Picnic Fare Menu
It’s been over 20 years since the renowned Pheasant Farm Restaurant came to an end, and what many might not know is that before it was a restaurant, it was a Farm Shop and that now as a Farm Shop again, we have truly come full circle.
It’s all about visiting to see where it all began, and tasting all the products. In fact, this is the only place in Australia where you have the chance to see and try just about every product we make. Because of the relaxed and informal nature of the Farm Shop, no bookings are required for individual visitors.
You might wander around the dam and get the feeling of the Barossa country side, or if you’re ready for a feed; a good tasty lunch, or just coffee and cake. It’s all simple country seasonal dishes.
You can choose from picnic baskets, including a special offer for children, framed around our Pheasant Farm Pate or Dukkah with accompaniments to suit them.
During Winter there will be a rotation of regular favourites including Soup of the Day, a Lamb & Romesco Pie, Saskia Beer’s Chicken & Tarragon mix in puff pastry; a Pumpkin & Feta tart, or one of our beautifully made Vegetarian dips with a lentil salad and grilled sourdough to choose from, served very casually on our enamel plates in almost picnic style.

We proudly use as much local produce as we can; Barossa Coffee Roasters for our coffee, local Scullery Made teas, Kernich’s of Greenock un-homogenised Jersey milk, Careme pastry, Barossa Valley Cheese and Saskia’s chicken, along with our own of course.
We try to accommodate every person that comes, however if you are travelling with 8 or 10 friends we will do our very best to pull tables together for you but the earlier or later you come the easier it will be. The busiest time of day is between 12.30 and 2.30 p.m. We want every person that visits to have a really good country experience.
Don’t forget our Verjuice demonstration every day - it too is a bit of history.
