fabulous jams and preserves. We sell all of these things at local farmers’ markets.
In permaculture, the edible forest is a low maintenance and highly productive polyculture. It overproduces compared to monocultures and contains many different ecological niches, which are all occupied by useful species.
Our Edible Forest is a 56ha (140 acre) demonstration permaculture/holistic management farm 10 minutes out of Wingham, NSW. We are building permaculture gardens and housing, as well as raising a variety of animals.
In conjunction with Manning Landcare, we have run a number of field days, around Keyline concepts and permaculture design.
Our aim is to use this web site to document the journey we’re on, learning our new trade and building a sustainable farming enterprise.

This reminds me of when my kids were at Infants school in Strickland St. The mulberry tree in the school yard, they used to come home all purple in mulberry season.
On 31st March Georgie arrived to stay. She is a sweet, gentle little cow, a trifle tubby but Anna said she gave her lots of treats.
Yesterday Les looked at her and thought the she was looking thin. She's the bottom of the pecking order here with our little herd so he was worried she might be missing out on the good feed but... look what he found this morning
Anna said it must have been an immaculate conception ... See MoreSee Less

The last two frosts have knocked our early crops back.

Wow they look great! Haven't heard of that trick with leeks.
Impressive, so pray tell what's the toilet roll method? Is it simply placing a loo roll cardboard over the young leeks?
Well done!! I’ve leek envy x
