Welcome to our First Packhouse Family Update!

Welcome To Our Blog / Updates!

Welcome to the first of our Weekly Packhouse Family Updates. We hope you will enjoy reading about what’s happening here at The Packhouse.

This week has been difficult with many kitchen staff away sick, while Annie our Kitchen Manager is overseas.

We’re grateful to all of our staff who have worked longer hours to hold it all together this last week ensuring that we still have quality food, and enough of it!

You may have heard that we have put The Packhouse property on the market with the Bayleys team.  We’ve been running the Market, Café & Bakery  here for almost 10 years.  We’re both getting on – long in the tooth – elderly, past our prime, etc, and we have 6 children and 11 grandchildren.

Although we’ve loved running the Market and the Café, we feel it is time to spend more time with our family and help them however we can. 
We will update you on any progress (if any) which occurs with regard to the sale.
