Tailor Made Fish Farms

Reporter: Darren Coggan

 

Cookabarra Restaurant

For the chance to experience a very different kind of farm, jump in the car and head to Tailor Made Fish Farms in Bobs Farm. This certainly isn't your traditional farm, here you'll find a unique aquaculture and hydroponics operation which specializes in farming live Barramundi. They have developed a production system that is environmentally sustainable and produces a premium quality fish all year round. The delicious fish are then shipped to Sydney where they are used in many top restaurants around the city.

To really get an idea of how it all works take a guided tour of the farm. You'll get a behind the scenes look at this truly incredible fish and once you're finished you can pop next door for a taste. Cookabarra Restaurant's menu is packed with dishes that'll make it easy to see why Barramundi is so popular. You can dine al fresco on the huge wrap around deck overlooking the fish ponds, and pretty soon you'll even be able to fish for your own lunch.
