Sprout is a not for profit organisation run by volunteers. Our vision is for a knowledgeable and supportive local food community here in Tasmania. At our core, we support small food producers to get their ideas in the ground, growing and to market, while also connecting these producers with consumers.
Sprout believe that the food culture in Tasmania is shifting slowly, as consumers become more aware of the seasonality and provenance of the food they purchase. Check out our projects for this year and find out which six producers are currently going through our Sprout Producer Program.
To enable us to support your local Tasmanian food producers, we rely on extremely generous corporate sponsors and members. Become a member and donate here to Sprout Tasmania.
Kicking off our 2017 Dining series!
Our first event at Brooke Street Larder was a hit, with Chef Sam Gasson and producer Rocky Top Farm teaming up to bring us some sensational dishes! The conversation was relaxed and engaging as we all enjoyed the food knowing that most of the produce had been picked straight from the farm that day!
Next we had our intimate dinner for 20 in the Cellar Room at Stillwater Restaurant in Launceston. It was a night of many laughs, good stories and the most awesome produce presented by Craig Will and his team.
Our July event was held at Hamlet Hobart, with an extra virgin olive oil tasting that blew us out of the water! The emerald green colours of this years harvest were just incredible. Then, Chef Cam Perry and his team worked with our smashing Tasmanian produce, to present dishes like beef tartar, wombok rolls and more.
Tickets will be available soon for our next event at the Agrarian Kitchen Eatery in September...watch this space!
