Hutton Vale Farm
Sunday lunch in the Barossa Valley
Hutton Vale Farm and Aldinga Aero Club invite pilots and their families and friends from all aero clubs, flying clubs and other aviation organisations to fly in to Hutton Vale Farm on Sunday, 1st March 2020. If you are unable to fly in, simply take a scenic drive to the Farm.
Hutton Vale Farm is a mixed farm with many facets, including grapes, wool and food growing. The philosophy is to run each arm of the business in a sustainable manner while at the same time entwining them as a whole and offering award-winning wine, lamb, woollen throws and tailored experiences for guests.
Fly in to the Hutton Vale Farm airstrip, nestled amongst some of Australia’s most famous vineyards. Step from your plane just metres from the cellar door to spend a day in the vines and the cellar. Enjoy a fabulous lunch including main course, salads, first glass of wine, soft drinks for pilots and non-drinkers, finishing with platters of cheese and/or sweets, plunger coffee and tea.
A selection of four meals will be distributed alternately around the tables; you are welcome to swap, trade or otherwise exchange with other guests. The selections will comprise:
- Lamb & mild chili gourmet pie
- Chicken & leek gourmet pie
- Beef gourmet pie
- Vegetarian quiche
The cost for the day is $45 per person (children 12 – 18 $25; children under 12 free).
You could even make it a weekend (or longer) trip by staying on the Farm in either the Hutch Hilton, a family-friendly building that is ideal for up to four couples, or the J.H.A. Stone Cellar, a premium two-bedroom ultimate escape. A loan car is available for fly in guests at $50 per day plus fuel for exploring the Barossa region.
Whether you fly or drive, please plan to arrive between 11:00 – 12:00. Departure is at your leisure.
To help with planning and catering, it is necessary to register and pay in advance. Please complete the attached booking form and send it, plus confirmation of your payment, by emailing Hutton Vale Farm not later than Friday 21st February 2020.

How to get to Hutton Vale Farm
The Hutton Vale Farm airfield is a grass airfield with two runways at an elevation of 1240 feet. The primary runway (18/36) is 1000 m with reasonably good approaches and is the preferred runway. The cross strip (09/27) is a little over 800 m but undulating with difficult approaches (high ground and trees) so pilots must exercise caution.
The nearest Avgas supplies are at Parafield, Adelaide, Aldinga, Murray Bridge and Renmark.
Hutton Vale Farm is at 65 Stone Jar Road, Angaston. It is approximately 95 km and 1 hour 30 minutes from the Adelaide CBD.
