Sprout Producer Program

The Sprout Producer Program is a 12 month scholarship for small-scale farmers in Tasmania.

Sprout Tasmania supports small and start up producers through research and representing our members within political, economic and social systems. If you have any suggestions for projects or campaigns, please add your suggestion here. 

Our current projects have stemmed from the findings of our recent small producer survey we undertook in March 2021. These include:

  • Meat processing challenges in the state (particularly for those requiring small numbers of service processing).
  • Education pathways for those wanting to learn small scale, mixed enterprise farming in Tasmania
