The Oyster Farm Shop

Showcasing Kangaroo Island’s Aquaculture and Sustainable Seafood

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 commerical oyster farm on the island. Serving the freshest oysters on Kangaroo Island, we shuck daily when in season (around April to January).  We also showcase the Islands Aquaculture and Sustainable Seafood.  You can taste this on our sampling ‘share-plate’ menu with a glass of KI’s finest wine.  This is not a restaurant, cafe or fish and chip shop, it is a unique KI farm-gate experience!
