Oakenville Farm

Oakenville Farm is a pleasant 1km stroll from the Peel Inn, Nundle toward the high country of Hanging Rock. The 5 acre property is gradually being transformed by owners Jeff and Rachel into a haven of permaculture, education, health and wellness and creativity. Jeff’s skills in innovative building using recycled materials, are evident in the increasing rustic chique buildings and infrastructure which blend in with the well-worn original 150 year old farmhouse. The old duck-house is now an Infrared sauna room, the junk shed has been transformed into outdoor bathroom including an ice-bath and both the ‘Studio’ and ‘Herb and Brew House’ have been constructed from salvaged timber from various buildings around Nundle.

Rachel is trained as a Pilates Teacher and has 20 years experience in health. She runs weekly Pilates classes from the studio, and is passionate about the wellness benefits from the Infrared sauna which is open to the public for bookings. Once the horse-float tiny house and bell-tent glamping projects are complete, the increased onsite accommodation options will be the final step in launching weekend Health and Wellness Retreats on the property. Rachel is also training as a Western Herbal Medicine Practitioner and the Herb and Brew House is becoming an Apothecary filled with remedies made from plants grown and gathered on the property. These plant medicines are for sale from their roadside honesty produce stall at the front of the property and via special order.

The property is also a creativity hub where musicians and artists can gather. The studio triples as a Pilates, Music Recording and Live Music Venue. Several small house-concerts have been held here and Jeff’s culinary skills, alongside his song-writing prowess have been enjoyed by many in the Nundle community. A large deck/stage is currently in construction for larger house-concerts to be held at this unique live music venue in the very near future.

Whether you are needing a health cleanse in Oakenville Infrared Sauna, a good stretch in a Pilates class, a taste of free-range eggs, honey and organic produce, an educational experience on the numerous benefits of a slow and simple permaculture lifestyle, an infusion of live music or a creative weekend retreat, you can be guaranteed of an inspirational experience at Oakenville Farm. Come and see what truly living at one with nature, is all about.
