A Taste of the Huon really blew us away!

A taste of the Huon was another fantastic event, recently held in the beautiful Huon Valley. Literally thousands of people pulled out their picnic rug, sunnies and hats and ventured out to the Huon Valley’s food festival showcase!
Oysters, fine wine, mushrooms, and ice cream were enjoyed by many as they sat and enjoyed the live music and entertainment throughout the day.
The team at Homelands were there to participate and show their support to the taste festival and had property brochures and information on display for the general public to take home. Thank you to all those visitors to our stall on day one.
You may have noticed that day two was a bit lonely on our site as the winds decided to play havoc with our tent – thus the quote going around that we were “blown away at the taste of the Huon”
Luckily plenty of people were still able to enter our free competition to see who would win some great cash prizes. Entrants were asked to guess the year that the original Homelands homestead was established in the Huon Valley. The lucky winners were Heather Crisp (1st place $500) and Megan Graham (2nd place $100). We congratulate both ladies (who are avid supporters of the Huon Valley in many ways). Megan who has been relentlessly fundraising for the upcoming relay for life and her team the “the black rods” who are walking for cancer this weekend in Huonville. And Heather who is currently fundraising for an orphanage in Cambodia thru the school she teaches at – Huonville High School. Along with other staff and students at the school, Heather is working towards raising $25,000 before September to buy land next to the orphanage for the children to have garden and become more self sufficient in their struggle to survive. Anyone wishing to assist Megan and/or Heather can contact us at Homelands for contact details.
