Cheyenne Wilderness Retreat Farmstay is a true farmstay experience that is hands-on and interactive. We are situated right on the edge of the Macleay Gorge in the beautiful New England High Country, near Walcha, New South Wales just a little over an hours drive from Armidale. We make sure that your farm stay experience starts the minute you arrive. It's quite simple really, if the kids are happy, mum and dad are going to be happy too!! That's why we strive to try and make your holiday as memorable as possbile.
We are a working farm where you can come, stay and participate is our daily activities. If you are looking for a true Farm Stay experience, there is plenty to do. We do daily chores which include feeding the chickens, pig and milking the cow as well as collecting the eggs. As we have three kids ourselves, there is a sand pit, swings, bikes and trampoline or just let your kids run around! Or, if you don't have kids, this is a place where you can come and enjoy the views, relax and re-charge the batteries.
Enjoy staying in one of our three fully self contained accommodations. The Garden Cottage sleeps up to 6 and boasts its own private deck overlooking the magnificent gorge. Our two bedroom Homestead Wing sleeps 4 with a wide veranda wrapped all the way around. We also have a three bedroom, two bathroom home, called Bimbimbi, which suits large families or groups.
We practice sustainable agricultural methods. We are trying to harness biological processes rather than relying on such things as fertilisers. We utilise the Cell Grazing method of farming which works in harmony with the environment by applying intense grazing pressure for short periods, followed by a long recovery time.
That has led to significant regeneration of native trees and an abundance of wild flowers. In the long run, such grazing practices will also reduce parasite pressure by interrupting their life cycle. As it is, apart from strategic parasite control, we are well on the way of achieving our goal of organic production.
