Langdale Farm Pork
See hobby farming in full swing at Langdale Farm – not just a farm but also a food and agri-tourism business.
Oliver Stocker raises rare breed Berkshire and Wessex Saddleback pigs in a bush block on just a few acres, and makes premium bacon and sausages which the couple sell at award winning Harvest Launceston farmers’ market and through local fine-food providores. The farm has a place in the new sharing economy, offering tranquillity and a taste of real rural life in its comfortable guest accommodation. Meanwhile, Fiona Stocker is a local author writing about their endeavours, rural life and the food and tourism sector in Tasmania in her own books and in magazine features.
