About

Join us on Saturday 6th October!

Cross Pollinate is an annual event which gathers together food growers, producers and customers, industry, hospitality, education, government and not-for-profit representatives to learn, share their farming and food stories, ideas and challenges.

Our theme for the event this year is "The Small Producer Puzzle - finding the right fit"

This year, we are keen to focus on the vast array of small producer businesses there are, and lift the lid to see what makes the cogs turn, why those producers chose to structure their businesses in such a way, and how they found the right fit for their farm as well as their family.

Our hosts

Guy Robertson and his incredible team from Mount Gnomon Farm are hosting us this year, in Penguin on the North West Coast of Tasmania.  Attendees will enjoy a farm tour with Guy, hearing about his journey from 10 pigs 10 years ago, as well as discussions with four incredibly diverse panel members and hands-on workshops. Thanks for extending a hand Guy!! We can't wait to visit your farm.

The day will conclude with network drinks on the farm with fire pits and mouth watering seasonal nibbles and local brews.

Cross Pollinate is managed by Sprout Tasmania, and our team of brilliant volunteers has been working very hard behind the scenes, sourcing produce, creating logos, helping with media, working on conference bags and much  much more.  Thank you to everyone who has been involved in the CP team this year!!  We couldn't do it with out you.
