Postcards from Tasmania 13

The Day 13 Friday 23/09/16 To Fat Pig Farm - we are excited!
We've long been fans of the Gourmet Farmer, Matthew Evans and his SBS TV show so when I discovered he had opened a restaurant on his farm, I worked out that the last Friday of our trip worked in with being right there! I got online and booked 2 tickets.

Posie, our gracious hostess drove us there as there are no taxis running in Cygnet at the moment.

Rubber boots for farm walks - it gets muddy!

The huge, thriving market garden...
Matthew was very generous with his time and is a very funny man...

Back to the restaurant for dessert and coffee.  I bought Matthew's Winter book and a FPF teatowel.
The lady who sat across from us took this photo, so thank you Linda!

Such a great day and I think value for money at $130/head. A delicious lunch and wines, meeting Matthew (wife Sadie and son Hedley were in the US) and 4 hours entertainment and spent with nice people. Good deal! Posie's husband picked us up and took us back to the cottage when we were finished. 
Cheers - Joolz xx
