Freshwater Farm +
Freshwater Farm calls Worimi Country home and everything we do here revolves around a deep and genuine relationship with the land. We’re nestled in a quiet valley surrounded by rolling hills that stretch into the wilds of the National Park near the end of the long-reaching Myall Lakes on the mid-north coast of NSW.
Our connection here drives our family business. We respect and care for the earth that produces the natural properties that are the foundation of our Freshwater Farm products.
We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land, the Worimi Tribe. And in celebrating this connection, we’ve collaborated with a talented and ambitious indigenous artist, Brittney Paulson, for a pretty special Limited-Edition label that raises funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
About the artist
Brittney is a proud Worimi, Biripi, Kamilaroi artist who was born on Biripi Country (Taree, NSW). Brittney was inspired by her father, who she would watch & observe whilst growing up.
As a result, she has developed her own skills to create and establish her own style and has now been painting for four years. Now a full-time artist, Brittney is passionate about passing her knowledge and skills onto the younger generation of Indigenous children. The name Ukamirra’ is an Aboriginal word meaning Sunset that was shared by her father and inspired her art style. By using vibrant colours in her artwork to symbolize the beauty of our land, the strength of our people, and our connection to culture.
“My journey has only begun & I’m still growing as an Indigenous artist each day. I feel like I’m learning more about my culture through each painting I create.”
Where the land meets the sea
About the Art
‘Where the land meets the sea’ depicts what this relationship means to the artist and represents the Myall Lake throughout Worimi Country. The original work proudly features at our headquarters.
“I’d spend most of my time on the beach, camping with my mob, pipi hunting with my father and uncles. I’d always wander off wanting to learn and explore more. This was my way of connecting to the ocean and land: having a sense of belonging,” said Brittney.
Our Limited-Edition Lemon Myrtle + Manuka Honey range means you too can celebrate your relationship with land and make a difference in young Indigenous lives. When purchased from Woolworths, we will donate 20c and online orders will see $2 from every Limited-Edition Hand Wash and $1 from every Limited- Edition Body Bar donated to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
About the charity
Instilling a love of reading from an early age, Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) works across over 400 remote communities. The community-led charity responds to requests from remote Indigenous communities, where books are scarce and literacy levels are much lower than anywhere else in Australia.
Freshwater Farm, in partnership with Brittney, are thrilled to be able to support this incredible charity through our beautiful, limited edition range. Their purpose is to make a difference to the lives of Indigenous families by not only gifting new, culturally appropriate books – but also by running programs to inspire communities to tell and publish their own stories, in the language they choose.
We are thrilled to be able to support this incredible charity through our beautiful, limited edition range.
