Farm Gate Guide

Tasmania’s bountiful supplies of fruit are renowned for their delicious flavour and are recognised by food connoisseurs across the world.

Our mild temperate maritime climate provides the ideal environment for slow maturation and flavour development.

The state’s topography and geography allows for niche micro-climates throughout the state and provides a diversity of produce to be harvested from early summer through to late autumn.

The fruit industry in Tasmania is one of the oldest and has shaped the future of many regions including the Huon Valley and Tamar Valley. Today the Tasmanian fruit industry continues to expand and is focused on providing premium quality fruit to national and overseas markets.

The Farm Gate Guide has been designed for locals and visitors alike to source some of the freshest fruit produce direct from the grower. Grab a bag of fresh apples or cherries, a punnet of delicious berries, or box of seasonal stone fruit and snack on them as you travel around and enjoy the wonderful Tasmanian scenery.

Relax and enjoy your tour around the state and revel in the abundance of delicious fresh fruits grown in one the most ideal environments in the world.
