Hawthorne Hill Farm

At Hawthorne Hill Farm, we grow and make seriously delicious food. When we discovered the Hawthorne plant, our products were born and our business began soon after.

Our first and flagship product is our Tasmanian Hawthorne Paste. It is similar in use to fig or quince paste but has its own unique wild zingy flavour. It partners perfectly with cheeses and meats and can form the basis of a very special jus or glaze. It is available in Original and Sugar Free recipes.
Our Sugar Free range of products uses pharmaceutical grade xylitol to replace cane sugar. This makes them ideal for diabetics and those who are trying to take sugar and carbs out of their diet. Xylitol is a great, all natural sweetener that is sourced from birch trees our corn cobs. We use the corn cob variety because it suits our recipes very well and is a sustainably sourced product.
We also make a range of jams and jellies, including Hawthorne jam from fruit grown on our farm our sourced from local producers. These are also available in Original and Sugar Free recipes. We also use our Hawthorne jam to make some lovely little shortbread cookies in two styles.
We've recently launched a food van with a view to bringing a paddock-to-plate experience to the people of North East Tasmania.
We love living and working on our little farm and are really pleased that people love the food that we make.

Home Hill Wines

Rosemary & Terry Bennett, the proprietors of Home Hill, look down on the vineyard from their home, pinch themselves, and wonder how their relaxing hobby farm of six rows of vines has turned into an award winning vineyard that produces some of Australia’s top quality Pinot Noir.

Apples were once produced on the site of the vineyard, along with memories of the years gone by when their three young children were placed in bulk bins to entertain themselves while they harvested their crops of apples.

Now their youngest son, Sean, assists Terry with the careful planning and assiduous cropping levels of the 6 hectare vineyard. Daughter Kelly left her profession as a nurse and teamed up with the family to assist in the marketing of wine and managing of the Restaurant.

The family members now love to share their beautiful property with visitors. They consider Home Hill to be the perfect place to celebrate the good things in life.

Tetsuya is number one - again!

The restaurant of iconic chef – and Brand Tasmania Ambassador – Tetsuya Wakuda, has once again been named as the best in Australia. And, fittingly it was the backdrop for a major investment dinner recently hosted by Tasmanian Premier Will Hodgman, in conjunction with Brand Tasmania. Tetsuya’s eponymous Sydney establishment has just won Restaurant of the Year at the Savour Australia Restaurant and Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence. The prestigious award is the latest in a long list of accolades that Tetsuya has collected since opening in 1989, and he told Restaurant and Catering Magazine it is a reflection of those around him: “I congratulate my staff. The team won this, not me. A good restaurant is a team effort.” Meantime, Tetsuya has long been a champion of Tasmania which he describes as “beyond organic,” and his restaurant hosted a special dinner showcasing the finest from the island state to potential investors. Premier Will Hodgman led the guest list at Tetsuya’s ‘Taste of Tasmania Dinner: From Sky to Land and Sea’, which featured such exquisite combinations as: Cold Green Pea Soup with Bitter Chocolate Sorbet; Confit of Petuna Ocean Trout with Salad of Apple and Witlof; Poached Lobster in Vanilla with Cannellini Beans and Coffee Vinaigrette; and Chocolate Stone with Fortunato No 4. It was a stunning menu, and further proof that Tetsuya’s really does deserve the title of Australia’s best restaurant.

Tolpuddle chardonnay shines

A Tasmanian vineyard has shone at the 2018 Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. Tolpuddle Vineyard won four major trophies, with its 2017 chardonnay picking up three of the awards: Best Young White Wine; Best Chardonnay; and Best Single Vineyard. Tolpuddle winemaker, Adam Wadewitz said: “I guess we always knew the 2017 vintage was pretty special in Tasmania. The season was astonishing; late and cool, and it produces wines with that rarely seen ‘balance and intensity’ combination.” Tolpuddle Vineyard is located in the Coal River Valley and was established in 1988. It is planted solely with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. Other Tasmanian winners in Melbourne were: The Bay of Fires winery which won the James Halliday Trophy for best pinot noir with its 2017 release; the House of Arras, named Best Sparkling for its chardonnay/pinot noir Grand Vintage 2008; and Eddystone Point, awarded Best Riesling for its 2018 vintage.

New Moo Brew a stout order

As artisan foods and beverages continue to boom across the Island State, a new barrel-aged stout has been launched onto the market, just in time for the festive season. This rich, dense beer has been created by Tasmania’s Moo Brew, that says it will only get better with age. The Moo Brew Imperial Stout – made in collaboration with Sydney’s Archie Rose Distilling Company – has been aged in single malt whisky and ex-bourbon American oak barrels and weighs in at an imposing 10.8% alcohol level. Moo Brew are getting ready for an enthusiastic response. “It’s big,” Moo Brew head brewer Dave Macgill said. “We encourage people to enjoy this beer now, but those partial to cellaring will be rewarded. This stout has a rich, dense palate thanks to the ex-bourbon barrels and Archie Rose whisky, high residual sugar and specialty roasted malts.”
