This month's blog post is about Buxton Trout & Salmon farm. Wildcatch fish co. have being selling smoked trout from Buxton since we first launched in 2018. Prior to this, Duncan was selling their Trout at farmers markets in Melbourne and had so much positive feedback about the product, it was an obvious inclusion into the Wildcatch line up.
Buxton Trout & Salmon Farm was established in the late 1950’s and has been operated by the McRae family since the mid 1980’s who have overseen the development of today’s fish out and processing facilities.
A local Dutchman which lived nearby the farm originally taught the McRae’s how to build and use its traditional wood fire smoker which still operates today. Local Mountain Ash is used in the smoking process which produces up to 200kg of delicious smoked trout each week.
Buxton Trout & Salmon Farm is a fully integrated operation which manages all facets of production from breeding, hatching, growing, processing and smoking. The farm annually hatches up to one million rainbow trout, brown trout and salmon eggs each year for its own purposes and for recreational fishing restocking programmes.
Buxton Trout & Salmon Farm’s trout are high in Omega 3 oils and have great heart health benefits which includes reducing the risk of death by heart attack, stroke or heart disease.
Smoked trout are a versatile and tasty addition to your fridge. It can be served simply with cracked pepper, dill, crème fraiche and water crackers as a knockout pre dinner snack, combine it with some of your favourite greens for a satisfying salad or make it the hero of your next pasta dish.
