Farm acquires an urban café

Weston Farm, north of Hobart, is a family business specialising, in peony roses, extra virgin olive oil, smoked paprika and other fresh farm produce. It now operates Hobart’s Pigeon Hole Café to showcase its quality, seasonal produce. The Goulburn Street café’s menu is ever evolving, driven by the chefs’ knowledge of what the farm is producing through regular visits to source food and to join in farming activities. To keep the café and farm connected, even in lean times, fruit and vegetables are bottled and preserved and made available for purchase by café customers. “Everything at Weston Farm conforms to organic and sustainable farming practices,” co-owner Richard Weston said. “Our business focus is on a true paddock-to-plate experience, based on quality, freshness and customer service. Most of all we love what we do.” Pigeon Hole Café is open on weekdays from 7.30am to 4pm and on weekends from 8am to 3.30pm.
