a letter from the editor

I love the sayings of the bush. I can remember when I was a little girl trying to work out half the things a friend of ours used to say. He had spent years working as a jackaroo so his everyday conversation was peppered with things like, “Where is your barrel of fat?” (Translation: where is your riding hat which you need to put on before I will let you get on that pony) and “All he said was nod his head” about someone sparse with words. So Annabelle Hickson’s column this month about what she calls ‘farmer speak’ reminded me of the lovely Chappie Howarth, who taught me a lot about horses and dogs, not to mention some interesting expressions. In this issue we head bush to visit Anlaby Station,…

REBECCA WHITE Meet the sales manager who oversees our fabulous classified advertising section, beginning on page 135. For the past 14 years, Rebecca has managed the sales team that compiles Country Emporium, Home and Garden Emporium, and Country and Coastal Retreats. “The Country Style family of advertisers are unique,” she says. “They are very passionate and hands-on, just like our readers.” And has Rebecca ever bought anything from the classifieds? “I sure have. The Emporium section is my saviour. I got my mum a Saddler & Co voucher, which she used to buy a leather purse.” Although she now calls Sydney home, Rebecca grew up in Goulburn and often visits her mum in Wellington, NSW. “You could say I have country blood, but I don’t think I’d be forthcoming in milking a…

farmer speak

THIS MONTH MY HUSBAND and I celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary, which means I’ve lived in the bush for a decade. Although I wouldn’t say I’m fluent in farmer speak yet, I’m much further down the path of understanding these Men of Few Syllables than I once was. An Aussie-farmer-to-English dictionary would have helped me in the early days, and so now I offer this to you, just in case it might benefit you. And please, if you have any translations of your own, share them with me. There’s much more to understand about these farmers of ours. Time Farmers have an interesting relationship with the concept of time. A friend has coined this phenomenon ‘Bullsh*t Country Time. Another name could be ‘Time Influenced by the Eternal Optimism of Farmers. Here…

IN THE HEART of the Barossa Valley at Tanunda, Ilona Glastonbury makes pottery in a small studio out the back of an old cottage. This is the home she’s shared with her husband Craig Butcher for the past 11 years, and now their children, Atticus, seven, and Lottie, five. Chickens scratch outside the studio door, while inside Ilona moulds her beautifully tactile bespoke objects — spoons, bowls, dishes and plates. It’s all done in the ‘locavore’ tradition, meaning Ilona sources 99 per cent of her materials locally, to minimise her impact on the environment. Most of the clay she uses is harvested just 40 kilometres away from her home. When she sells online, her wrapping paper is also biodegradable, she uses natural jute twine ties and swing tags of recycled paper.…

visit an art gallery NSW Embellish: Hilda Rix Nicholas and The Art of Costume May 5th–June 18th This important retrospective exhibition from the Rix Wright collection includes paintings, sketches and other works on paper, as well as significant photographs, ephemera and costumes. Painter Hilda Rix Nicholas made a hugely compelling contribution to Australian art in the period between the first and second world wars, with her nationalist landscapes and spirited portraits of soldiers. In France, she also achieved a remarkable level of success and recognition for an Australian artist, particularly for her orientalist and pastoral subject paintings and her drawings. This is an exhibit not to be missed. Free entry, 10am to 4pm, Monday–Saturday, Bega Valley Gallery, Zingel Place, Bega.
