WHAT WE DO
About One Table Farm
Tim and Cree started developing their 'Climate Change Aware' - One Table Farm Cooking School - in 2014 when they moved with their 3 children to 100 acres in Cowaramup in the Margaret River Region of the south west of Western Australia. The farm was a blank canvas, but 5 years on, they have built a 1600m2 orchard, with over 40 fruit and nut trees, including macadamias, walnuts, pecans, stone fruits, coffee and tea, apples, pears, custard apple, pomegranates...and a 1600m2 kitchen garden. Tim and Cree also grow capers which they sell pickled. Their farming philosophy is to use modern regenerative techniques, high welfare animal practices and organic principles to produce the best seasonal food possible.
Who We Are
Cree’s previous life was as a zoo and wildlife veterinarian before she moved into animal ethics and welfare, qualifying in 2014 with an additional veterinary qualification in animal welfare, ethics and law. She also followed her very strong passion for cooking, handed down to her from her European mother and trained as a chef at the prestigious Cordon Bleu Cooking School in Paris. Only able to speak a small amount of French, Cree achieved the award for top student in cuisine cooking.
Cree is passionate about improving the lives that animals’ lead and advocates for eating less meat, making informed choices about buying meat with a known history and knowing the animals have had a life worth living. She believes we can all learn to cook vegetables with amazing flavour, allowing us to reduce our reliance on meat as the main component of our diet.
Tim is enjoying the life of a farmer after many years in the corporate sector working with senior executives and emerging leaders to reach their potential. With such a significant change, Tim is loving the daily challenge of learning about regenerative and sustainable farming practices. Tim is also a secret sourdough master, from an early age having watched his mother use and feed the sourdough starter that sat on the kitchen bench in the Yukon in Canada. We still have and use her original enormous sourdough mixing bowl.
Cree and Tim are passionate teachers and the farm’s philosophy is to provide both an educative farm experience, but also a delicious one. We are also very interested in harnessing local and global knowledge and attracting people to our farm to build increased food cooperation.
Here at onetablefarm, we hope to teach you about sourcing your food, how it grows and how to cook it. In many ways, it is back to basics.
Tim and Cree are working with more and more farmers to provide them with advice on practical changes in animal husbandry that will not only improve the animal’s lives but lead to better, tastier meat and to offer both the farmer and the buyer a lot more choice.
