Warrah Farm Shop, located in Dural, is a social enterprise selling a full range of certified organic produce, dairy products, groceries, bread and meat. We supplement what we grow on Warrah Biodynamic Farm to offer the widest variety of Australian certified organic and biodynamic fruit and vegetables all year round.
The Farm Shop is part of Warrah, a not for profit organisation providing services for adults and children with disability. The farm and the shop engage people with disability through volunteering and work experience. All profits from the Farm Shop go towards Warrah’s disability services.
Organic fruit and vegetables have always been at the very heart of Warrah’s existence. Warrah was established over 50 years ago on a beautiful bush property at Dural. A small biodynamic vegetable garden was established by Karl Kaltenbach in 1965, as a means for young adults with intellectual disability to learn skills and to engage in productive and purposeful work.
This organic garden has grown into the thriving Warrah Biodynamic Farm and Warrah Farm Shop, which has been certified organic and biodynamic since 1994. Our beautiful, natural surroundings are a great asset to the work we do and to the people we support.
Our vision is to provide opportunities for active participation in organic farming and gardening. Through hands-on involvement on our working organic farm people living with disability experience the intrinsic therapeutic benefits of farming and gardening.
The farm serves as a vehicle to help develop a wide range of transferable skills and capacities but, just as importantly, to help build and strengthen community, provide social opportunities and strengthen connection to the natural environment.
In order to maximise the potential of our facilities, and in service to our community, we aim to offer our customers the widest variety of certified organic and biodynamic fruit, vegetables and groceries possible all year round.
