In The Country Cookbook
After the incredible success of their Bronte cafe, Mark LaBrooy, Darren Robertson and the rest of the Three Blue Ducks team upped sticks and opened a new restaurant and produce store at The Farm in Byron Bay. Here, they have nurtured and built upon their garden-to-plate ethos to create real food that is locally sourced, reared humanely and supportive of the local community. At The Farm, the Ducks’ love for sustainable food is taken to the next level as they cook with the produce that is literally on their doorstep, creating new and exciting dishes while learning the ropes of farm life.
The Ducks is a great story of food, born in the surf! It all started with three good mates travelling the world, cultivating ideas around a better, more sustainable approach to eating and living. During this time, with a shared belief in cooking food that is delicious and ethical, Three Blue Ducks were hatched.
We returned to Bronte to enjoy the coastal surf lifestyle and soon our crew of three grew to six. We became friends organically over our love of sharing great food with no frills, cooking, fishing and surfing together, whilst maintaining an ethical and sustainable business that we are amazingly proud of to this day!
Since opening our flagship Three Blue Ducks restaurant in Bronte, we’ve opened an authentic and relaxed range of dining venues in Byron Bay, Rosebery, Brisbane, Melbourne and Nimbo.
