Enjoy the benefits of a farm-based rural setting

Ashley and Carly Clark purchased Splitters Farm in mid-2017 with a view to give their five children the benefit of a farm-based rural upbringing.

Ashley Clark began flower farming at age 16 and went on to become an electrician. Carly Clark grew up on acreage as a kid in South West Sydney and always loved animals. Her very first job at 14 was picking up eggs on a battery hen farm so she was also exposed to animal cruelty through unsustainable farming practices from a young age. It was always their dream to own a property and run some cattle but it wasn’t until someone offered to purchase the family home during a garage sale in Bundaberg’s CBD that it got the couple thinking about buying a farm. The dream has evolved ever since. They bought 160 acre dump (yes, it was literally a dumping ground) on the outskirts of Bundaberg in the middle of drought and almost as soon as they had fences that worked they began taking on rescue animals. Farmers who were selling up to move back into town because of drought needed to rehome animals so that’s how Splitters Farm started as sanctuary for unwanted farm animals. In order to supplement the growing costs of feed and vet bills for so many, Carly began running farm tours in late 2019 however the couple felt that there was an opportunity to educate and inspire guests if they could stayed longer. During 2020 the couple got busy building a farm stay, and in Dec 2020 the Clark family opened the accommodation side of the farm business with over 50 powered camp sites with 8 deluxe glamping tents to follow soon after.

Carly says of Splitters, “There’s obviously more to a farm stay than just feeding baby animals and our aim is to involve and educate guests during their stay. They gain an understanding of why it’s better to see babies feeding naturally from their mums in a paddock or learn about good paddock rotation practices or the benefits of sustainable farming. It’s the hands on experience that we now get the opportunity to share with guests like branding cattle, candling eggs or assisting with the birth of a young calf. There is always something happening on the farm and now that people have the option to farm stay with us on site, there is the added guarantee of seeing something that is life changing or transformational.

We know people of all ages will benefit from farm fresh air, sunshine and a little dirt under their finger nails. Splitters Farm is a destination where you can unwind, feed ducks, collect eggs, ride a horse, sit by the campfire and relive the nostalgia of your own childhood experiences, while making new memories with loved ones.”
