Tammi Jonas

Ethical Pig Farmer/Butcher

Former vegetarian academic Tammi Jonas is resident meatsmith at Jonai Farms, where she and her family of ethicurean farmers raise pastured rare-breed Large Black pigs and cattle on 69 acres of volcanic paddocks just outside Daylesford, Victoria.

Tammi has been writing about food ethics, culture and politics since 2006 at her blog ‘Tammi Jonas: Food Ethics’, and has been widely published. She is the current Chair of Fair Food Farmers United (FFFU), the producers’ branch of the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA), of which she was President from 2014 to 2016. Food sovereignty promotes everybody’s right to access nutritious and culturally-appropriate food grown in ethical and ecologically-sound ways, and their right to democratically determine their own food and agriculture systems.
