Matthew Evans is a chef by trade who is also the host of Gourmet Farmer on SBS. He is an advocate for sustainable seafood and is a strong believer in knowing and trusting what you eat. Fat Pig Farm is an extension of this philosophy, where we do as we preach; growing and rearing as much food as we can for the table. Fat Pig Farm, a 70acre property is located in the beautiful Huon Valley, south of Hobart, where they adopt a paddock to plate concept.
