Our Story

Berkshire Trout’s heritage dates from 1907 when the farm near Hungerford first started restocking rivers and fisheries with beautiful brown and rainbow trout across the south of England. We took over the farm in 2020. At the time the farm was a re-stocking farm only and all the trout were replenishing rivers and fisheries across the country. As the trout are grown on the extensive and low-stocked farm fed by the clear flowing waters of the River Dun they get all the space as they need to develop and grow, as they would do in the wild, which provides an enhanced and delightful flavour.

We had our first ‘trout for tea’ one evening in October, pan fried with a parsley pesto. We were blown away by how delicious the trout was. It was that evening we decided we had to share this delicious and sustainable fish with others. Guided by the sustainability of the farm we founded the food side of the business in 2021. The online shop now sells a small, but delicious, range of fresh, cold and hot smoked trout products with free delivery of up to 40 miles from Hungerford. We also pop up regularly at markets and sell our trout to some of the finest restaurants in the area.
