Some years ago Stream Farm restored three old hatching ponds, which are fed from the stream that runs through the land. They buy in rainbow trout as fingerlings at about 4 inches long from a hatchery in Watchet and grow about 1500 across the three ponds at a time.
They also found an old caravan on e-bay for £100 and added two smokers, converting it into a smoke-house for producing the exceptional smoked trout! 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.
We sell the trout fresh, or fresh frozen as well as hot oak-smoked trout fillets, also fresh or fresh frozen. Each fish is sold gutted and whole, and usually weighs around 5-700g. If you would like larger fish do ask. The smoked trout is sold at £35/kg, in packs of single or double fillets ranging from 300-400g. Both the fresh and oak-smoked rainbow trout have been awarded many Golds in Taste of the West awards.
