And so on Christmas day we had quite the table - Oliver's two year old prosciutto displayed proudly in its new holder, and a beautiful smoked ham Oliver made for our Christmas lunch with friends.
Both were sensational. Next year, we may do hams again for Christmas - if we have enough hind legs.
The prosciutto we cannot produce commercially. But if you find Oliver at our Harvest Market stall he will be only too glad to engage in a long conversation with you about it. Who know, if you become friends in pork, he might one day bring you a sliver of delicious contraband to whet your appetite!
Just in case anyone hasn't found us there yet, we successfully applied to northern Tasmania's biggest and best farmers' market Harvest Launceston at the end of last year.
We can now be found enjoying a fortnightly spot, selling our range of luscious pork cuts, and Oliver's sought-after pure pork sausages and his increasingly popular farm-cured and smoked bacon.
