Looking for a unique, eco-friendly and educational venue for your little one‟s next birthday party? Purple Pear Organics in Anambah, just outside Maitland NSW provide natural food and natural fun in a wonderful natural environment giving children everything they need for a memorable birthday party experience.

After the farm tour guests enjoy a seasonal story and receive party favours related to the story. For example guests at a Summer party listened to a delightful story about sunflowers and bees and took home a small jar of honey and a packet of sunflower seeds. Guests at my daughters recent Autumn party listened to a story about bulbs and got to take home their very own baby bulb to plant and nurture. My daughters bulb was planted in a pot and recently sprouted from the ground. Each time she waters it she mentions her „farm party‟ and the fun she had.

Does the amount of effort, waste, chaos and sugar that‟s associated with kids birthday parties concern you? Thankfully, Purple Pear Organic Farm in the lower Hunter Valley has started hosting simple, waste-free, natural, preservative-free birthday parties. My daughter recently celebrated her 5th birthday at Purple Pear Farm. I love that I could outsource party organisation without compromising on any of my ideals regarding waste, food and play. More importantly, my daughter and her friends thought it was the „best party ever!‟ These sweet parties each follow a similar structure, but are customised to the season and the birthday child‟s age and interests. Party food is seasonal and preservativefree. Celebrations start with a healthy snack of fruit kebabs, popcorn and a natural cordial. Later, the birthday cake is enjoyed with seasonal smoothies. The highlight of the parties is tour of the farm. Guests feed the ducks and chickens, collect eggs, munch on produce straight from the garden, nurse guinea pigs and feed the pony.
