AJ & CS Milne Butchers, Hillston
Some things are worth travelling for and, as many have discovered, it is worth the journey to Hillston to purchase red gum smoked smallgoods and legendary sausages from local provedores, Colleen and Tony Milne and Kevin Hall.
Since 1986, Colleen and Tony have served the Hillston community, Riverina locals, grey nomads, visiting corporates and out-of-towners with quality meats from their little blue and white striped butchery shop located on High Street. At the centre of their success is their unrelenting focus on quality, coupled with a desire to experiment with traditional and modern butchering techniques.
Along with their own pork line, whole roast meats and famous smoked varieties of classic cuts, the Milnes have perfected the art of sausage making, with more than 15 different varieties on offer – all gluten-free no less. With every customer having their favourite, from beef and bacon, cracked pepper and Worchester, to the ‘aussiemite’ (vegemite and cheese), Malaysian satay and, of course, traditional beef. Many former Hillston residents bulk-buy from the store when the opportunity presents to pass through the town – some ordering up to 20 kilograms of sausages at a time.
A visit to the Hillston butcher is a must for those in pursuit of the perfect sausage.
