the farm is continually teaching us 

OUR connection to the earth

Farm Tours

Penobscot Farm is our home, a workplace, and a site we need to protect from multitudes of trampling feet and inquisitive hands. For this reason Farm Tours are only available to Watervale Epicurean Society Members, or as a pre-booked event including our Six Senses Farm Tours that operate from Spring Equinox in September until early in May. Farm tours can be arranged as part of accommodation packages at the Watervale Hotel Guesthouse, and as part of Watervale Hotel seasonal dining events, cooking schools and degustation’s. 

Six Senses Farm Tour  and Tasting Menu Dinner – 4pm EVERYDAY subject to bookings.   

You will be encouraged to hear, see, smell, feel and taste your way through the farm as you learn about organic, bio-dynamic and permaculture farming.

The sixth sense is energetic. Bio-dynamic farming requires intuitive energetic connection with the earth and the unique environment that is our farm. Activity on the farm is dictated by the moon – both times of the day and times of the lunar month. 

This magic or alchemy is the aspect that triggers our sixth sense when enjoying the full and fresh flavour as well as health-giving properties of bio-dynamic food.  

Must be booked in association with a six course degustation dinner for $210 / head, or $275 / head including matched wine and tutored tasting.  Watervale Hotel Guesthouse guests receive priority booking privilege.
