Farmgate and online marron sales
Visitors can see the marron up close in the holding shed with their life cycle and operational aspects of a modern marron farm also presented in an interesting and educational way. Year round marron from the tanks always provide the freshest produce for the kitchen and tables of the Marron Cafe.
In the normal course of events marron are also available for farm gate or private mainland sales, other Cafe’s on Kangaroo Island, to distribution outlets, and
Restaurants and Cafes on the mainland. Our Online Shop is able to deliver ONLY to ADELAIDE and some surrounding regions dependent on postcode.
However with very many regrets we must advise that the farm suffered the ravages of a freak mini tornado which destroyed a portion of bird protection netting over many ponds. Replacement nets had to be sourced from abroad taking several months for delivery and installation. Every attempt was made to deter cormorants ( shags ) and herons from plundering the exposed ponds over this period. Unfortunately not sufficiently successful and a large amount of marron stock was stripped from those exposed ponds. Once netted again the relevant ponds were restocked but with a 2.5 to 3 year growth cycle full commercial recovery is not anticipated until possibly early 2017. The good news is that marron stock for the Cafe is always available, the bad news is that all harvested stock are reserved for the Cafe with NO external sales possible. We are very unhappy that we cannot currently supply marron more widely and sincerely apologise for this.
