The Baylies story is one of love and commitment to a cause; an unrelenting passion for quality, tradition, excellence and of course amazing food. Inspired by the vision of owners Robert and Angela Bell, the Baylies’ journey began in a small kitchen; quickly transforming into a small local bakery based in Strathalbyn, South Australia.
Over a short period of time, the team at Baylies built an unmatched reputation for quality in the local area – and word began to spread across the country. As the grapevine worked its wonders the business began securing larger contracts and a reputation for delivering the extraordinary. In 2004, the business moved to its current location at Woodside, incorporating a purpose-built industrial kitchen and distribution centre to support its flourishing client base including a contract to supply Qantas with plain lavash.
Over the years, the business has remained a family affair and it continues to grow from strength to strength. Using Robert’s vast experience and knowledge as a chef, the team are unrelenting in the pursuit of their vision; to create extraordinary food from traditional recipes delivered with excellence and passion.
Sunny Hill Farm was settled in 1872 by the Colliver family and has remained in that name until this day. The current owner and descendant Sam Colliver and his wife Olivia are the founders, owners, and operators of Sunny Hill Distillery. The farm is a broadacre cereal cropping venture where part of the grain that is produced is then used in the distillery to make quality craft spirits.
Come and enjoy our relaxed atmosphere with comfortable seating and large range of drinks.
If you are looking for a good day out with friends look no further than Sunny Hill. We have a very extensive range of cocktails using our own spirits and if that doesn’t tickle your fancy we have a fully stocked bar with local craft beer, wine, and cider. Also available are light snacks including a sharing platter for 2, chips, cheese, dip, and crackers. Please feel free to bring your own platter/picnic lunch with you if preferred. The outside area includes a large deck and lawn area which is a great place for the kids to play or sit with your dog and enjoy the spectacular views. Feel free to bring your own picnic blanket/umbrella etc.
