Tony Scherer

Tony Scherer’s been a maverick in the sustainable food industry in Tasmania. Originally hailing from California, U.S.A. he started Frogmore Creek Vineyard in 1996 which was one of only a few organic vineyards in Australia at the time and the first in Tasmania .In 2018 Tony was the deserving winner of the Tasmanian Senior Australian of the Year. He was recognised as a pioneer for the organic farming movement in Tasmania. He’s also famous for his purple garlic and I had the pleasure of speaking with him about life, the organic farming industry, and the future of food in Tasmania and around the globe.
