Horticulture is a vibrant and flourishing industry in Tasmania and involves the production of cherries, hops, vegetables, grapes, apples, berries, walnuts and stonefruit. The fertile Valleys of the Coal River, Huon Valley and Derwent Valley in the south; Meander Valley, Tamar Valley and Dorset Region in the north; and Mersey Valley, Leven Valley and Circular Head district in the north west are responsible for much of the State’s developed horticulture.
Cultural changes have seen the production of wine and other fruit crops as well as herbs in recent times. The Tasmanian wine industry is well regarded for naturally elegant wines made from grapes grown in climates similar to those of the famous European wines – with mild summers and long autumn days that ripen the grapes providing elegance and intensity of flavour.
Forestry has been significant historically and the husbandry of high quality sheep and cattle is also important to the economy of the State.
The dairy industry is the largest sector of Tasmania’s agricultural industry and a significant contributor to the Tasmanian economy. It offers a number of investment opportunities, including large-scale pasture-based milk production, specialty cheese manufacture and large-scale dairy commodity processing.
A job in Tasmanian agriculture can be challenging but rewarding and may even provide a worker with a new career direction and training pathways.
Tasmanian Agricultural Jobs Project
The Tasmanian Agricultural Jobs Project is more than just a response to the backpacker tax issue. This is a Project to assist local Tasmanian’s, migrants and humanitarian entrants residing in Australia, international students or Pacific seasonal workers to connect with job opportunities within the State’s agricultural sector.
This Project is a Tasmanian Government and industry response to the broader hubbing of agriculture jobs for willing and capable workers. These jobs may be casual seasonal work, part-time or even full-time with a focus on labour sources already within the State. Farmers and industry can advertise on this site for a minimal feel while those seeking work can either apply to the advertisements or approach our employment services partners via the links on this website.
A job in agriculture is not for everyone. But with commitment and a willingness to learn, there are jobs, careers and training pathways across this fast growing sector across regional Tasmania.
More people are needed from general pickers and pruners to middle level managers, marketers, agriculture teachers up to senior researchers. The job pathways across agriculture are many and varied. Do you have what it takes to make the first step?
