Brookfarm | Healthy food, family business, and regenerating a rainforest along the way

Will Brook is CEO of Brookfarm which offers a range of delicious products from breakfast muesli and porridge, to a range of snacks and more recently Gin from their Cape Byron Distillery located on Brookfarm, and run by Wills younger brother Ed.

Brookfarm is a family run business which began when Will and Ed’s parents, Martin and Pam Brook, bought a (site unseen) farm just outside of Byron Bay. When they arrived they found an absolutely barren hillside – much to their dismay.

They’ve come a long way from those early days and now the farm creates batches of sustainable products while maintaining the land and rainforest.

Their generational approach to family business, the natural farming practices and ongoing conservation work all combined make this one inspiring operation. 

We’ve planted over 35000 trees to regenerate the rainforest on the farm.”

— Will Brook, Brookfarm
