Wel­come to our first is­sue of North East Liv­ing mag­a­zine

North East Living Magazine - - Contents - Jeff Zeuschner | EDI­TOR

As pub­lish­ers of com­mu­nity news­pa­pers through­out the North East we never cease to be amazed at the in­ter­est­ing

and in­spir­ing peo­ple who choose to call this magnificent re­gion their home, and how they en­rich, in so many ways, the

en­vi­able life­style choices we en­joy.

It is some­thing we shouldn’t take for granted, and it is some­thing we want to share in the pages of this bi-an­nual mag­a­zine – a cel­e­bra­tion of lo­cal peo­ple, their sto­ries, homes and gar­dens, our magnificent food and wine, art, re­gional at­trac­tions and events, land­marks, shop­ping and his­tory.

This mag­a­zine is to of­fer a taste of life in the North East, shared

by our ded­i­cated and proudly parochial staff and ex­tended friends who call Wan­garatta, Indigo, Alpine, Mans­field, Be­nalla,

Moira and Al­bury/wodonga mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties their home.

In our first au­tumn/win­ter edi­tion we meet the Jacka fam­ily

who’ve left their city life­style be­hind to es­tab­lish an award win­ning goat cheese busi­ness at Tar­rawingee; get a glimpse of the cre­ative tal­ents of Be­nalla artist Tony Flint; en­ter the minds of Ruther­glen Es­tate’s chief wine­maker Marc Scalzo and Brown Broth­ers’ ex­ec­u­tive chef Dou­glas El­der; tour Brenda and Lou Pom­ponio’s cus­tom built con­tem­po­rary farm­house near Beech­worth; sad­dle up with Mans­field’s his­toric moun­tain cat­tle­men fam­i­lies; see how am­a­teur

the­atre is flour­ish­ing on the Bor­der, and much more.

So sit back, re­lax and hope­fully en­joy the read as much as

we’ve en­joyed putting it to­gether for you.
