Situated in the beautiful countryside of the South West WA region and nestled in the forests against a lake, the focus at The Colony Concept Honeybee Farm is sustainability, and supporting local producers with a "Petal to Pot" and "Paddock to Plate" concept.

At Foodlosophy, we're 'More than just food'. We are a not for profit organisation serving food mindfully and with purpose.

We create our menus with the seasons and only use the freshest sustainable produce from friends and farmers within  100km of our gate.  

Foodlosophy is an environmentally conscious restaurant, dedicated to regenerating our land for the next generation. Our next goal is to establish our community kitchen garden right here at the colony to truly complete our paddock to plate menu and further close our food loop. At least 25% of the produce grown will go to our restaurant, with the remaining amount being returned to our community in various ways.
