Cheyenne Wilderness Retreat Farmstay is a true farmstay experience that is hands-on and interactive. We are an 1800 acre working cattle farm that is perched right on the edge of the Macleay Gorge in the beautiful New England Tablelands, near Walcha, New South Wales just a little over an hours drive from Armidale. We make sure that your farm stay experience starts the minute you arrive. You can relax in comfortable accommodation or settle in the gazebo right on the edge of the gorge.
Cheyenne Wilderness Retreat Farmstay is a working farm where you can come, stay and participate is our daily activities. If you are looking for a true Farm Stay experience, there is plenty to do. We do daily chores which include feeding the chickens, pig and milking the cow as well as collecting the eggs. You can try our eggs for your breakfast!!! As we have three kids ourselves, there is a sand pit, swings, bikes and trampoline as well as a heap of other toys! For the grownups, there is your own deck overlooking the Gorge whilst you read or just relax and re-charge the batteries.
Enjoy staying in one of our fully self contained Cottages. The Garden Cottage sleeps up to 6 and boasts its own private deck overlooking the McLeay River Gorge. Or stay in our two bedroom Homestead Wing which sleeps 4 with a wide veranda wrapped all the way around. If you really feel like having a real holiday, I am more than happy to cater meals for you and your family.
A working cattle farm, Cheyenne practices sustainable agricultural methods. We are trying to harness biological processes rather than relying on such things as fertilisers. We utilise the Cell Grazing method of farming which works in harmony with the environment by applying intense grazing pressure for short periods, followed by a long recovery time – mimicking nature just like the grazing of large groups of Wilder-beast in Africa.
That has led to significant regeneration of native trees and an abundance of wild flowers. In the long run, such grazing practices will also reduce parasite pressure by interrupting their life cycle. As it is, apart from strategic parasite control, we are well on the way of achieving our goal of organic production.
The rare and beautiful Brush Tail Rock Wallaby is a favourite visitor to Cheyenne
