Burnside Bungalows is 15 hectares (37 acres) in size. We manage the farm using organic and biodynamic principles. We are certified organic with Australian Certified Organic (ACO). ACO has a strict traceability system that guarantees our produce is organic from the farm gate to your dinner plate.
Currently we have two hundred avocados, two hundred olives, an acre of semillon, an acre of zinfandel and one hundred macadamias. Each April we hand pick our olives and press them for extra virgin olive oil. Our olive oil and other produce is for sale in season.
Behind our house we have a permaculture vegetable garden and netted orchard. Currently we have loquats, mulberries, apricots, nectarines, peacharines, plums, pears, apples, almonds, cherries, blueberries, guavas, sapotes, hazelnuts, pecans, lemons, oranges, grapefruit, tamarillos and mandarins planted. Chickens and ducks are rotated through garden beds to keep down weeds and fertilise the trees and vegetable beds.
