Forest Farm is located on Nyangbul land of the Bundjalung Nation at Tintenbar, in the Ballina Shire Council region of Northern NSW.
Family owned and operated, Forest Farm was originally acquired as a 110ha grazing property in 2016, with a harvestable forestry plantation consisting of stands of Flooded Gum, Blackbutt and Hoop Pine.

The property also contains a number of diverse, remnant ecosystems including riparian zones, forested wetlands and lowland subtropical rainforest. These ecosystems are being improved by the strategic removal of cattle from riparian and wetland zones, weed control, planting and assisted regeneration.

Moving forward, the owners aim to enhance and showcase Forest Farm’s existing natural beauty and to create a high-quality natural environment that offers a haven for diverse native flora and fauna; enabled through successfully restored and resilient vegetation ecosystems.

In the short term, this involves retaining forestry plantations as existing wildlife habitat (and koala food species), whilst strategically enhancing the ecological condition of the land through developing understory and replacement over time, to transition to functional and resilient vegetation ecosystems. To support this transition, the timber plantation has been registered as an eligible carbon offsets project under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF).
