Langhoogte Trout Farm Gets Great Reviews

Some months back we commissioned a trout recirculation system for Marco and his father Uwe Harms on Langhoogte Farm in the Montague area. Whats interesting about the RAS system is that it is run on alternative energy as there is an absence of mains power on the farm – more about that some other time.

Marco and his wife Vivian have been running the farm producing trout which they smoke and sell in the local area. The reviews on the quality of their smoked trout have been good! Here are a couple of comments they have received.

From Dave in Riversdale by email to Vivian: ‘The trout were quite superb- if I could be more flattering I would be!’’. I happened to bump into Dave on the beach in Hermanus over the Xmas holidays. I think the word is used to describe the trout was “exceptional”. 

From Grant, a travel agent and restaurant owner in Montague: ’I had the most AMAZING smoked Rainbow Trout during the course of last week. Farmed, Smoked and distributed locally by Marco and Vivian from Langhoogte Farm. I do not often recommend food products but this was sublime and I don’t use that word lightly either.”

You can get hold of Marco or Vivian on email langhoogtefarm(at)gmail.com if you want to try out their smoked trout.
