Situated at Mulbring on 130 acres of undulating land backing onto the State forest below Mt Sugarloaf and Mt Vincent, Fairhill Farm is approximately 40 minutes drive from Newcastle, 60 minutes from the start of the F3 Freeway (near Hornsby) and just 1.5 hours from the major horse centre of Scone in the heart of the Hunter Valley.
The area receives good annual rainfall (double that of the Upper Hunter), while an ongoing pasture improvement scheme and regular testing ensures grass protein levels that are exceptional.
Hands on management by the people who own and run the farm means your horse is in good hands, with all horses inspected a minimum of twice daily.
Two feeds, morning and evening with hay provided. Improved pasture ensures the horses ample intake of fresh nourishment also.
We can provide any special requirement for feeding your horse.
Debbie and I have personally foaled down all mares on the farm for the last 7 years. You can know within 30 minutes what your mare has foaled for you if you so wish, no matter what the time of day!!!
