Tasmanian Beauty

While taking a trip to see Nigel and Pip from Brid River Lamb in Springfield, we couldn't help but stop to admire the view from the Sledge Track of West Scottsdale and the Brid River Valley. For us, it is quintessentially Tasmanian. We'd love to know more about the history of this special valley. Feel free to leave your comments here if you'd like to share what you know and love about the Sledge Track (why is it called Sledge, for example?) In the meantime, we're hoping to learn more from Nigel and Pip, whose passion is for a return to lamb production in the most traditional of ways.

Thank you fellow northeastener...;-) We only go as far east as Lilydale at the moment, however if we can get enough interest to go further to Scottsdale we would do our best to make it work.

Have you tried a ad in local paper you may be surprised at how many people would buy off you

Thank you for your thoughts. In truth we've grown by word of mouth and tend to rely on that - as well as the quality and freshness of the produce we source - rather than advertising. We just love how people find out about us on the grapevine and get in touch - like you!
