what we do
Tas Ag Co produces regenerative Wagyu cross beef that’s good for you and our planet.
We grow Tassie beef that’s ‘beyond sustainable’ using non-conventional, holistic farming practices. We work with Mother Nature to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and store it back in the ground where it belongs.
We don’t simple buy carbon credits as an easy way to offset emissions. We are committed to a better way of producing food, and it all starts with soil.
In 2019, Tas Ag Co became the first farm in Tasmania to register a soil carbon project through Australia’s $2.5 billion Emissions Reduction Fund, using the only soil carbon measuring protocol eligible under the United Nations Paris Agreement.
We’re on a mission to help reverse climate change through regenerative farming, and our cattle are key to this process.

Restoring native ecosystems and rebuilding soil health through data-backed management practices and carbon farming are the epicentre of Tas Ag Co. We’re repairing landscapes, restoring environmental health and creating a nutritious and sustainable food product for the modern day, conscious consumer.
Below are just some of the unique ways we farm which enable us to capture and store carbon dioxide.
Our ‘salad bowl’ paddocks
Forget boring old grass! Our multispecies crops add diversity to our cattle’s diet, improve soil health, and sequester carbon dioxide through photosynthesis.
Time controlled, rotational grazing.
Our cattle are moved to fresh paddocks daily, mimicking how animals move in the wild. Through grazing paddocks using this rotational system, they kick-start the plant and soil regeneration process. We can’t do it without them!
Most conventional farms spray pesticides to control pests includes weeds and insects. Pesticides disrupt soil microorganisms, the very life that drives soil carbon sequestration and, therefore, the heart of regenerative agriculture.
And that’s just a taste of what we’re up to!our story
Tas Ag Co was founded by us, husband and wife team Sam and Steph Trethewey. We run the business from our farm in the state’s Central North where we live with our two children Elliot and Evie.
Sam is a third generation Tasmanian farmer and entrepreneur who spent 15+ years working on farms and across cities in the startup, agtech and agribusiness space.
Steph grew up in Sydney and spent most of her career working as a television journalist across the country for Channel 7 and Channel 9.
With a joint passion for food, provenance and the environment, together, we launched Tas Ag Co to produce a unique eating experience for consumers and to challenge the food industry to do better.our product
You can find Tas Ag Co’s regenerative beef at Meat Mistress, a boutique butchery in Hobart.
You can also find it at select Hill Street Grocer stores across Tasmania.
We’re launching nationally too. If you’re interested in our product, please get in touch.
Home compostable packaging
We sought out the most environmentally friendly meat packaging we could find. Our retail range comes in home compostable packaging by Econic.
- These vacuum sealed bags are plastic free and plant based.
- The white barcode/price stickers that are placed on our bags are also compostable.
- You can put your bag in your own home compost, worm farm, or even bury it in the garden where it will break down over time.
- OR simply put them in the bin guilt-free!

About Econic: The majority of every Econic bag is made from a combination of compostable films. The three films used to make Econic® are derived from sustainably-produced wood pulp and GM-free corn sources, and each film has been certified to either the European or Australian home compostable standards (OK Compost Home or AS5810).
Sam and Steph have been sharing their journey since Tas Ag Co was just an idea.
