hilbarn goes to Campbell Town

hilbarn is now delivering fresh produce boxes to Campbell Town. Your box can be collected on Tuesdays from The Book Cellar, located underneath Foxhunter's Return. It's an amazing location: while you're there, say hello to Michael (left) and Cath, browse the fascinating collection of new and second hand books, and think about the lives of the convicts once held here while they built Campbell Town's famous Red Bridge. 

The red brick line that Michael is standing on goes right through the Midlands town and marks the kind of "crimes" for which young people were transported to Tasmania in the 19thC. For example: James Duffy, age 20, from Dublin - he stole a plate and got 7 years. It was one way to build a colony... Thanks to Michael and Cath for making contact; we're glad we could make it work. If you're in Campbell Town and fancy discovering fresh, Tasmanian produce, drop us a line: hilbarn@bigpond.com, or pick up a hilbarn brochure from The Book Cellar.
