‘Nick the Fish’ is available in our Farm Shop every Tuesday and Friday.

Meet ‘Nick the Fish’!

Nick with Halibut

“I will always provide you the freshest fish and tastiest seafood sourced from suppliers and fisherman that I trust”

Nick has been buying and selling fish for the past 20 years.  He also enjoys catching them when he’s not working, ensuring his all round knowledge and wealth of experience in the industry is second to none!

Nick provides fresh, seasonal fish and shellfish from the waters around the British Isles, with much of his stock coming from Llandudno, Conwy in Wales. He is also a regular early morning visitor to the Manchester Fish Market where he picks up Farm Shop favourites: Turbot, Brill, Lemon Sole and Monkfish (from Cornwall); Wild Salmon and Wild Sea Trout (from Northumberland); and Smoked Haddock (from Hull).

If there is a specific fish you need for a recipe please just ask Nick (or Rob, who you will also meet on our Fish counter). If they haven’t got it in stock they will try to pick it up for you on their next trip to market!

Quality Service

  • All our Fish can be skinned, deboned and cut to meet your requirements. Fish that has been expertly hand-filleted is always recommended if you want boneless fish for your cooking!

  • All our fresh Fish can be frozen and kept for any special occasion. We will even store it until you need it – a 40kg salmon can take up an awful lot of room in your fridge-freezer!
  • The secret of great tasting seafood is to buy the very best Fish in season! Buying seasonal Fish also means great value for money and will help sustain healthy Fish stocks for years to come.

Please ring Nick or Rob on Friday to place your order for collection over the weekend!

AN INTERESTING LOCAL FISHY FACT!

Did you know that Britain’s most famous angler lived a short 20 minute drive (11 miles) from our Farm?!

Izaak Walton (1594– 1683) was born in Stafford and is best known as the author of ‘The Compleat Angler‘, the iconic guide to fishing and the second-most reprinted book in the English language after the King James Bible! His cottage and gardens can be found at Shallowford, Staffordshire (ST15 OPA) and are open to the public on Sunday afternoons during the summer time.
