Heatherbrae’s Pies, Sutton Forest

Pie Time Just Got Real!
Heatherbraes Pies

It was a long 26km out to Heatherbrae’s Pies Sutton Forest. Winding country roads were well suited to a Sunday motorcycle ride. Alas, I’d have to proceed on two feet! Plenty to see with alpaca farms and cellar doors in abundance particularly along the final stretch of the run along Sallys Corner Road. The Pinot grape being the pick of this cool climate region.

Heatherbrae’s Pies is the most convenient location to grab a pie on the Hume Highway between Sydney and Canberra. We visited on a Sunday and they were doing a roaring weekend trade. With plenty of indoor seating, there is plenty of room to dine-in to take a break from the road. You can also get a shot next to the iconic FJ Holden ute fitted with a pie warmer on the back.

Running Stats:

  • Pie Time: 2:25 mins

Pie Charts:

A wide selection of pies was available from the standard issue to gourmet. Two specials were on offer in celebration of Pie Time. So it was decided we’d go with the specials

  • Pies: Beef Burgundy; Duck with Lemon Pepper.
  • Pastry: Pastry was soft and flaky, no complaints!
  • Filling: The duck and lemon pepper wasn’t our favourite filling, the beef & burgundy though was a hearty winter warmer to take the chill out of the bones. There are so many options to try at Heatherbrea’s Pies that I can’t imagine anyone goes away disappointed.
  • Cost: $7 for the special pies of the week.
  • Sauce tax: None! Tomato & BBQ sauce available in abundance at the self-serve counter.

Worth every kilometre!

Tractorless Vineyard

We stopped into the Tractorless vineyard cellar door in Suton Forest after the run. The unique ‘tractorless’ farming technique uses sheep, designed to provide a sustainable way of producing grapes and without the use of pesticides. We’ll be doing a special write up on Tractorless Vineyard shortly. Also look out to their bonfire night on 9 June!

Southern Highlands Pie Trail Run

The Southern ‘Pielands’ Trail Run went for the month of June. As ambassadors for ‘Pie time’ we ran to all of the 26 bakeries on the official Pie Trail to see what they had to offer. See our reviews of all 26 bakeries, their stories and their pies.

Ever since venturing out the back gate into the bush as a kid, I've had a curiosity to escape and explore as often as I could. It's fair to say that my curiosity has continued to grow instead of fade as the years go on. Sixty countries later it was about time to turn a few scribbled notes into some legible stories and tips to share for anyone with a similar curiosity as me.
