A chilling announcement …

Snowgums Group owners, Mark & Lisa Smith have just returned from a buyer trip to Guangzhou, China to launch amongst other things Snowgums Ice. Shipping containers of equipment are on their way to Mt Canobolas.

The trips purpose was to procure event assets ready for the launch of Snowgums Events. We’ll be hosting rustic marquee weddings under the banner of Snowgums Events on the lush volcanic slopes of Mt. Canobolas.  Further blogs listing items purchased will be published in over coming weeks.

Mark in particular is excited about what is hidden away in these boxes.  To his knowledge its the only (and probably the largest capacity) cubed ice machine operating on the slope of Mt. Canobolas.

The machine’s specs enable it to produce about half a tonne (500kg) of cubed Snowgums Ice per day. 

That’s around 100 x 5kg bags per day, enough to chill a serious amount of beer, wine, sparkling or otherwise.

Snowgums’ is blessed with amazing water resources. 

Snowgums water assets

We drilled a bore in June 2017 and hit the jackpot.  Our drillers divined (sometimes called water dowsing) 2 x 20m (each) permanently flowing creeks intersected under our land.

“It was quite amazing.  One of our neighbours up the hill has now drilled in 4 spots, at huge expense, and found 4 separate piles of dust, so we count our blessings”, Mark said.

Snowgums spring water is pumped from deep underground and consumed by thirsty guest and soon shall be frozen into cubed ice for consumption.

“There’ll be a serious amount of drinks chilled by Snowgum Ice’ machine” Mark said.  “Probably a fair few hangovers as a result?” he continued.

What’s new at Snowgums Events?

Mark, a final year law student at the University of Sydney and resident of Beecroft, is hoping to more permanently be based at Snowgums from February 2019. This will assist Snowgums Events to better coordinate and host some of the events our guests are planning.

“It must be a New Year’s thing, our website has been hit hard by couples planning to wed this year and next for about a month straight.  It’s been quite amazing,” Mark said.

Mark hopes spending more time at Nashdale will give him the chance to meet more surround local business owners. He’d like to supply ice to them for their events and private usages and look for ways to support each others businesses. These could be local wineries, Nashdale Hall, Nashdale School or private persons wanting spring ice available close at hand.  Snowgums plans to buy plenty of local wines and are gearing up to obtain a liquor licence in order to meet event demand.

About Mt Canobolas

According to Wiradjuri legend, Mt. Canobolas is a place renowned for healing. It has many native plant species, including some species unique to the mountain.

Mark believes, as do the Wiradjuri people, that the soils of the mountain are blessed. This is evidenced from the fertile and productive agriculture grown nearby.  Mark hopes Snowgums Ice, made from Canobolas underground spring waters, will also have similar rich, fertile and beneficial properties.

Announcing Snowgums Barn

Snowgums Group today has published its plans for agribusiness use of the Snowgums site, located at 299 Nancarrow Lane, Nashdale – just a short drive out of Orange, NSW.

Owners Mark & Lisa Smith have lodged with Cabonne Council today their development application under its Agribusiness brand, Snowgums Barn.

The development seeks consent for:

  • An agricultural produce storehouse – intended for storage of barleys, hops, bulk wine storage, fodders and similar.
  • Food processing, commercial kitchen and cold storage.
  • Staff and guest amenities.

The food processing use is located adjacent to Orange’s cherry, apple and fruit and vegetable production regions and expects to operate on a seasonal basis, processed fruits being frozen, stored and later value added.

Out of season, Mark & Lisa seek approval to establish a micro-brewery to produce beers for the Orange ‘wine-trail’ as a little bit of something different.  In readiness, Mark has registered the brand Canobolas Brewing, with all inputs grown and brewed on the slopes of the rich volcanic soils of Mt. Canobolas.

“It should be something unique, something you can only enjoy in our region, from our region.  The Kosciuszko beer of the Central West.  I actually swim laps with a guy called Chuck Hahn who brewed that beer, which I love, and it got me thinking … why not do something that is uniquely the beer taste of our region?  We’ve got ”

The barn will include a small beer tasting area and cellar door open to visitors as they tour the nearby Printhie, De Salis, Nashdale Lane, Rowlee and other vineyards.

“It’ll be intimate with outstanding rural landscape views over the district”, Smith said.
