Innisplain horse stud hosts Eat Local event at Royston House

ROYSTON House at Innisplain held its first Eat Local event this year, with a sunset dinner at the homestead on July 5.

The house is a large Queenslander style home with high ceilings and a full wraparound veranda that affords guests magnificent views of the Scenic Rim at sunset.

Part of the Royston Stud thoroughbred property operated by the Kelly family for the past 30 years, Royston House is a popular wedding venue.

Bronwyn Kelly said although the family was still working the farm they, like other properties in the region, had decided to diversify to survive.

The menu for the evening included a mixed artisan charcuterie board served on wine barrels to watch the sunset, wood fired ragout of smoked chorizo and ham hock, charred vegetables, Asado of Running Creek tomahawk steak and fire warmed Witches Chase Tamembert cheese served with local honey, thyme and warm baguettes.
