Tasmanian Timber Pepper Mills
What better way to showcase your Bronzewing Farm Tasmanian Mountain Pepper than to use a mill made from specialty Tasmanian timbers.
Tasmanian Blackheart Sassafras (Antherosperma moschatum) can grow to 40 metres high with a width of 1 metre. Tasmanian sassafras is very different from North American and East Asian Sassafras species, but they share a magical aroma. The characteristic 'blackheart' streaks are due to a fungus infection that stains the wood. More information on Tasmanian sassafras can be found here.
Huon Pine (Lagarostrobos franklinii) is the prince of Tasmanian timbers. Huon Pine is a species endemic to Tasmania. It is restricted to the western and south-western parts of the state, growing along river banks, lake shores and swampy localities in mixed forests. The tree grows very slowly to about 30 m high with a 1 m diameter. A tree of this size may be 1,000 years old... More information on Tasmanian Huon Pine can be found here.
Tasmanian Blackwood (Acacia melanoxylon) is a timber that is irresistible to Tasmanian designers. Blackwood has a variety of colours ranging from light golden-brown to deep brown. It occurs throughout Tasmania's native forests but an 8,000 ha swamp forest is dedicated to Blackwood silviculture on a sustainable yield basis. Rotations are generally around 70 years. More information on Tasmanian Blackwood can be found here.
Our Tasmanian mills are made by Chris Jackson of Wooden Magic, and have ceramic grinders.
