Ten year anniversary
We’re excited to announce that we’re now open for ordering your Christmas ham and treats. It’s our tenth year of supplying Christmas hams and many of our original customers are still regular purchasers. Over the years Mount Gnomon Farm has changed quite dramatically, we’ve built a butchery/restaurant, expanded our products, engaged the community and have gone from about ten pigs to several hundred – it’s been an amazing journey.
To celebrate ten years and to thank our customers for their amazing ongoing support and loyalty we’re throwing a feast at the farm for people that have purchased our Christmas orders. We would love to welcome you to the farm for a farm tour, look behind the scenes and a feast prepared by us using produce from our farm and kitchen garden.
We’ve scheduled this for 6:00 pm Saturday the 9th of February, in the New Year, when we’ve all recovered from the festive season madness. If you would like to attend this event, please add the event to your cart before checking out.
We look forward to celebrating with you, because without you there wouldn’t be Mount Gnomon Farm.
Our Christmas products
While the farm has undergone a lot of change and development the one thing that has remained the same has been our ham. Its still made from our beautiful rare breed free range pigs and we’ve kept the same recipe and price per kg since our first year.
This year we’re offering our usual range of delicious bone-in and boneless leg hams they are smoked with oak and are suitable for either eating fresh or glazing. We will also have pork roasts, charcuterie packs which include some of our famous small goods, along with sausage and BBQ packs for boxing day barbecues. This year barbecue packs include all of our rare breed, beef, pork and lamb. Like previous years there is a ten percent discount on roasts and barbecue packs when ordering a ham.
For the first time, we will offer a rolled porchetta roast. It’s a classic Italian roast pork dish, we will prepare it by rolling one of our rare breed pork loins with spices and fresh herbs from the garden.
Pick up dates and locations
This year’s orders are similar to the past where we’ve arranged pick up dates at the Launceston and Hobart farmers markets. If you’re on the North West Coast we would love you to pick up at the farm butchery.
If these pick up locations and dates aren’t suitable we can arrange alternate dates and deliveries.
For Melbourne based customers we would love for you to again pick up your orders at the SRT depot.
I urge you to order your Christmas meat promptly, because we have a limited number of pigs out in the paddock, and first in – best fed!
We’re trialing an online shop for the first time to hopefully allow for easier ordering and to make it easier to pay a deposit to secure your order. You just have to add the different option to your cart.
Don’t stress if you haven’t heard from us straight away when you have placed your order. We will be in contact shortly.
Please give us a call on 0448 067 779 if you have any questions.
