The Prossers are cooking up more than just award-winning jam – Kathy’s recipe recently secured bronze at the Sydney Fine Food Show, from over 1000 entrants – in Mypolonga, as the producers have shifted their focus to establish a multi-purpose function complex.
Two years ago Paul and Kathy Prosser, of Aussie Apricots, acquired a 40-acre property in Mypolonga with the intention of converting an old homestead into a convention centre complete with a motor museum, cinema/presentation room and barbecue area.
Mr Prosser said an existing shed on the property had already been turned into a barbecue facility, housed in a log cabin.
“The intention for that space is that any clubs, whether it’s a garden club, 4WD club or whoever, can use it for meetings or gatherings,” he said.
“When then have the area which we refer to as the cinema where we will do powerpoint displays for visitors and where businesses or organisations can host meetings.”
Mr Prosser said work has commenced on renovating the stone home – which was burned down 74 years ago – to turn it into the convention centre.
“We plan on opening the house right up and taking down the walls on the top storey,” Mr Prosser said.
“It will have a catering kitchen, so it can be used for weddings and other events. “The bottom story, which is more or less a cellar and goes through the entirety of the house, will be a history museum showcasing the history of the local area and old farming tools.”
Mrs Prosser indicated that another shed would be constructed on the property and will house a further 15 vintage vehicles – donated to the Prossers from a family in the Adelaide Hills.
“We’ve entered into an eight year agreement with the owners of these vintage vehicles, with the possibility of extending that, to store the vehicles on our property and showcase them to the public,” she said.
