Tasmanian Beekeepers Association

The Tasmanian Beekeepers' Association is the peak body of the Honey Industry in Tasmania. The TBA is managed by an Executive, made up of a President, a Vice President, six Committee Members and up to two delegates from each of the three Branches.

Approximately two-thirds of Tasmania's honey production is from leatherwood blossom. The remainder includes honey types such as clover, blackberry and gum. The leatherwood flow is from early January to April and is the basis of the commercial industry in Tasmania. Leatherwood grows in rainforests in the southern and western areas of the State largely within regions managed and controlled by State Government authorities as either production forests or the World Heritage Area. Leatherwood honey has a strong flavour and particularly distinctive aroma. It is unique to Tasmania and has established a worldwide reputation as a distinct honey type.

Tasmanian Leatherwood honey is seen as an icon for Tasmania's clean green image and food products. It is a natural food harvested from wilderness and wet forest areas that can be linked to other Tasmanian products and Tasmania's branding image. Honey production provides employment across all areas of the State.

Many of the horticultural and small seeds crops grown in Tasmania depend to varying degrees on the honey bee for pollination. The expansion of the seed industry and stone fruit industries will be dependent on viable pollination services.

The Two Metre Tall Company

Fiercely independent, we seek flavour, sustainability & truth of origin in the food we grow & make!

We are farmers brewing farmhouse ales & ciders in unique batches using farm grown ingredients from our own 600ha property in the Derwent Valley of Tasmania as well as ingredients sourced directly from farmers across the state.

 Barrel aging, spontaneous fermentations, experimentation and everything in between. Fruit in ale, sour cherries and more. 

Charlemont' is the name of our 600 ha farm on the banks of the Derwent River in southern Tasmania.  Just a short 40 minute drive from the heart of Hobart along the road towards the north west.  With just 20 inches average annual rainfall, our farm provides some rural challenges. Fortunately the plentiful Derwent River provides a bountiful water supply.

 We are a stone's throw from the historic hop fields at Bushy Park.

 We grow grain, hops & raise our herd of Black Angus/Wagyu cattle.

The old shearing shed was converted to house our brewery back in 2008.  The brewhouse itself used to be the St. Ives brewery in Battery Point, Hobart, installed back in the late 1980s. Rehoused on our farm, the old kettle & tanks are lovingly nurtured to life to help us on our journey to find a unique estate brewed beer.

Thorpe Farm Produce

Thorpe Farm is a highly diversified broad acre, niche and boutique farming operation that has been run by seven generations of the Bignell family.

We are large scale commodity producers of wool and prime lambs running approximately 12,000 sheep on 2600ha and this is the financial base of our business. There is a nucleus flock of 150 milking ewes for a sheep milking and cheese making operation which also contribute maternal genetics to the crossbred meat flock.

The business runs a 140ha overhead irrigation scheme with the primary focus on growing poppies, lamb fodder crops and cereals for dairy farmers in the region. We also have 85ha of flood irrigation growing summer pasture which allows us to produce lambs for the premium mid-winter market. The business has heavily diversified over the last 40 years and been a key player in developing new industries for Tasmanian and Australian agriculture. John was a pioneer in developing deer farming techniques and the venison industry in Australia and was one of the first 4 people granted a deer farming permit.

In the late 80s we diversified again and moved into crossbred sheep breeds for meat and milk production. John built Tasmanians first sheep dairy and a farmhouse cheesery on the property and using his chef contacts and his experiences in France developed the very successful and award winning Tasmanian Highland Cheeses range of sheep and goat milk cheeses and yoghurts. The business also diversified into intensive horticulture and grew certified strawberry runners with our peak output being 2 million runners a year. Due to certification requirements the crop has to be rotated annually and to control weeds alternative crops were investigated post strawberry growing. We decided to focus on root vegetables and capitalize on our environmental advantages. European Horseradish, White Salsify, Schorzonera and Jerusalem Artichokes for the fresh veg market were chosen.

Thorpe Farm was also a pioneer in aquatic wasabi growing and helped promote a culture of sharing knowledge, growing techniques and collaboration to import superior genetics amongst interested growers. In the last five years some intensive research and evaluation of garlic varieties has been undertaken and we are now one of the state’s largest growers with an expected harvest of 12 tons this year.

Thorpe Farm is home to Australia’s oldest working watermill and we run the mill for tour groups and also have a second 180 year old stone mill used to grind flour for local bakers and wholefood stores around Hobart. As part of this business we also grow and mentor other growers to produce specialty grains for the milling sector with a focus on Spelt and Ryecorn.

