Meet the milk maid

Bronwyn is the backbone of the dairy and home farm. In addition to mother of 2, wife, Chefs tool box cookware consultant, and running the home, growing veggies and gardening, Bron takes under her wing the day to day running of the property.

Now where do I start. Every business needs someone behind the scenes making sure things happen - well that's my Bron. She's an ideas person, and once she sets her mind to something, look out! While the cat is away at Red Hill during the day making cheese, the mouse (who is not a broad spectrum cheese-eater but has specific favorites, in particular sheep yogurt) keeps the diverse farm community watered, fed and happy.

Locals are amazed at what Bron puts her hand to, one day seeing her mowing the paddocks, and the next undertaking building renovation projects, mucking out the lambs barn, feeding, drafting sheep, or organising tradesmen - all the things that have to be done on a farm. While her friends are putting on their faces, Bron is putting on milking clusters, mustering takes the place of long lunches, and as dusk falls she is putting animals to bed, but still finds time to tuck the kids in on school nights as well.

Who knows where the energy comes from but one thing for sure, Red Hill wouldn't have sheep cheese were it not for the efforts of Bronwyn. Thank you for your efforts, from all at Red Hill Cheese, the customers and you loving husband Burke XOX.
