Our philosophy is simple. We serve you plates of fresh food that have been picked at their very best and prepared simply to let the produce shine.
Our intention is to encourage and support prosperity, quality of life and strength of community for the people of the area, with a particular focus on those who seek to make a living from the land. We aim to encourage small farm agriculture and related producers by supporting their people, products and businesses and promote them to the Tasmanian community and to visitors from around the world.
Situated 50 minutes drive south of Hobart in the historic port town of Cygnet,Tasmania, the Port Cygnet Cannery building was formerly an apple canning factory and has now evolved into a hub of food, beverage and agricultural businesses. Now a fully self-sustainable restaurant, located 10 minutes from our very own Gardners Bay Farm, Port Cygnet Cannery strives to demonstrate how positive small scale, local farming can be. This includes nose to tail butchery and charcuterie from the animals as well as fermentation, pickling and preserving of produce. We make everything in house, even down to our own bread and butter.
We provide a functional model of regenerative food production aimed to encourage people not only to consider where their food comes from, but to inspire them to be part of a movement towards a more sustainable system of food production into the future.
Our menu is fully seasonal, with dishes centred around what is currently available from the farm. When you visit our restaurant, you can be assured the vegetables on your plate have been freshly picked by Phil, Jimmy and Eva at the Farm or carefully preserved by our chefs from the abundant produce of seasons past.
Our Farm is 140 acres of mixed pasture and bush in Gardners Bay, Tasmania. It is a developing, multi-species, integrated farm that showcases how efficient and productive a well managed, small scale agricultural system can be. Our extensive market garden and orchard produces from a mere 2.2 acres and our rotationally grazed beef, free range layer chickens and pastured pork provide fresh, seasonal produce to the Port Cygnet Cannery, grazing on around 70 acres of beautiful Tasmanian land.
Our farming decisions are influenced by a wide range of different practices, from permaculture principles to holistic management between the farm and the restaurant. It’s this collaborative relationship that informs all of our farming choices. Most of all we strive to create systems that work in harmony with the natural ecology of Southern Tasmania. Our experienced and devoted farmers come from diverse backgrounds.
Although not certified organic we pride ourselves on using organic farming practices.
We offer tours of the farm by appointment and are excited to be offering long table farm lunches on site from late 2022. For information about tours, elopements and events at our farm contact: email@example.com
FARM TO TABLE?
The concept of farm to table is simple and sustainable.
Our farmers grow and nurture the food.
The produce is washed and loaded into a truck.
It is delivered to the Port Cygnet Cannery and turned into delicious food by our intuitive and creative chefs.
We serve it directly to you.
What you don't eat is returned to the farm, turned into beautiful compost.
Then the cycle begins all over again.
