Southern Highlands Food & Wine Clusters | MOSS VALE CLUSTER
Moss Vale Cluster



#1 reason to visit… Moss Vale Cluster

Ideal touring country for lovers of fine food and wine, the Moss Vale Food and Wine Cluster has a distinctive English Village charm with its high country climate, rolling pastures and winding country roads lined with European trees and dotted with small-farm gates. The farmers and foodies of the Moss Vale cluster have banded together to bring an experience of high quality organic farm gates, wonderfully creative artisans and unforgettable ‘paddock to plate’ dining to the historic heart of Moss Vale.

The downloadable Moss Vale Food and Wine Cluster Map takes you straight to the farm-gate of passionate local producers like Maughers Meats where you can buy direct and get to know the growers; or visit the Railway Street Farmers Market on Thursdays for some real food finds like fragrant Park Hill Garlic. For a fresh take on the season’s farm harvest, enjoy paddock-to-plate cooking classes at Fox Hill Farm, dining; grazing plates at Tooses Wine Bar; relax with a local wine and taste plate on the Farm Club Tea House verandahs or linger in the Katers Larder Courtyard and farm garden of Peppers Manor House.

For a complete pastoral-living experience, visit our stays page and discover a variety of accommodation options on working farms; a contemporary designer-lifestyle cottage or decadent Garden Wing Deluxe suites.
