The Old Farm is made up of historic arable land, initially cleared of native vegetation and then hand tilled by convict labour during settlement in the late 1800s.
The Beck Family now farm beef and produce of premium quality using heirloom seeds and rare breed genetics. Shorthorn and Hereford breed cattle have been run on the property since the family purchased The Old Farm. Recently the Beck Family have also expanded in growing seasonal produce including tomatoes, pumpkins and potatoes.
The Old Farm’s beef and fresh produce is then supplied to the family’s restaurant, the Riverfront Restaurant & Bar. The Beck Family also have a seasonal stall at Hobart’s Farm Gate Market, selling their heirloom variety pumpkins. Produce is often featured in Backyard Bounty’s vegie boxes
