Small Producer Survey

Sprout Producer Program

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

Applications for 2024 will open in August 2023.

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.
