Delicious Vegetarian Food

The Krishna Farm has been producing organic veggies since the 1980s and has therefore fantastic conditions to grow excellent produce. We grow as much of our own food as we can, and otherwise buy locally wherever possible.

We provide 3 delicious vegetarian meals every day, with lunches taking place at the Krishna Village community kitchen, and breakfast and dinners – mostly Indian style – served at the prasadam hall, next to the temple.

All our food is prasadam – sacred food prepared in a consciousness of loving service. Like in other cultures, we offer our food before we eat to say Grace and thank the Divine for the sun, the rain, and all the visible and invisible blessings necessary to co-create a delicious meal. Feel free to sing along with us, or just listen and enjoy…

The Krishna Farm

Nestled in the foothills of Mount Warning, in the heart of the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, the Hare Krishna Farm “New Govardhana” is a 1000 acre certified organic property with orchards, veggie gardens, cows, horses, streams and swimming holes in abundance.

New Govardhana serves as an ashram to a community of yogis who aspire to live according to their deepest vows and commitments on their path of service, spiritual contentment and happiness (Bhakti Yoga). Their service and dedication make this location a beautiful place of growth, healing and spiritual awakening. If you are interested, please come along and visit our beautiful Radha Govardhandhari temple. our Radha Govardhandari temple

The perfect place to leave the world behind and come home to yourself. - Lili (Melbourne)

Venue Highlights

Nestled in the foothills of Mount Warning, in the heart of the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, our Hare Krishna Farm “New Govardhana” is a beautiful 1000 acre property with orchards, organic veggie gardens, cows, horses, streams and swimming holes in abundance.

From the moment when you cross the rustic wooden bridge over the Oxley River and pass through the beckoning avenue of trees which comprises the entrance to the farm, you will notice that this Vedic Yoga Sanctuary is a special place and that your soul finds peace and a sense of coming home.

New Govardhana serves as an ashram to a community of yogis who aspire to live according to their deepest vows and commitments on their path of service, spiritual contentment and happiness (Bhakti Yoga). Their service and dedication make this location a beautiful place of growth, healing and spiritual awakening.

Apart from immersing themselves into their spiritual lives, the devotees also run a school, a cow protection program, big organic gardens and orchards, and an infinite number of yogic festivals and retreats throughout the year. In this context, the Krishna Village serves as an outreach program, inviting retreat guests, course participants and spiritual seekers from all over the world and all ages to participate in the farm's activities and experience a simple, happy and wholesome lifestyle.

      6-day Retreat & Volunteering

    6 days to get away from life in a big city was both too short & also perfect amount of time to reset. I got my hands into the earth, left my phone in my room & spoke to strangers who so quickly became friends. Reconnected with a good life that sometimes gets so lost in cities. I learned meditation, yoga, self-love, breathing& the art of being able to stop at any given time, to connect to myself again if I ever feel overwhelmed. So many different personalities, ways of life & souls I learned from and listened to which is important in order to show true compassion. Already looking forward to going back. It will become a regular in my life. Thank you Krishna Village 🙏🏼 💫

      Affordable and Excellent Experience

    I attended Krishna Village for a yoga retreat in August 2019 for 3 nights. I stayed in a single room/cabin, which was basic but had everything I needed, including a heater for the colder nights. Bathrooms are shared and basic, but are functional. The yoga classes were excellent and the studio is beautiful, overlooking the hillside with cows in the foreground. Food is basic, but either grown onsite or sourced locally. Overall, amazing value and a perfect place to disconnect!

      Glorious Venue with Incredible People and Support

    We love Krishna Village so much. We are an outside organisation teaching Life Coaching and Personal Development Skill and were looking for a retreat venue. We are not affiliated with Krishna but we found this venue and support people to be totally fantastic. Everyone was so lovely, welcoming and enthusiastic about what we do, from our first contact to the on going care by the event manager Danielle, who is amazing and a total delight. The environment is incredibly beautiful and the energy peaceful and energising. We loved the fact that the cows were all around and that we could freely visit the baby cows and be so welcomed by their carers. The food that was cooked for us was beautiful. The vegetables were picked that morning and cooked with so much love and care by Dee and her team. Conor the IT person was really lovely and helpful and the room was beautifully cleaned and energised every morning before we arrived. There was so much attention to detail and so much love, care and support put into everything. It was such a pleasure and is now our all time favourite venue! Thank you so much everyone involved at Krishna Village we so highly recommend you.

      Amazing journey of finding mindfulness

    It has been amazing journey of finding mindfulness while doing yoga, meditation and volunteer service. Really grateful for the opportunity to volunteer at the garden where I could harvest fresh cherry tomatos, lettuce and all sorts of veggies! Also felt very special to be allowed to help out in the temple to prepare and serve vegetarian food. Feeling really great after eating vegetarian food for a week -- I can probably turn vegetarian if I can cook such good vegetarian cuisines!

      Amazing Place, amazing people

    If you ask me Krishnavillage is a place where dreams come true. It offers all you need if you want to get away from the busy city life and connect with nature, if you want to deepen your spirituality or if you just want to find out more about the practice of yoga. The area is surrounded by lush forests, mountains and a river, the food is delicious, plenty and on top of that healthy. But the best part is with out a question the beautiful souls you going to meet there. In short krishnavillage is a place where you can be yourself without any compromises!
