Sprout Producers

Sprout Producers are local small and start-up Tasmanian producers who produce and sell ethical, great tasting food. They have been through a one year accreditation program with Sprout.

Sprout Producers use the Sprout stamp of approval. If you see the Sprout logo on produce in your local grocery store or restaurant menu then you can meet the farmer or see the farm on Sprout’s website and you know that the producer has been through a quality control program.

Look out for this logo!

Sprout Producers have access to mentoring from experts in the field of small business, value-adding, food quality, agriculture, horticulture, freight and logistics and more.

We are thrilled to welcome the 2017 cohort of Sprout Producer Scholarship recipients into the program.

2014 Sprout Producers

In 2014, Tony Scherer and Joyce Johnston of Rocky Top Farm were our first producer to go through the Sprout Producers Program. Tony and Joyce are now accredited Sprout Producers and are part of the Sprout Producer Alumni. If you see their stickers in local, small Tasmanian grocery stores or on menus at restaurants you know you are buying local high quality produce that has been grown using ethical and environmental practices.
