Some 50 Years ago, in a region known as Bannister – near Crookwell, a dream was born. The boss Keith, known as The Trapper, was out in the bush with his father Bill trapping rabbits. Just on dusk, Bill lit a campfire not far from the tent. Fancying himself a bit with the bushtucker, he began to bake a damper in a camp-oven he’d bought from a travelling swagman a few years before. Unbeknown to Bill, a seed had been planted in a young Keith’s head – to one day become a baker.
