Buxton Trout and Salmon Farm is Australia’s first trout farm where trout have been reared for over 50 years.
The gravity fed water supply originates from the snowfields of Lake Mountain before cascading down Stevensons Falls and through its streams providing the perfect place to grow a clean natural food. No antibiotic chemicals or growth hormones are used on our farm. Our farm is a vertically integrated experience – we hatch the fish here and sell them ready for you to eat! Support local, sustainable and ethical food.
Rainbow Trout are not only a highly sustainable but also environmentally friendly source of natural, healthy food. High in Omega 3 oils trout have great heart health benefits which includes reducing the risk of death by heart attack, stroke or heart disease.
Rainbow trout are native to the Western Coast of North America and were introduced to Australia in 1894. Rainbow trout require cold, clean water in order to survive, if water temperatures start to exceed 25 degrees the fish start to die, which is why our region’s cool, clean rivers and streams provide the perfect place to grow trout.Check out our Trout recipes for ideas by clicking here.

"We used to have a Dutchmen that lived over the road who was a third generation eel smoker. He was probably the first person to commercially smoke trout in Australia back in the late 1970’s. He taught us how to build and use a woodfire smoker for the trout and salmon. It still works very well and we can do 200kg or 600 fish in around 5 hours. We use Mountain Ash as this wood burns very quickly and doesn’t leave any coals so it is great for smoking fish. " - Mitch MacRae, Owner.
