DISCOVER: Farm shop Opening Hours

Our Farm Shop opening hours change with the seasons as visitation to the island is very seasonal and most of our produce is seasonal too!  We have limited seating on the premises but there are lovely picnic spots along the foreshore where you can enjoy your seafood bounty should all of our seating be utilised.

 

South Australian School holidays are VERY busy on the island and we do recommend pre-ordering shucked oysters if you just want to pick up and take them back to your accommodation.  Some days we do sell out (our shucker can only shuck about 100 dozen per day) and pre-ordering may also prevent delays as at the end of some busy days we are shucking to order to meet demand.  To preorder ring the shop and leave your name, phone number, product and quantity.  We will ring you back to confirm.
