A MUST VISIT!
This was our second visit and things went smoothly. We arrived early to make sure we got on the list for a lunch table. The kitchen starts lunch service at 12pm and turn things around quickly. The food is fresh with great quality. It’s not cheap, but there are plenty of low cost options in and around Byron.
It’s a very cool experience for adults and kids alike. There are plenty of take away options if you want a picnic on the lawns, there’s also a small supermarket full of locally sourced produce.
Add in a florist/nursery, bookshop and ice cream and you’re set to please just about everyone.

Beautiful environment to enjoy so yes worth a visit, especially if you have kids. The concept is excellent. We went for brunch. The food was nothing special, healthy, but lacked flavour and wow factor for the reputation built up. The menu was limited. Coffee however was delicious.
The staff were not entirely on the ball, slow to take orders while cleaning up other tables and chatting. There seemed to be a dedicated staff to tables process which wasn’t working with some staff standing around while our waitress seemed too busy to get to us.

The theory is spot on... fresh...local...real food etc but the pricing at The Farm just makes you feel like you are part of an eccentric commercial experiment to see how far they can push the Byron Lifestyle and still get people to pay!! However The Bails ice cream is divine, only comes in two flavours but that is all you need! Shout out to the owners, please could you provide the chickens with some more shade... a little tree maybe?!

If you are from Sydney think of this as 'The Grounds of Alexandria' on steroids & with Sydney pricing.
Although expensive the food is great quality and atmosphere is relaxed. A great place for families with young children or tourists who have never seen live farm animals. This place also caters for foodies, the fresh produce is great and the restaurant is very hipster serving delicious meals with most of the ingredients coming from the farm or somewhere very close by.
It is very busy here with the car park normally close to full with some 100 or so cars, though because of the size, apart from the restaurant it does not feel crowded.

Look, the concept is great and the food is on point, coffee and bakery all good. There is just something that grates me about the place? Not sure what it is, might be how contrived the fit out is, like it is designed to be there not the organically built place it makes out to be, I feel like I’m in Dubai when I’m there. The staff make you feel like you are in Bondi not Byron but I think that is just Byron now? Prices are what I would expect in Bondi not in Byron. For what it is worth, it gets 3 stars, it would get 4 if it didn’t try too hard to fit in. I would go back just not in a hurry.
