More information here.

Glenmore House Kitchen Garden Tour and Afternoon Tea with Mickey Robertson
Almost 30 years ago, Larry and Mickey Robertson discovered a collection of dilapidated, early colonial vernacular farm buildings in the foothills of the Razorback Range near Camden. Since then, the original farmhouse has been restored and extended, and the former cowshed, dairy, stable, hay shed, barn, store room and other outbuildings given new purpose. Gradually, all have been linked together by new fences, walls, paths, steps, hedges and gardens. The result is a small, unique and charming country property nestled into a landscape of delightful rise and fall on the very edge of Sydney.
Time: 3pm
Location: Glenmore House, Moores Way, Glenmore.
Price: $35 includes kitchen garden tour and a seasonal afternoon tea.
