Relax well. Eat well. Fish well.

Incomparable Taste

We’ve spent the last 30 years at Blakewell creating the perfect smoked salmon for you.
And now we believe we’ve got it just about right. We are the Nickell brothers. We’ve been fish farming and working in harmony with nature all our lives. You see we’ve grown up with it, we know about it and care about what we do. We smoke our salmon over matured beech wood, taking that extra time and attention needed to bring you the quality you deserve. We don’t believe in rushing, we believe in taking our time about it. We’re passionate about great tasting, locally produced food. And we want you to experience and enjoy it... just like we do. Why not visit us at beautiful Blakewell. Relax well. Eat well.
