About Buxton Trout & Salmon Farm
Buxton Trout & Salmon Farm is unique because it operates using a gravity-fed, flow-through system that utilises fresh river water from the snowfields of Lake Mountain, rather than recirculating water. This system ensures a clean and natural environment for raising trout and salmon, resulting in healthier and more robust fish.

Visitors to the farm can enjoy a hands-on fishing experience, catching their own rainbow trout or Atlantic salmon. The farm provides all necessary equipment, and guests can cook their fresh catch on-site using the available BBQ facilities, making it a perfect outing for families and groups. Additionally, the farm maintains a commitment to sustainability by feeding the fish natural food and avoiding the use of antibiotics or growth hormones.

The farm is not only a fishing spot but also a place to learn about sustainable aquaculture practices. Tours and educational programs are available, allowing visitors to understand the importance of maintaining natural ecosystems and supporting local food production. This approach has made Buxton Trout & Salmon Farm a model for environmentally friendly aquaculture and a beloved local attraction.
