Oxenberry Farm is the site of a freshwater spring which had long been the source of water for the local Aboriginal population, and was named ‘Blackfellows Well’ by the early British settlers. It still exists on the site not far from the cellar door – some large willow trees mark the spot where it lies. Due to being the only constant drinkable freshwater source for many miles, it was a regular meeting place for the ‘two tribes’, British settlers and Aboriginals alike, and supplied water for the growing community of McLaren Vale for many years.
