Fifteen years ago Tamsin committed herself to eating with the Gippsland seasons and from her own land, a hilly but fertile 113 acres, knowing nothing more than that she wanted to live simply and well and play her own tiny part in ‘fixin’ things’.
A decade later she has the deep satisfaction of knowing where all her food comes from, because all her fruit, veg and meat comes from the patch of dirt around her. With an always plentiful supply of food, and full of the joy that she found in eating this way, six years ago she made the decision to step away from her previous career in advertising and social research and start a farm based business called Tamsin’s Table, which brings people together around a big old table for cooking classes and shared table lunches.
The business has now grown to the point where it books out for months in advance. Tamsin is a regular contributor to local events and media, as well as writing a regular column for Country Style magazine and loves to do whatever she can to support local food businesses and other Gippsland enterprises
