  • Felds Farm

    Felds Farm was originally established in Bagdad, a notoriously dry area to farm. They made the tricky decision to relocate and in 2018, during their time on the Sprout Producer Program, they formed a strong relationship with Liz and Rick from Summerleas Farm. When they told Liz and Rick they were looking to relocate they very generously offered to lease a 4 acre parcel of their beautiful farm in North Lilydale, just north of Launceston.

  • Freshfield Grove

    Freshfield Grove, based in Campania, grows two Spanish olive varieties, Picual and Manzanillo, both very well suited to the cool climate of Southern Tasmania. Fabulous flavours come from small batches, and by nurturing their olives from start to finish they can ensure great quality products that have won awards in state and national competitions.

The herd is deliberately kept on the small size, so there’s plenty of room to move.
