Who we are

The store started as an idea. Just a thought. Sitting in a Melbourne high rise office, battling long commuting times, daycare pick ups and the rush of an all round way too busy life in a bustling city. Feeling like this treadmill surely wasn't all there was to aspire to in life. Zoe and Jason Howard thought there has to be more to it than this?

So back in 2015 they decided to step off the edge of Australia and set sail for a new life off the beaten track - Tasmania. 

They decided to start that dream life and bought a small farm and started not one, not two but three businesses. 

The next few years showed if you put a lot of hard work, tough as nails attitude and still a lot of learning you can achieve what you set out to do. There were many ups and downs and frustrations mixed with joy, happy tears and continue to be so. 

Fast forward to 2021 and Acreage has now been open for three years, survived a pandemic and continues to attract new and loyal customers both local and around Australia.
