Small Producer Survey


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!

Sprout Tasmania applied for and received funding from the State Government (DPIPWE) in order to undertake a survey of the small scale producer sector in Tasmania. 

We would like to thank everyone involved in this survey, Leah Galvin for her amazing project management, Don Thomson for his awesome survey design and data analysis, Holly Webber for her sensational info-graphic expertise and you as the dedicated producers who took the time to complete this survey. Thanks also to the Tasmanian Government for supporting our project and in turn supporting the small scale producer sector in Tasmania. 

We hope to be in a position to do this survey annually or bi-annually, so we can really build an ongoing picture of your contribution to the state and to learn how the collective Tasmanian agricultural and food community can support you to overcome challenges and realise opportunities.
