GREETINGS FROM NEW ITALY, NORTHERN NSW

Postby brassylassy » Mon Mar 09, 2009 1:23 pm

Hi all,

Just discovered this site and looking forward to sharing ideas with like minded people.

Have enjoyed organic farming most of my life and get an enormous amount of pleasure from growing my own food, preserving it and watching our Dexter cattle happily graze and go about their daily lives.

Bye for now

Hi Kathleen,

The New Italy Story fascinates me, here's what I put on the dexter forum about it.

New Italy has a very interesting history... it's on the Northcoast just down the Pacific Highway from Woodburn.

As the story goes (Lynda correct my story I'm sure to get some wrong) a Count about 100 years ago or more, convinced these families in Italy to take a boat trip to a promised land. They all boarded and off they set, he of course took all their money. Then he dumped them in New Guinea (I think) where many died.

They were rescued and brought to Australia and they all ended up getting jobs and living all over the place, but kept in touch. Then they decided to look for a place they could all live 'New Italy'.

And they found it on the Northcoast. New Italy has a small museum with the story and this year they celebrated Australia Day there. Have some good italian food as well. It's worth the turn off the highway before you reach Woodburn to have a meal and browse.
:D

If we ever get to do our trip ( keep planning and something always seems to come up) then I shall have to remember to go and have a look. Sounds interesting.
