WORDS & PHOTOGRAPHY

Pete Thornton

what pete shot

A ‘mostly’ portrait and ‘brief’ interview series by professional photographer Pete Thornton exploring the idea that one image has the power to tell the whole story.

Each ‘sitter’ suggests the next person to be photographed in this series, and thus ensues an interesting and unknown trail of Barossa identities to come.

Stay tuned… Pete

Ellen Chatterton

sheep farmer

Ellen has embarked on a unique venture and created a nice niche for herself in the sheep dairy market. These sheep are not what you may be used to in the Australian landscape, like Merino. Ellen is building a flock mixed with East Friesian and Awassi breeds (from the middle east) renowned for their milking ability, calm nature and consistent output.

The end product being a mix of cheeses, yoghurts and milk are being snapped up at the Adelaide Farmers Market,
Wayville Showgrounds and sought after by many restaurants. It’s all made on farm in her small but growing production facility out the back of Lyndoch.
