Wongarra Farm is nestled in the picturesque hills overlooking the Southern Otways Coast. Its 35 hectares consist mainly of lush pasture but also include two creeks, rain-forested gullies and remnant bush. The farm is the essence of diversity, with a herd of grass-fed Welsh Black cattle, a mob of Suffolk cross sheep, free-range Wessex Saddleback pigs, pastured chickens and a truffiere producing the treasured Perigord Black Truffle.
The farm is owned by Roderick Poole and Suzanne Chaundy, who bring a wealth of experience from lives spent working in the performing arts; Roderick as a performer and writer and founder of the street performance group Strange Fruit and Suzanne as a theatre and opera director working with Opera Australia, Melbourne Opera and Lyric Opera Melbourne. Their sense of theatricality ensures the farm is not only productive, but a feast for the senses.
