Barossa Unearthed: Michael Wohlstadt


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

Michael Wohlstadt, The Dairyman

ARTIsan food creator & farmer

Michael wears many hats on his property in the foothills near Tweedies Gully, Pewsey Vale and they all stem from a passion to create produce of the highest standard. Creating and making food with passion, care and a deft hand – Michael understands the importance of raising his animals ethically, with the ability to free range and that great food comes from this love that is put into the process.

Michael milks his small herd of jersey cows daily, with the milk producing rich beautiful butter, cream and a source of feed for his Berkshire, Tamworth and Hampshire Black and Red Pigs’, creating an intensely flavoured pork.

Michael has recently added oyster mushrooms to the mix of what he produces – yet another hat that he has to juggle – oh, then there’s the amazing accommodation options where people can stay and get the full experience of a beautiful farm life!
