Heazlewood Seeds provide unique factory tours and a museum in Whitemore, Tasmania. Share in the rural heritage of a farming tradition dating back to the 1870s across five generations.
The museum and visitor reception centre is housed within a charming barn. The building has been restored to its former glory when it was once used for storing grain in the 1870s. Since then, Heazlewood Seeds have become the premier seed-cleaning operators of Tasmania. You can visit this abundant natural region, regarded as one of the world’s most clean agricultural production areas. The climate in northern Tasmania is well known for the production and growing of temperate pasture seeds and brassicas. Heazlewood cleans these varieties, as well as vegetable seeds. Book a factory tour where you will be able to view the many processes involved in seed processing and cleaning. Enjoy tea, coffee and light refreshments in the visitor reception centre as part of your tour. Wander through the museum and learn about the unique family history and the process of seed cleaning. The main function room can be used for meetings and training days with catering facilities available.
Whitemore is approximately 25-minutes’ drive (29 kilometres/18 miles) from Launceston.Visit Website
