Outback Lamb Farm Tours
Located 24 kilometres from Tullamore, Westpoint Farm is a slice of pure Australiana. Owners and fifth generation farmers, Fiona and Bill Aveyard run the 5000 hectare property with the help of their four 'farmhands', children Lily, Archie, Evie and Jim.
The pair have transformed their family-run operation into the Outback Lamb enterprise - supplying pasture raised, slow grown, ethically produced lamb to boutique butchers in Sydney, and more recently, Wollongong.
Westpoint Farm Tours is Fiona and Bill's latest venture, where visitors can learn first-hand about their sustainable farming philosophy and experience seasonal activities in action.
No tour of Westpoint would be complete without some homegrown Outback Lamb for lunch, served with a side of country hospitality.
