I’m Hayden Findlay, growing a business and bringing up my daughters Pippa and Louisa.
I had a passion for farming and working on the land for as long as I can remember. I have had many year’s experience working on farms around Victoria and South Australia, as well as in corporate agriculture.
In 2009, I decided to pursue a dream of making a living off our small family farm in Moriac. I knew that in order to make the farm a viable business I had to think outside of the square. I'm passionate about using alternative, regenerative farming techniques in order to
restore the land as well as earn a profit from it.
Since 2008 I have been redeveloping the 90 acre property. In this time I have converted a humble beef farm providing minimal income, into a bio-diverse, naturally regenerating environment with a wide variety of stacked enterprises.
Raspberries and a range of brambleberries were planted at Ravens Creek Farm in September 2011. The berries are now available to pick your own in December and January every year.
I opened the cafe and farm shop in Spring 2013, and it continues to grow and evolve each year.
I sell our grass-fed lamb and true free range pork direct to the growing base of customers on a monthly basis. Pork, bacon, ham and salamis are now available in various retail outlets across Geelong and the Surf Coast.
I also produce our own natural honey, free range eggs, seasonal vegetables and cut flowers.
I'm a dedicated, passionate farmer who is eager to share knowledge.
