smoked produce

My grandpa always made the most delicious smoked Snook which was a highlight of school holidays with my grandparents on Eyre Peninsula.  He built his own smoking box out of an old fridge and it was cranking when the Snook were on the bite!) Probably not quite up to food safety standards today but it did the job!

Following in his footsteps, our Farm Shop produces a variety of delicious smoked products using hot smoking techniques with a traditional island wood source, the native Sheoak nut from the Casuarina trees prolific on KI.
