About Us

Opening to the public in early 2024, 11 Acre farm is a working farm planned around permaculture farming principles and situated on beautifully landscaped grounds.

We are a family business with strong values and a deep respect for the important role food plays in family, community, and our environment. Our brand-new farm-house cafe & kitchen opens in May with a separate restaurant, function venue, gourmet farm shop and on-site micro-brewery to follow.
Our menus across all outlets will be guided by a produce-led approach to reflect our farm to table, zero waste ethos, with a strong focus on seasonality and sustainability.

We are a lot more than yet another family friendly cafe. Working closely with passionate and likeminded suppliers and utilising our own farm-grown produce, 11 Acre Farm is set to be an exciting culinary destination, and totally unique in Perth.
