Here are some old pictures taken in the Huon Valley. Orchards, mostly apples and cherries are still common although many of the old apple orchards are gone. There are old apple packing sheds dotted all over the valley.
I used to enjoy going to country shows. The Huon Show was always a good one with lots of animals to see but I also really liked the Middleton Fair which was held in the Channel area.
Most of the hops used in beer making are grown in the Derwent valley but we do have a nice example of an old hop kiln at Ranelagh near Huonville.
