Who is Sprout

Sprout Tasmania is a not-for-profit that is volunteer supported. We strive to change the conversation about local food systems and support local producers to grow and farm ethically and sustainably for their community & the environment.

We have one passion, one purpose – ‘Growing Good’


Cross Pollinate is our annual conference, where small-scale farmers and supporters of a resilient food system gather to share ideas, feel connected and learn.

Over the course of two days we will be tackling a subject that’s as thorny as blackberry – making small-farms work financially!

About Sprout

We are Tasmania’s only grassroots group helping aspiring farmers turn their ideas into thriving, sustainable small businesses. Since commencing in 2011, Sprout has supported the success of a wide variety of entrepreneurs, from all walks of life and all over the state.

Our programs are practical, useful and successful and offers real-world learning, networking and growth opportunities. Backed by a wealth of expertise, Sprout’s board of directors and many volunteer supporters, we provide a year-round calendar of events for small producers and growers to connect, learn and grow.

Our small scale producer survey summary report is now available


We represent our members within political, economic and social systems, taking issues & ideas to the table.


The Sprout Producer Program is a one year program which includes education, farm field days, workshops and networking to support and develop producers to prosper and farm sustainably.
