Team Mowbray are focused on making sure that your expectations are met, we aim to exceed those expectations. We’re a family run business in the business of looking after families.
We understand the needs of a farm for us it never really stops, farming is not a 9 to 5 job by any means. Adding people to our mix of responsibilities is great for our learning and energy.
We have families from all over Sydney, students from all over the world, inbound tour groups from all over Asia. The people we meet and get to know is amazing. We love nothing more than guests returning for another stay or visit, it’s like like catching up with old friends.
We each have our roles on the farm and many of them overlap, you will see us here there and everywhere on any given day. We have our field team headed by Blair and supported by our farmers and on occasion our resident backpackers.
We have our administration team, Chantelle and Sue plus Blair who spends enough time in the office to be a nuisance barely enough to be useful
Our resident Natural Horsemanship Instructor and Equine boss is Jacqui; she also heads our services team along with Gaynor, keeping the lodges clean and comfortable for guests.
Behind the scene’s are the hard working kitchen team. Led by our experienced Chef Evan McVey. Evan’s 20+ years in the industry has him preparing beautiful Australian meals with real country flavour using produce from the farm and as much local produce as we can source from valued suppliers such as Pheasants Nest Produce, Country Valley, Cedar Creek Orchard and Oaks Butcher.
Each person has a specific set of skills and when combined the days flow well.