Thorpe Farm has also been active in the food services sector running Paddock to Plate catering events, gastronomic tours and attending many food festivals across the state.

Trio of Dips takes particular pride in the use of locally grown products of which the majority are sourced from our local Harvest Farmers Market (Launceston).

Trio of Dips founder Sandy’s dip inspiration began in her childhood with her grandma’s ‘Liptauer’. A cheese and sweet paprika treat that would be thickly spread onto warm fresh bread. As it melted its aroma filled the household as well as a young girl’s imagination. A career as a flight attendant gave Sandy the opportunity to travel to many beautiful destinations and taste amazing food. But after ten years it was time for her wings to be clipped and with her husband Tristan, returned to her beloved homeland of Tasmania. With a dream and a list of delicious dips in hand Sandy and Tristan created their nest in Launceston, and in 2012 Trio of Dips was born. Trio of Dips offers customers a variety of delicious fresh dips proudly made using locally sourced produce.

Their own “urban garden” provides many of the ingredients for their delicious dips, including fresh herbs, citrus, zucchinis and cucumbers all of which influence their seasonal selections. All good things come in threes so you’ll find the smiling amigos, Sandy, Tristan and Magda weekly at Harvest Launceston Community Farmers’ Market offering free tastings and of course take home tubs.

Why not pop over and follow them on Facebook @Trio of Dips – Tasmania, you’ll be able to check out a special deals they have for pre orders exclusive to their followers.

So whether you’re entertaining friends, sharing a picnic with family or just enjoying a deliciously indulgent snack Trio of Dips has you covered.

Anzac biscuit beer

As Tasmanians turned out in force on Anzac Day to remember the sacrifices of servicemen and women at dawn services and lunch-time parades, one beer brewer chose to honour our diggers in a more innovative way. Launceston boutique beer-maker, Morrison Brewery, created a special beer to mark this most sacred of days. A beer flavoured like…Anzac biscuits. It is described by its creator, Paul Morrison, as a malt heavy creation with notes of coconut and golden syrup: just like its biscuit namesake. This special Anzac biscuit beer was unveiled at Launceston’s Fresh Hop Beer Festival, a three-day event that inspires boutique brewers to create a showcase beer using freshly harvested hops. Taking that to heart, Paul Morrison mixed Ella Hops, recently picked at Bushy Park, with coconut, oats and golden syrup to create his biscuity brew. Don’t ever expect it to take the place of that enduring Anzac tipple – the rum toddy –but it is certainly an interesting way to raise a glass to our diggers.

Finally…recipe by popular demand

We have been inundated with requests for the recipe for Ana Pimenta’s Beef Tartare. It featured on our recent King Island video where chef Tetsuya Wakuda and Ray Martin went searching for the world’s best beef and discovered Ana and husband Tom who run a cattle property and farms tours.

Here it is, enjoy!

Ingredients for Ana’s Beef Tartare:

  • 250g flat iron steak (from oyster blade)
  • garlic
  • olive oil
  • King Island blue cheese (just a little)
  • mayo (Ana makes her own - 1 egg, extra virgin olive oil, 1tsp sugar, pinch of salt and pepper and white balsamic vinegar)
  • lemon
  • 4 cos lettuce
  • 4 quail eggs


Blue mayo: Mix mayo and blue cheese (at room temperature) to a paste consistency. 

Beef: Firstly, roast some whole garlic covered in olive oil in the oven until soft and slightly brown. Once roasted, peel garlic and keep along with the olive oil for later (these will be used to season the meat). Beef should be from your butcher and very fresh. One hour before serving cut the beef into very small cubes of about 0.5cm only (it helps if meat is very cold). To season the beef gently mix the olive oil and roasted garlic, salt and pepper and a splash of lemon juice.

Quail eggs: In gently boiling water cook the eggs for 2 min (time it) then put them straight in icy water. Peel them very carefully (the yolk will be runny).

Assembly: On top of the lettuce put a tsp of blue mayo, add beef on top of the mayo, then open quail egg.                                                                                                                                                                   
As with any recipe, taste at every step to see if it needs more salt, pepper or any other ingredients.                   
Enjoy with a glass of Tasmanian Pinot.                                                                                                                  

Footnote: Congratulations to Ana who was selected as one of three Tasmanian finalists in the prestigious AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award.
