Two Dam Sustainable Trout Farm

Eco-friendly cottages on working trout farm | Uncompromised Sustainable Farming

All trout products are produced and packaged on LANGHOOGTE, a farm in the Montagu area that runs almost entirely on renewable energy. The farm strives towards uncompromised sustainability in all fields of its farming and operational practices; from its water supply to the alien clearing projects and waste management practices.

All our artisanal trout delicacies are produced on the farm, fresh and free from preservatives and harmful additives. Our trout are farmed in an ethical manner with the traditionally proven curing and smoking process that leads to a range of top-quality, highly sustainable and delicious trout products.
