Tony moved to Australia from the U.S in 1990 where he had been an organic farmer and produce sales person. He originally settled and farmed in Western Australia but when that farm sold he moved to Tasmania where he was one of the founding partners of Frogmore Creek Vineyard. When the original Frogmore Creek Vineyard sold to Jansz, Tony returned to growing organic vegetables. Tony has been involved in organic farming in some shape or form for the last 40 years and he firmly believes that small-scale production of high quality produce if the future for Tasmania and he has been actively working towards this vision by mentoring and supporting producers through his role as President of Sprout Tasmania.
