New Gokula Hare Krishna Farm is a 500 acre property in the Hunter Valley, Australia. The project was founded in 1988 when a small but dedicated team of devotees purchased the land with the goal of establishing a self-sufficient Hare Krishna community. In 1990, a spacious rammed earth building was completed which serves as the present temple of Sri Sri Radha Gokulananda.
The focus here at New Gokula is to see to the welfare of our 65 cows and bulls whilst establishing sustainable farming practices – the Vedic formula for meeting all economic needs. By protecting the cows and bulls for their natural life, New Gokula has become one of the few establishments worldwide that are able to offer ahimsa (cruelty free) dairy produce to the community.
Now the farm community consists of around twelve committed members involved in temple services, holding spiritual festivals and retreats, besides maintaining the cows, and tending to the vegetable and flower gardens.
Come and grow with us as we work towards a greener, more God conscious world !
New Gokula also has a city centre and restaurant, The Bhakti Tree, in Mayfield, an hour’s drive away from the farm. This centre showcases the farm’s simple and sustainable living to the city dwellers by using New Gokula farm’s pure, organic milk and vegetable produce in its cooking.
