Stream-Fed Rainbow Trout (Fresh & Smoked)
“Stream Farm’s rainbow trout is without a doubt the finest I have ever tasted and their smoked trout is absolutely delicious”
Hwyel Jones, Michelin Starred Executive Chef at Lucknam Park
A few years ago we restored three old hatching ponds on the farm, which are fed from the stream that runs through our land. We buy in rainbow trout as fingerlings at about 4 inches long from a hatchery down the road in Watchet and grow about a thousand our the ponds at a time.
We sell our trout fresh, or fresh frozen as well hot smoked trout fillets, also fresh or fresh frozen.
Sold fresh, our trout come in various sizes but we sell mainly 1lb fish (after gutting) to restaurants, and retail customers. If you would like bigger fish, do ask, and contact us for prices as well.
Our smoked trout is sold in packs of single or double fillets and are about 200-350g. Do contact us for prices.
The Smoking Process: In a stroke of sheer genius, we bought an old caravan on e-bay for £100 and added two smokers, converting it into our smoke-house! Both salt and wood smoke have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties which is why brining and smoking has been used for hundreds of years as a way to preserve foods. Our smoked trout is great in a salad, made into a pate, or just straight from the packet if you can’t wait!
