Fat Pig Farm is home to Gourmet Farmer Matthew Evans and Sadie Chrestman. Together, they run their 70-acre family farm in the beautiful Huon Valley, south of Hobart. There, they live and nurture food from the soil to turn into great meals for the farmhouse table.
Along with their namesake Wessex Saddleback pigs, the farm is home to goats, chooks, a beef herd, a trio of full cream cows, a market garden, bush foods, and heritage apple orchard. They host Farm Feasts, taking what’s great from the garden and turning it into long, lazy lunches shared around their extended table.
They host hands-on workshops, over one or two days, where you’ll get to visit the pigs, raid the garden, learn about keeping goats or how to set up your own garden or design your small farm. Matthew Evans is a chef by trade, an advocate for sustainable food production and is a strong believer in knowing and trusting what you eat. Fat Pig Farm is an extension of this philosophy and you’re invited to share in the spoils!
