Oh wow! That really says it all, but I will expand. We went for lunch on Saturday and the experience was delicious, in every sense. You can actually feel the tension leaving you as you drive the dirt road past huge flocks of woolly sheep towards the mountains. The farm and homestead are totally exquisite (next visit needs an extra...
