Add to Calendar Australia/Melbourne Great Properties of Tasmania by Richard Allen and Kimbal Baker

In Great Properties of Tasmania, Richard Allen and Kimbal Baker take readers inside eighteen private estates – from the rich Midlands region to the northwest, along the Fingal Valley in the east and to the south of the island. They explore the histories of the families who have lived there and describe the farming practices that today’s generations employ. Many properties are owned by sixth- and seventh-generation farmers, and most continue to run sheep and cattle, while others are involved in different markets: whiskey and gin distilling, wine-making and growing poppies, fruit and vegetables. Great Properties of Tasmania is a celebration of key rural estates in Australia’s smallest, most tightly held and arguably most beautiful state.
