Huon Happy Hour - Oct 2023
October's Happy Hour is one not to miss! Come join us at The Kiln Eatery in Ranelagh for an afternoon of business networking.
"The Kiln is a historic building with a fascinating past. Originally owned by blacksmith Thomas Jabez Amesbury Frankcomb, the property has since been passed down through generations of the Frankcomb family.
In the early 1900s, Thomas’ son, also named Thomas Amesbury Frankcomb, planted hops along the banks of the Mountain River and converted the wooden barn into a hop kiln to dry the hops. The kiln, which eventually switched from coal to oil firing, was instrumental in the success of the Frankcomb family’s hop farm during World War II.
Today, The Kiln is not only a symbol of Tasmania’s agricultural heritage but also a popular tourist attraction. It stands as a testament to the resilience and entrepreneurial spirit of the Frankcomb family, who adapted to changing circumstances and continued to make a living from the land for generations. Come and immerse yourself in the history of this unique location in the Huon Valley."
