Last weekend I was lucky enough to be involved in the launch of the butchery and restaurant at Mount Gnomon Farm. It was a grand day indeed - lots and lots of visitors, lots of lovely food and drink and a typically Tasmanian day weather-wise. It started out misty and moody (but not cold) and by the afternoon the fog had lifted and the sun shone warmly down on everyone. (Oooh-er, isn't that poetic?!)
The kidlets were suitably impressed by the piglets (and lamblets). And my they were cute.
During the morning, Guy and Eliza spent some time talking about the whole process of creating the on-site butchery and restaurant. They talked about their hopes and dreams for the development and it was clear they are very excited about the possibilities it holds. One of which may be workshops and classes, teaching people how to make sausages (for example.) If you are a local and have some ideas for what they can offer the community - make sure you send them an email so they can consider it.
The community-mindedness (is that a word?) of the whole day really struck me. I'm so incredibly pleased that people like these guys are doing what they're doing around here. We all know how lucky we really are to live in this part of the world and being able to share that, with locals and visitors alike has to be the way forward, surely?
At the moment, the restaurant will be open for lunch on weekends and I might be a bit biased and all, but seriously you need to go along and check it out.
Big, big thanks to Eliza and Guy for letting me be involved on the day - it was a brilliant experience!
