Then on to the Hay Shed Hill winery we went, what a fabulous place, full of history. This property was first settled in the 1920’s, with the expectations of clearing and farming. The farm was initially a cattle farm, parts of the farm are heritage listed such as the wooden cattle ramp
|Heritage listed cattle ramp, note the chook’s under the bush on the right|
|What a fabulous chimney|
|I was a bit sneaky|
So the homestead was built, yes that is the original above. The current owners had a visit from one of the owners who remembered her husband building the car port addition.
When the current owners were clearing out the sheds they came across a large pile of Pitch Forks that had a bend in the spokes, when researched they discovered that there was an attempt at growing potatoes and the forks were designed for harvesting the potatoes. Unfortunately they failed as they planted in the gully (Doh!!), (you live and learn) and the potato crop drowned. I like how they have celebrated the past with the hedge
|The fabulous fork’s, look closer, they are on either side of the red hedge|
|Part of the vines, some are also heritage listed|
Such a beautiful homestead the wines were a bit off all right also, bought a few!!!
|The winery, that’s LOL coming out|
|Here we have BTM & and DTB. I will explain later|
