Our philosophy is to provide food and drink manufacturers, chefs, gourmet retailers and innovative home cooks with a consistent supply of high quality Mountain Pepper while enhancing the farm's agricultural and native ecosystems.
Bronzewing Farm's owners - partners Andrew Rath and Sharon Fraser commenced commercial production of select high 'heat' cultivars of Tasmanian Mountain Pepper (as dried peppercorns) in February 2011. Plantings now total
over 3,000 female plants and there are another 2,000 3-year-old plants in the greenhouse for further planting in Spring of 2019. Our expected yield of dried Tasmanian DEVIL Mountain Peppercorns®is 2,000 kg/year by 2024.
All production is undertaken on Bronzewing Farm: Plant propagation, our Mountain Pepper plantation, harvesting, drying, packing and shipping.
We produce both air-dried peppercorns and the exquisite freeze-dried pepperberries, as well as freeze-dried Mountain Pepper leaf.
We welcome farm visits, but visitors must telephone in advance to make an appointment as the farm has a strict biosecurity plan in place to minimise the risks associated with introduced plant diseases.
