Restaurant Without Walls

The intermittent light showers of rain didn’t dampen the Yanalla Farms Long Table Lunch festivities on Sunday, 19 November 2018.  In fact, the raising of wine glasses and umbrellas just added to the unique outdoor dining experience, as did the beautiful floral arrangements.

Meet Some of The Faces @ Yanalla Farms

Hey there. Rob and Karen Martin checking in. Delighted to virtually meet you. As proud owners of Yanalla Farms we're not afraid to roll up our sleeves and dive right into the dirt... literally!  Whether that be propagating, planting, picking, packing, pruning or pest control.  But let's be real, the greatest challenge nowadays is not getting our hands dirty - it's trying to gracefully stand back up afterward!

The Curated Plate for 2024 Now Launched

Yanalla Farms are an official proud Industry Partner of The Curated Plate food and drink festival for 2024. Get crackin' folks, as the program has just been launched.  Last year, our long table lunch event was a smash hit, selling out within a mere two weeks. Don't let history repeat itself - secure your spot early this year!  But wait, there's a twist! This time around, we're doubling the fun by hosting not one, but two events.

There's Some Holes In My Story

There's Some Holes In My Story

Do you know much about holes, especially those that show up on a farm? On our farm, they seem to appear overnight. They could be from our clever farm dog, Vader, digging up a bone he buried earlier or maybe from bandicoots burrowing around, as we have plenty on the farm. Or perhaps the holes are created by pesky hares that, after gnawing on our irrigation lines, decide to dig around in the dirt instead.

The Greatest Show On Earth

Get ready to wave goodbye to our dragon fruit season in the next couple of months! The cooler weather is putting a chill on our buds, flowers, and fruit production. The plants themselves? Well, they're not going to win any beauty contests. These cacti are prickly personalities, with enough spikes to ward off an echidna. Even though I suit up in long sleeves and gloves, I can't escape a few prickles and scratches on my arms when picking the fruit.

Celebrating World Bee Day

Did you know World Bee Day buzzes around on May 20th? It's like a sweet celebration of the little winged wonders that keep us and the planet in tip-top shape! Our farm couldn't do without them - they’re like tiny flying matchmakers for our lychee and dragon fruit orchards. Without them, our fruit production would go downhill fast.
