Free Range Heritage Produce, Cider and Functions

Separator

Mount Gnomon Farm rests against the Dial Range – a tract of wilderness that stretches from Penguin to Cradle Mountain in Tasmania’s north-west.

Our farm rests again the backdrop of the stunning Dial Range just south of Penguin. Our story starts over 11 years ago where we set out to promote ethical farming and become Tasmania’s first free range commercial pig farm. We supported rare breeds selling free range pork products into some of Australia’s finest restaurants. The farm and business has now developed and evolved into something much larger than we ever anticipated. In addition to an on farm butchery it has an on farm restaurant and a new barn for functions and events. This combined with beautiful gardens and a 1000 tree cider orchard has made it become both a beautiful event space and place to visit. The farm has had a focus on not only producing ethical produce but engaging the community in the story behind the produce. This is why the farm regularly has open days and farm tours. If you haven’t visited us at the farm you have probably heard us telling our story at one of the many food festivals and farmers markets held around Tasmania. Recently we have turned our attention into our home delivery service where we deliver our produce and other local north west produce to households around Tasmania.

We would love you to follow our adventure through social media. You can see what we’re doing today by searching for us on Instagram and Facebook, we update regularly and promote our events by creating an event page on Facebook.

Farm to Ferment – Open Day!

October 18 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

THE BARN DOOR CABARET

October 23 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

We’re launching our barn!

Our new barn is creating a real buzz in the local community and we’re receiving lots of bookings for birthday parties, Christmas functions and weddings! It’s reassuring to see how popular the space is going to become, it’s been a massive project particularly in the middle of a pandemic. We recently dressed up the barn for a fake wedding to capture photos for promotional material and it looked so amazing.

The best news is that we’re officially launching our barn at our Farm to Ferment Open Day on the 18th of October. The open day ran in combination with FermenTas will bring together experts in fermentation from cheese makers, sour dough, salami, cider, gin and kim chi. The open day was originally scheduled for late March but was postponed in March due to covid. In addition to educational talks on fermentation, Tino Carnivale from Gardening Australia will be joining us in the garden.

While that’s exciting, we’re even more excited about hosting our first official functions in the barn the following weekend. The barn will come alive with three cabaret shows involving internationally acclaimed circus performers! It’s going to be an amazing and unique event for the region that we anticipate will be held quarterly. The grand scale of the barn allows us to host 180 people with social distancing, while it’s height of over 8 metres provides the opportunity for aerialists.

Performers include world leading juggler Joe Fisher, Las Vegas legend Denis lock, Aerialists Spenser Inwood and emerging Hobart musician Sabine Bester.
Like most Tasmanian exports, these entertainers earnt there reputation on the international stage and we’re so lucky to have them home to raise the roof on the new barn!
The inaugural cabaret event is being produced by Clare Spillman who brings with her over 15 years of experience producing commercial theatre, cabaret and events.

Our restaurant and garden bar will be open on the night.

This is a covid safe event with limited seated tickets and tables.

Tickets are $45 per a person.
Group bookings recommended.
If you book a table of ten every member receives a glass of Barringwood wine on arrival.

We look forward to seeing you at curtain up.
