HallAs you drive past the outskirts of Canberra you will find the historic Hall village and district. Many of the locals have chosen to leave the hustle and bustle of the city to embrace a life on the land. Visit the region’s restaurants and B&Bs and you too will be inspired by a different way of life.
In 1991, fed up with the vagaries of the stock market and the world of merchant banking, and coupled with a desire to look for a business closer to home, Susan Bruce with her husband Robert, turned their grazing property on its head by converting it into a country smokehouse.
Soon demand grew and Poachers Pantry was born. Now home to the award-winning Smokehouse Café, Wily Trout Vineyard and stunning regional wedding venue – a day at Poachers is a rich experience and Susan and Robert are prime examples of regional business people taking control of their product and branding it for the marketplace.
This has seen their unique range of high quality smoked meats and products sold into Australia’s leading restaurants, enjoyed by Qantas travellers and now available at a growing number of quality grocers and supermarkets.
