The Port Cygnet Cannery is no longer operating.
Situated 50 minutes drive south of Hobart in the historic port town of Cygnet, the Port Cygnet Cannery building was formerly an apple canning factory and has now evolved into a hub of food, beverage and agricultural businesses. Located 10 minutes from our very own Gardners Bay Farm, the 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.
Our menu is fully seasonal, with dishes centred around what is currently available from the farm.
Our farm is 140 acres of mixed pasture and bush. 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.
