The Boks Tradition
The Boks family originated in Holland where they were butchers and smallgoods makers.
In 1951 Johannes Franciscus Andreas Boks emigrated from Holland to Australia with his son Johannes Franciscus Maria Boks. They found their way to Tasmania and settled in Cygnet in the Huon Valley in the far south. They opened a butchery and there started the legacy of Boks Bacon.
The traditional Dutch recipes handed down from generation to generation and brought to Tasmania quickly developed a cult following for their wonderful smoky flavours.
