King Island Farm Tours
Meat your Beef
If you are visiting King Island and are looking for things to do that connect you with our community and culture our farm tour will be able to give you just that, a true King Island experience. Beef farming has been the biggest industry on King Island for decades due to the excellent conditions to grow grass all year around.
What will you get during our farm tour?
The tour goes for about 1.5 hours. If you decide to stay for lunch or dinner it will go for longer for obvious reasons.
We will adapt our tour to your level of knowledge about farming. For example, if you are a farmer interested in knowing technical details about farming on King Island, we will deliver that. If you are a large group of people the tour will focus on the basics of beef production with an open space for questions from different members of the group. Either way it is a very interactive tour.
We will share with you why and how did we became involved in farming and how did we achieve what we have today. We will show you all the different classes (ages) of cattle so you can visualise how they look at different stages as well as the logistics of running a self replacement herd.
You will get more of the tour if you stay for lunch as we will have more time to talk about beef production and how what we do on the farm translates to the plate.

Situated on the North of King Island, on the way to Cape Wickham Lighthouse, our farm is conveniently located. The perfect stop between the biggest lighthouse of the southern hemisphere - Cape Wickham Lighthouse, the new first class golf course (http://capewickham.com.au/) and Currie (main King Island Town).
We run a herd of around 1000 head of pure Angus and Angus cross cattle in 1100 acres. Our cattle are 100% grass fed all year around in the pure and green King Island environment.
It is safe to say that King Island beef is probably the best in the world (I am sure most people will agree).
Although beef production is our main industry, we also have a small production of quails for quail eggs and free range chickens for egg production, all pasture fed. We also have a flow hive and soon we will be producing our own honey.
Offering a true paddock to plate experience, you will be able taste some of the best produce in Tasmania and on King Island. Have a look at our catering options here
