Callington Mill is a working Georgian windmill built in 1837. The restoration of Callington Mill to its former glory was completed in 2010 and the first turning of its sails after being dormant for so many years was a magnificent sight.
The Callington Mill, in the township of Oatlands, Tasmania and was fully restored to full working condition in 2010 after may years of lying dormant. The mill is the only fully working wind driven tower mill in the Southern Hemisphere. Callington Mill was built in 1837, here is the story behind this iconic structure…
John Vincent was born in 1779 in Cornwall, England. In 1803 he married in London Susannah Rivers who was the same age. Over the next twenty years the couple had seven children while they were living in England. In 1823 at the age of 44, they decided to move to Tasmania. They immigrated with their children on the ship Elizabeth which arrived in Hobart in 1823. After they came to Tasmania they had two more children.
Over the next decade John became the proprietor of two licenced hotels, one in Bothwell called the Norwood Inn and one at Spring Hill called the London. His eldest son John Jubilee Vincent was also an innkeeper and ran the Lake Frederick Inn (later Lake Dulverton Inn) at Oatlands. This hotel still stands today.
In about 1836, at the age of 57, John decided to build the flour windmill at Oatlands. He used the best technology available in this project. It seems that he was very proud of this investment and he announced its opening in the newspaper in 1837. However, his interest in the mill was short-lived and the following year he tried to rent it. He advertised it in the newspaper giving a good description of the mill and its surrounds, it said:
“In its early years, it was considered one of the first rate windmills in the country, and surpassed by none in its situation for business. Fitted up with two pair of good stones, (French burrs,) dressing and smut machines; together with a very respectable dwelling house, attached to which is a counting house and small store, washhouse and servants’ bedroom. On the premises is a good granary, stable, chaise and cart houses, with piggeries and fowl house, and about two acres of garden ground in cultivation. Also, to be let with the above are six Cottages, all occupied, and paying good rents. Application to be made to Mr. John Vincent, the proprietor.”

They grow and produce extra virgin olive oil, table olives, several varieties of lavender, purple garlic, raspberries, blueberries and extra category 1 grade saffron. They built an Alan Scott design wood fired oven and pottery studio on the property.
Crops were selected and planted to have produce in the different seasons on the farm. Lavender, berries and garlic are harvested in the summer, saffron in autumn, and olives in late autumn to winter.
The ethos of Campo de Flori is to be self-sufficient while maintaining a balance ecosystem on the property. Sustainable uses of resources are considered as well as implementing biological farming techniques on the farm. This form of sustainable farming practice not only benefits the environment but delivers top quality farm produce.

Anzac biscuit beer
As Tasmanians turned out in force on Anzac Day to remember the sacrifices of servicemen and women at dawn services and lunch-time parades, one beer brewer chose to honour our diggers in a more innovative way. Launceston boutique beer-maker, Morrison Brewery, created a special beer to mark this most sacred of days. A beer flavoured like…Anzac biscuits. It is described by its creator, Paul Morrison, as a malt heavy creation with notes of coconut and golden syrup: just like its biscuit namesake. This special Anzac biscuit beer was unveiled at Launceston’s Fresh Hop Beer Festival, a three-day event that inspires boutique brewers to create a showcase beer using freshly harvested hops. Taking that to heart, Paul Morrison mixed Ella Hops, recently picked at Bushy Park, with coconut, oats and golden syrup to create his biscuity brew. Don’t ever expect it to take the place of that enduring Anzac tipple – the rum toddy –but it is certainly an interesting way to raise a glass to our diggers.

Finally…recipe by popular demand
We have been inundated with requests for the recipe for Ana Pimenta’s Beef Tartare. It featured on our recent King Island video where chef Tetsuya Wakuda and Ray Martin went searching for the world’s best beef and discovered Ana and husband Tom who run a cattle property and farms tours.
Here it is, enjoy!
Ingredients for Ana’s Beef Tartare:
- 250g flat iron steak (from oyster blade)
- olive oil
- King Island blue cheese (just a little)
- mayo (Ana makes her own - 1 egg, extra virgin olive oil, 1tsp sugar, pinch of salt and pepper and white balsamic vinegar)
- 4 cos lettuce
- 4 quail eggs
Blue mayo: Mix mayo and blue cheese (at room temperature) to a paste consistency.
Beef: Firstly, roast some whole garlic covered in olive oil in the oven until soft and slightly brown. Once roasted, peel garlic and keep along with the olive oil for later (these will be used to season the meat). Beef should be from your butcher and very fresh. One hour before serving cut the beef into very small cubes of about 0.5cm only (it helps if meat is very cold). To season the beef gently mix the olive oil and roasted garlic, salt and pepper and a splash of lemon juice.
Quail eggs: In gently boiling water cook the eggs for 2 min (time it) then put them straight in icy water. Peel them very carefully (the yolk will be runny).
Assembly: On top of the lettuce put a tsp of blue mayo, add beef on top of the mayo, then open quail egg.
As with any recipe, taste at every step to see if it needs more salt, pepper or any other ingredients.
Enjoy with a glass of Tasmanian Pinot.
Footnote: Congratulations to Ana who was selected as one of three Tasmanian finalists in the prestigious AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award.

Historic harvest at Government House
Tasmania’s grape harvest is in full swing, and this year the state’s thriving wine industry has a new player on the block – Government House. In a historic event, the first grapes grown in the stately gardens of Hobart’s Government House have been plucked off the vines. The grapes were planted with much fanfare three years ago: a total of 1500 merlot, riesling and cabernet vines added to the rolling lawns. Head gardener at Government House, Ben Essex, told ABC Rural he is excited about overseeing the historic harvest: “I have only been here just over a month and I can’t believe the first big job is to make sure the grape harvest goes smoothly.” He added the wines would be made off-site pointing to the bumper crop: “We are expecting to pick around five bins of riesling grapes today which then will be processed by Winemaking Tasmania at Cambridge.” While the finished product is still a few years in the making, Governor Kate Warner has already planned to serve her own wine with pride to the thousands of people who visit Government House each year. Although what will be on the label is still a matter of conjecture.
