Spring: A time of new beginnings, and what better time to start a weekly blog so you get to see what is happening here at Barkala Farm Stay – Home of Pilliga Pottery. The plan is to post weekly, with pictures, words, videos, and deals so you get a taste of what it is like to come visit us. There’s always something happening here and no matter what time of the year you come and stay you are bound to experience something special.
We have a great deal for visitors running for the month of August. If you stay more than one night you get a free hot breakfast for every morning after that extra night. Just mention the magic words “Hot breakfast deal” in your booking and you will be waking up to delicious country fare.
What’s Happening Down on the Farm?
The weather is starting to warm during the day and the birds think that it is time to find mates, but the nights are still chilly. This means we have both winter and spring blooms happening in the gardens. Those jonquils fill the air with scent, and a walk around the gardens is a must in the afternoon.
The organic greenhouse will be bursting with new growth for the Blue Wren Cafe in the next couple of weeks. It’s mostly been wintered over the last few months, doesn’t mean that it’s been entirely idle though as herbs and winter greens have been in big damnd in the kitchen.
The afternoon bird chorus is ramping up as visitors are flying in from everywhere. Imagine yourself relaxing under the trees, being serenaded by our feathered friends
See you soon!
