About us.

Tamar Artisan Smallgoods produce handmade, small run, delicatessen products and supplies from local and seasonal produce, using traditional methods.

A long love affair with fine food was always likely to end in a career.
Peter Martin was cooking dinner parties for his parents at around 10 years old and having held almost every position in the restaurant industry at one time or another, Peter has worked with food almost all of his life.
For the past few years, since moving to Tasmania, Peter was inspired by the quality and diversity of the local produce all across the State. Having been experimenting with smallgoods production for some years, Peter took the opportunity in 2014 to turn this love of artisan food products into a living and a lifestyle.
Tamar Artisan Smallgoods is the result of a passion for artisan food, transforming into a business, who’s initial aim was only to supply family and friends.
With our main kitchen located on the banks of the Tamar River outside Launceston Tasmania, we enjoy a fantastic and beautiful natural environment which further inspires and enhances our products.

Its not all work on the Tamar. We have an amazing location and a regular array of beautiful wildlife right in the back yard.

These are just some of the regular visitors to our yard. Check back now and then to see who else has shown up.
