MEET THE BUSINESSES OF BURNEDALE FARM

Burnedale Farm is an iconic destination on the North Coast, from the bistro to the animal farm, playground and everything in between. We can all agree that it’s an incredible place, but do you know about all of the wonderful businesses that call Burnedale home?

The farm itself has changed a lot over the years and is undergoing more changes with new businesses moving in and others expanding. It is so apt that families gravitate towards this place as the tenants share a family-like bond themselves.

A prominent feature of the centre is the lush greenery. When you visit Oasis Beauty Spa, you have the opportunity to sit amongst the foliage in the tranquil backyard garden Louette has lovingly curated. You can enjoy a range of speciality treatments including massages, waxing, manicures, pedicures and facials with six therapists to pamper you.

Across from the spa is Yiammy’s Farm & Gift Store. Here, you will find a selection of locally made products. From craft rusks to preserves, relishes and freshly baked goods you can pick up on weekends, it’s the best our community has to offer. Need a last-minute gift? They have a variety of trinkets, crafted locally, which they even wrap up for you!
