The Millers Cottage is the original millers house on the railway siding at Mudgee where grains were loaded from the silos onto the freight trains that carried them down to the bake houses of Sydney and beyond.
Today, the railway rests along the foothills of Mudgee, used only as a walking track that cuts a swathe across the landscape behind the old houses and industrial left overs of an era long passed.
Our kitchen garden grows our heirloom tomatoes and in high summer is filled with zinnias, cosmos, dahlias and flowers that flow into any space the garden can spare.
We pickle our olives and dry our mandarine peel here all summer, alongside our drying tomatoes.
No chemicals are used in our garden whatsoever – all we use is sunshine, chook manure and comfrey tea to provide optimal growing conditions for our produce.
