Arc-en-Ciel Trout Farm, Nundle Smokehouse and The Drunken Trout Cafe
Seeking a tree change the Sydenham family purchased Arc-en-Ciel Trout Farm in 2006. By improving the farm infrastructure they now produce trout and smoked meat products and have a café. Sticking to their aim "striving for excellence" they have won many prized medals for their products, both for their trout and Nundle Smokehouse lines. They are most proud of Champion Trout Product award in 2017 from the Sydney Royal Fine Food Awards competition.
They recently opened The Drunken Trout Cafe to diversify their income. It provides visitors a tranquil get-away where they can experience their award winning products and impressive scenery. They have seating indoors for 30 and a further 20 on the veranda.
Hanging Rock is in the Tamworth Regional Council Local Government Area, in the New England North-West Region of New South Wales.
