Welcome!

G’day folks, my name is Cindy Cross and I’d like to welcome you to my business / heart and soul:

The Post and Rail – Potager and Pantry

It is a Cooking and Gardening School set on a 5 acre picturesque property in Compton South Australia, just 10 mins from the centre of Mount Gambier.

“One of the wonderful things about living in Australia is that the growing season is fantastic and long.  There is barely a time when something isn’t coming out of the garden.”

GIFT CERTIFICATES NOW AVAILABLE!

COOKING & GARDENING SCHOOL

I am a huge fan of Heirloom Fruits and Vegetables.

Their flavour and goodness far outweighs the recent hybrids and I also love the different colours that you can get.

I will try growing nearly anything in the garden, sometimes not even expecting a result, but often being pleasantly surprised.

I like to save seed of the things I have grown successfully, and this means putting up with a somewhat scraggly plant as it is dying off and preparing its seed for the following season.

I started making Preserves and Catering from my Apsley home a few years before I started the Farm Shop, Nursery and Café. I had no café experience, or formal cooking training. Just a home cook with a passion for food.
