Rowelley Farm are at the beginning of their journey to establish a direct-to-consumer lamb enterprise from a 50-acre farm at North Motton in NW Tasmania. They currently run 30 Wiltipoll breeding ewes and plan to build up numbers through self replacement in the coming years as we slowly improve the property’s soil and pasture. They chose Wiltipoll sheep due to their calm temperament, high multiple birth rates, great tolerance to worm and foot problems and exceptional meat.
Sparrow Foot Farm
Sparrow Foot Farm is a small footprint farm currently producing food through their expanding market garden and a growing flock of laying hens. Located in the Huon Valley, a hill in Franklin homes the 8 acres that overlook the Huon river. The owners/growers, Inés and David, find purpose and passion in growing healthy food that connects them and their community to the land they share.
Bronwyn relocated with her dog and cat after living abroad for 10 years in the US at the beginning of the pandemic. After finding herself very ill with symptoms including inflammation and joint pain, she went through a journey of discovering food as medicine and my greatest healer.

Seabrook Valley Farm
Ben and Ellie own and run the farm, with not a lot of farming experience behind them, but a whole lot of drive and effort to put into creating a dream. They set out to have some space around them, a future, a great place to start and raise a family, a place where they could grow their own food ethically and sustainably, be self-sufficient and over time it has evolved into a business.
