Sydney’s Lower North Shore is getting an “urban farm” venue from Acre

After the successful launch of restaurants in Camperdown and Melbourne, the Acre Group is expanding even further by launching its third venue in Sydney’s lower north shore.

Situated in Artarmon, the urban farm-inspired space will include bakeries, cafes, restaurants, bars, a kitchen garden and a greenhouse-style function space, aligning with the already existing Acre venues.

The open-air site will be surrounded by garden trails and an abundance of grown produce including fresh herbs, flowers, and exotic fruit trees. The venue will also have its very own chicken coop and focus largely on composting and hydroponic growing systems. Vertical gardens will be plentiful alongside pergolas with strawberries and bougainvillea, surrounding picnic-style areas and kids’ playgrounds. 

“Acre Artarmon represents a rebirth and emergence out of this challenging time,” said acre Director Luke Heard. “We hope that with its sprawling outdoor, open-air, and spacious areas, combined with new and exciting food and agritourism experiences, acre Artarmon will offer a place to connect and reconnect for us all.”

Whilst guests can delight in the farm-to-table dining experience, they will also have the opportunity to take part in guided tours, chef masterclasses, twilight gardening, produce markets, kids programs and plenty more.

Acre Artarmon is located 1 Frederick Street, Artarmon and will open in September 2020.
