Bronzewing Farm is a small, quality producer of Tasmanian Native Foods and JBS Farm Assurance accredited pasture-fed, hormone- and antibiotic-free, MSA (Meat Standards Australia) quality beef in the north-east of Tasmania.

Our philosophy is to improve the productivity of the farm while enhancing the agricultural and native ecosystems.

 
Cattle are strip (or block) grazed to ensure optimal management of pasture plant species and to maximise the quality and quantity of the available green feed. Waterways and gullies have been fenced-off and revegetated with native trees and shrubs local to this area. Stock water troughs are gravity fed from one of the water catchments on the farm.

Commercial production of select high 'heat' cultivars of 
Tasmanian Mountain Pepper (as dried peppercorns) started in February 2011. Plantings now total over 600 female plants and there are over 3,000 2-year-old plants in the greenhouse for further planting in 2017, with another 2,000 being propagated for planting in 2018-19.  Our expected yield of dried Tasmanian DEVIL Mountain Peppercorns is 2,000 kg/year when full established.
