Buena Vista Farm - Gerringong


Fiona & Adam are well known locals who have taken on the challenge of running a productive farm in Gerrongong. Buena Vista is a family farm bought by Fiona’s great-great-grandfather in 1859, when, after renting it for almost twenty years, it came up for sale and he rode his horse into the auction at Kiama and successfully bid on it. Almost three years ago Fiona and Adam moved back from the city to the farm with the intention of building a small, sustainable operation which would support their young family.
