Each weekend Annie lovingly creates a menu that features things that are ready in the garden and some of the finest meats and/or poultry from the surrounding region.It is comfortable honest food for sharing with friends.

We are thrilled that Daniel’s painting of Annie has been selected as one of finalists for the 2016 Archibald. We are all VERY EXCITED and crossing everything for the announcement on the 16th July. Daniel Butterworth is a local artist and teaches at Kyneton Primary School. He approached Annie about painting her portraiture and after the two spent some time together Daniel created this masterpiece capturing Annie in the only solace spot during working hours where she could gather her thoughts!!!
