Mount Gnomon Farm is anon-farm restaurant, farm butchery, 1000 tree cider orchard, beautiful French styled gardens and a new barn for functions and events.
We’re a genuine paddockto plate experience.
We grow ethical meat, make artisan small goods and grow fresh produce in our gardens and orchard.
Our farm rests again the backdrop of the stunning Dial Range just south of Penguin. Our story starts over 11 years ago where we set out to promote ethical farming and become Tasmania’s first free range commercial pig farm. We supported rare breeds selling free range pork products into some of Australia’s finest restaurants. The farm and business has now developed and evolved into something much larger than we ever anticipated.
In addition to an on farm butchery it has an on farm restaurant and a new barn for functions and events. This combined with beautiful gardens and a 1000 tree cider orchard has made it become both a beautiful event space and place to visit.
Our new barn is creating a real buzz in the local community and we’re receiving lots of bookings for birthday parties, Christmas functions and weddings! It’s reassuring to see how popular the space is going to become, it’s been a massive project particularly in the middle of a pandemic. We recently dressed up the barn for a fake wedding to capture photos for promotional material and it looked so amazing.
The farm has had a focus on not only producing ethical produce but engaging the community in the story behind the produce. This is why the farm regularly has open days and farm tours. If you haven’t visited us at the farm you have probably heard us telling our story at one of the many food festivals and farmers markets held around Tasmania. Recently we have turned our attention into our home delivery service where we deliver our produce and other local north west produce to households around Tasmania.
