Off Grid Living
premium blueberries & seasonal produce
Off-grid regenerative blueberry farmers and locavore chefs with a strawbale farmstay & cantina. We host private functions & special events. Est 2001.
Blue Tongue Berries is a 20 acre organic blueberry farm located near Seymour in Central Victoria. We farm premium quality organic blueberries and sell to the local region. We believe in self-sufficient living and produce our own food, power and water. The farm is completely off the grid and runs on a hybrid solar and wind power system. Our main building is constructed from strawbales and has a passive solar design. The property is high on a hill and overlooks the splendour of the Tallarook Ranges and Goulburn Valley.
