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.

On the Day 

Take a tour of the farm with Oliver, meet the pigs and maybe even pat a piglet! See the smoker in action and learn about making your own sausages and bacon, building your own smoker, and curing and smoking your own meats and other products. Chat to Oliver and Fiona about their move to Tasmania and survival in a small regional farm and food business. And don’t forget to grab a delicious sausage in a roll from the barbecue, served with farm-made relish.

BBQ gourmet sausages in a roll with farm made relish for sale at the farm.
