The Farm ice-cream

The Farm ice-cream is available in the Dairy Bails next to the playground and wooden welcome signs.

Currently there are two flavours available: Burnt Honey and Davidson plum. Both flavours are made using eggs straight from The Farm and other local ingredients.

All ice-cream is handmade by Mark Parry from Teven Valley Farm. Mark has won awards with his delicious creamy Burnt Honey ice-cream and the Davidson Plum is of course a fruit native to the northern rivers. The Farm has Davidson Plum trees growing on The Farm and recently collaborated with local European bee specialists Ally Young and Willow Hankinson to get both Kenyan and Flow Hives on The Farm. The Farm now has both native bees and European bees and the next step is to contribute farm honey to Mark’s Burnt Honey ice-cream.

With the new bees on The Farm we have been running a number of great beekeeping workshops and we plan to host many more over 2018.

Additionally, we’re running other bee-related courses. Coming up on the weekend of 20 and 21 January, Ally and Willow will be running Beginners Mead Making workshops and Beekeeping for Children workshops. For more information and bookings please visit

    Your pumpkin and plum ice creams are superb. I wish they were available in Canberra.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
