Tas-Saff is the saffron hub south of the equator. Terry, Nicky and Patrick Noonan original sea-changers from Sydney in the late ’80s, pioneered the saffron industry in Australia.
You will find Tas-Saff perched high on the hill overlooking Glaziers Bay in the idyllic Huon Valley south of Hobart.
Saffron is harvested each year during April and May. the lilac crocus flowers must be picked early each day before the sun comprises the integrity of the saffron.
At night they sit like little rockets with the tip poking through the soil, then they shoot up a few centimetres high in the morning when the sun comes out, hence their name, the Flower of the Sun.
Spice collected from the fiery red stigma of the lilac crocus flowers has been valued for its’ culinary and medicinal properties for thousands of years.
Tas-Saf offer free saffron gin and saffron tea tastings.
The Tas-Saff farm is open 10 am – 5 pm for farm gate visits nearly all year.
