THE TOP FARM

The Top Farm is nestled alongside the south route of the Naro Muro River, touching the boundary of The Mount Kenya Forest.  This is where most of the breeding and hatching takes place.

BREEDING

We raise fish to a year and a half in age, at which point they start to produce eggs.  These are fertilized and transferred to the hatchery.  Eggs are taken from fish on the farm with the occasional import from Europe or South Africa.

THE BOTTOM FARM

The Bottom Farm is situated along the Burguret River below the Trout Tree Restaurant.  Here there is a  hatchery, 10 small fry fish ponds, 4 medium sized fingerling ponds and 21 large ponds. Normal production in the two farms is close to 2 tons of trout per month.
