Sadly closed for Christmas and ad hoc orders due to a lack of supply of local trout for smoking.

Thank you for all your support and enthusiasm to date, and please don't forget about eating trout, both smoked and fresh, just because we are temporarily closed.

We hope to be back soon, meantime please feel free to get in touch with Shara by phone or email, details below.

News & Events

07 April 2014 - Keeping Costs Down

Facing ever increasing postage, packing and storage costs but not wanting to put our prices up we have decided to simplify the way that we do business and are now only able to provide fresh smoked trout to order, with a leadtime of up to 3 weeks depending on where in our production cycle we are. We realise that this makes 'on the spot' orders almost impossible to fulfil and apologise for this, but as a small business it is the only practical way to keep costs down outside of Christmas which is of course our busiest time.

14th November 2013 - We are taking orders for Christmas!

This year we are concentrating on two products: our flagship cold smoked trout which comes pre-sliced in 200g packets and our smoke roasted large trout fillets also in 200g packets.
Both cold smoked and smoke roasted are £10 per 200g packet, with a minimum order of £20. To guarantee delivery before Christmas please place your order by Friday 6th December.

16th March 2013 - We are on sale in delis in Edinburgh, London, Sussex and Oxfordshire.

Great news for all smoked trout lovers, we are now on sale at Herbies in Edinburgh, BonBon in London, Cowdray Farm Shop in Sussex and Chadlington Quality Foods in Oxfordshire.

3rd January 2013 - We have hit 100 LIKES on our Facebook page !

As a wonderful start to the New Year we have hit 100 likes on our facebook page. Everyone who likes us is very special to us but it was Alexandra Harrison who was the lucky 100th liker and as such will be receiving her free packet of smoked trout later this week.

21st December - We increased our Christmas orders by over 50% compared to 2012!

Thank you to all our wonderful customers for placing so many Christmas orders. With just Shara doing the packing and posting it was quite a challenge but we loved every moment of it.

And if you were one of the lucky people to be enjoying Moffat Water Foods smoked trout on Christmas day then we'd love to hear about it, and maybe even see the odd photo or two.


Our new packaging is finalised!

After a few months of tweaking and fine-tuning we are delighted to announce that our new cardboard sleeves are going to print and will be ready in time for Christmas sales and orders starting from the third week of November.


The other exciting news is that Shara is now committed full-time to Moffat Water Foods - with a new website, new online ordering and lots more in the pipeline.

Celebrating Rainbow Trout! - Saturday 8th September 2012

Despite the road closures we had a great day with locals enjoying rainbow trout prepared and smoked in different ways plus an exclusive tour of the farm. Monty was on hand with innovative ideas for new recipes and Shara learnt a new filleting trick to avoid needing to pin-pone, so a great day all round!

Trout is in the news!
Sustainable fish sales surge in the UK
Sales of alternative and more sustainable species of fish have risen sharply over the past year, UK supermarkets reported on Wednesday. Following a year of high-profile awareness campaigns to encourage take-up of sustainable fish, Sainsbury's has seen a surge of as much as 117% in sales of lesser-known fish species across the UK this year compared to 2011. It says sales of sea bass are up by 57%, fresh pollack by 15%, trout by 29% and tilapia by a significant 117%.
