Two men have pleaded guilty to the stabbing murder of a Sydney man whose body was found in a bush grave in the NSW Hunter region.

In the NSW Supreme Court on Thursday, Donald John Cameron, 64, and Stanley Robert Forward, 23, pleaded guilty to murdering Jacob Munro, 24, and to knowingly taking part in the cultivation of 664 cannabis plants in July 2014.

David Ian Wilkinson, 69, also admitted the cultivation charge and receiving, harbouring, maintaining and assisting Forward, knowing he had murdered Mr Munro.

Mr Munro's body was found in a grave in the Bulahdelah State Forest five months after he was reported missing from Schofields by associates.

The men were arraigned before Justice Desmond Fagan, who adjourned their sentence hearing to Friday.
