Cow and Calf Hotel's inaugural grazing day a great success

People right across the central west soaked up the sun at the Cow and Calf on Saturday for the inaugural long lunch grazing day.

It was a perfect winter's day which boasted not only a smorgasbord of delicious nibblies, but craft beer from Orange's Pioneer Brewing Co and wine from Wellington's D'Aquino's Liquor.

Patrons enjoyed a fabulous day of live music that continued well into the night. Singer Millie Mills opened, and Trundle duo Tom and Holly also performed. The night was finished off with entertainment by Darryl Towney.

The event was the first of its kind for the popular local Hotel, but it won't be the last, according to Cow and Calf owner Kellie Gersbach.

"It's important to support local... and it gives Wellington some options rather than going away," she said.

"We also wanted to try and bring more music to the pub and into the town."

As well as locally, guests came from Peak Hill, Orange, Mudgee and Dubbo to attend the event.
