The Oyster Farm Shop

A unique Kangaroo Island farm-gate experience on a working oyster farm

In the pretty seaside town of American River, you will find some of the best-tasting Pacific Oysters in the world! The Oyster Farm Shop is the farm-gate outlet for Kangaroo Island Shellfish, the only commercial oyster farm on the island. Serving the freshest oysters on Kangaroo Island, we shuck daily when in season (around April to January).  Also showcasing the Island’s Aquaculture and Sustainable Seafood straight from the source.  Enjoy a ‘share-plate’ from our Local Produce Tasting menu with a glass of KI’s finest wine, ale or cider.  This is not a restaurant, cafe or fish &chip shop, it is a unique KI farm-gate experience!
