By Philippa Cameron

A High Country memoir of life through the seasons on a large sheep station, with delicious recipes.

Life on Otematata Station, a 40,000 hectare high country station in Otago, is busy and varied. Philippa Cameron and her husband, Joe, who is the fifth generation to work the farm, help care for this vast tract of land with 30,000 merino sheep and 500 head of cattle.

It's a sparse environment completely at the mercy of the elements, bringing with it many challenges and seasonal demands. Told through the eyes of Philippa in her role as station cook, this is the story of mustering in autumn, lambing in spring, the freezing days of winter and the scorching heat of summer.

Along with looking after her two small girls, her garden and various animals, Philippa feeds the teams of workers. She collects and shares a selection of delicious, hearty recipes with other farm cooks on her popular Instagram page @whats_for_smoko. This book also features Philippa's most trusted recipes, tested on many approving musterers.

Fulfilment 

We endeavour to despatch all web-store orders within 1-2 working days. If, for any reason, we cannot achieve this we will let you know.  We process orders during weekday shop hours (10-5, Mon-Fri). Orders placed on weekends and public holidays will be processed and despatched on the next working day. 

Delivery

All orders are shipped via courier and you will receive an email or text notification once despatched - this will include your tracking details.

As we ship from a small village at the bottom of the world, delivery times are sometimes not as snappy as in metro areas. However, if all goes to plan, South Island (non-RD) customers can reasonably expect delivery within 1-3 working days and North Island (non-RD) customers will need to add 2 days to this estimate.

Packages require signature upon delivery so please specify an address that is occupied during normal business hours (9-5, Mon-Fri). In the event of failed delivery attempts (card to call) you may have to arrange a delivery time directly with the courier, or collect from the depot. We are not responsible for any costs or inconvenience incurred due to delivery failure of this nature.

PO Boxes

We cannot deliver to PO boxes.  If you nominate a PO box your order fulfilment may be delayed until we arrange an alternative delivery address.
