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.

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.

The national winners will be announced in August.

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)
  • garlic
  • 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)
  • lemon
  • 4 cos lettuce
  • 4 quail eggs

Method:

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.
