The Research Farm

Located on 10 acres in the beautiful Southern Highlands of New South Wales, the Research Farm was designed as a training and retreat centre for researchers who needed time out for concentrated writing or data analysis. It was also ideal for those who just wanted to spend time thinking about, talking through, or working on their research.



The Research Farm has been sold. This page is retained only as a historical record of the times researchers spent there.




“The Research Farm and Pat are an unbeatable combination... Finding an environment that develops my thinking, nourishes my body with superb cooking, and refreshes my spirit with opportunities to pick fresh berries, strawberries and collect the eggs - all while engaging in stimulating conversation and debate - is a blessing. These, combined with Pat's generosity in sharing her time, knowledge, expertise and wisdom make the research farm an invaluable find!” (Susan, after a five day workshop).
