A High Country Life
Tales & Recipes from a NZ Sheep Station


A High Country memoir of life through the seasons on a large sheep station, with delicious recipes.

Life on Otematata Station, a 40,000 hectare high country station in Otago, is busy and varied. Philippa Cameron and her husband, Joe, who is the fifth generation to work the farm, help care for this vast tract of land with 30,000 merino sheep and 500 head of cattle.

It's a sparse environment completely at the mercy of the elements, bringing with it many challenges and seasonal demands. Told through the eyes of Philippa in her role as station cook, this is the story of mustering in autumn, lambing in spring, the freezing days of winter and the scorching heat of summer.
Seasonal recipes which are fail safe and adaptable, ready to feed a hungry team of musterers or your hungry team at home or in the office.
