It’s easy to think of Moss Vale just as a village in the Highlands but it is much more than that. The agricultural endeavours in and around Moss Vale provide a major opportunity for job creation and growth in the community as the country moves from the mining boom to a dining boom.
Agriculture is an integral part of the commercial and social fabric of Moss Vale. Ever since the early settlers arrived the rural areas around Moss Vale have provided an abundance of wealth and opportunity to the community.
The Southern Highland Food and Wine Clusters
A great opportunity to experience the culinary delights of the rural Southern Highlands, this is an initiative of the Moss Vale & Rural Chamber of Commerce initiated by Brigid Kennedy of The Loch at Berrima.
There will ultimately be 9 clusters of food and wine producers, from restaurants and wineries to food producers in the regional area surrounding Moss Vale. The first of these, the Joadja Cluster was launched in November 2015. The Moss Vale Cluster is due to launch in February 2016 with the other 7 rolling out progressively over the year.
