What we do

TasFarmers represents the interests of food, fibre, primary production in Tasmania by making submissions and raising awareness on issues that have signification bearing on operational impacts as well as fostering future investments.

Our policies relate primarily to management of our strategic operating environment – what are the key issues affecting our members and developing a solution to that issue. Through effective policy and submissions, we aim to create an environment for farmers that enables profitable, safe and sustainable production, within a community that values and respects the farm sector.
