AJ & GB CROMWELL & DAUGHTERS EST. 2001
Farming goes back many generations on both sides of our family in Australia and Canada. Today, with the help of our daughters Aubrey, Morley, and Bella, we manage 40 acres in the Byron Bay Hinterland using sustainable regenerative practices with a focus on rare heritage breeds. Our breeding program includes Kelpies, Large Black Pigs, Dexter Cattle, Chickens and Horses.

What We Do
A heritage breed known for ease of calving and mothering abilities. Ours are bred for an easy to handle temperament. Cows are naturally protective of their young and generally have an abundance of milk. Our breeding herd is predominantly black but we also have red and dun coat colours.
LARGE BLACK PIGS
Best known for its foraging abilities and maternal qualities. As its name implies, the breed is large framed and solid black. Lop ears fall forward over its face, and while they are an impediment to sight, they protect the eyes from damage during rooting and foraging.
It all started with a Red Kelpie Pup from a Dairy Farm. Red Dog our first Kelpie had four litters and we have kept a pup from most of them. Marley has taken over from Red with the help of Max and is about to have her fourth litter in early 2022.
Over the years we have raised and bred a variety of heritage breed chickens at our farms. Our current free range flock are a mix of Australorp, Plymouth Rock and Light Sussex breeds. As well as birds, we also sell fertile eggs, point of lay, and often have a rooster or two available.
Organic seasonal produce is hand picked & supplied daily directly to some of the region’s best local restaurants & caterers including The Diner Lennox, Barrio Byron Bay Stockpot Kitchen Lismore. Give us a call to find out what’s in season, arrange a farm visit or organise a delivery.
