Visit to Jodi and Michael's 'Cloudy Farm' at Dorrigo


'Cloudy Cauldron' is beautifully located on the Dorrigo Plateau.

"The Cloudy Cauldron" is a working farm, with a focus on supplying fruit and vegies to the local area. Jodi and Michael have landscaped on a grand scale, drawing on their farming backgrounds and extensive knowledge to create an edible wonderland that still has room for frivolity and flowers.
We have visited this near Dorrigo site before and it is always exciting to see new developments made by the industrious couple. 
This visit is Mid Autumn although climate change has meant a very unseasonable hot autumn. The day was wet and breezy.
The new poly-tunnel held climbing beans, cucumbers and more
Dorrigo Seedsavers joined us for the day.

The 'Kiwi Fruit' was laden.

Beds are mulched to prevent sun scorching and erosion from heavy rain.

Turkeys are new to the farm.
