The Oyster Farm Shop

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

Discover our farmgate…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.

Taste our produce….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.

Now also farming the native Angasi Oyster…….the only place on Kangaroo Island where you can taste a KI Native oyster!

Enjoy a ‘share-plate’ with friends from our Local Produce Tasting menu with a glass of the Island’s finest wine, ale or cider.  This is not a restaurant, cafe or fish &chip shop, it is a unique Kangaroo Island farm-gate experience!

Please Note: End of Season closure from January 21 to late March.  pacific oysters are out of season during Feb and March.  In previous years we have had fresh spawnless oysters to sell over Summer however due to the statewide spat (baby Oyster) shortage in South Australia we have not been able to get spawnless spat for the past couple of years.  Plan to reopen farmgate late March when the oysters come back into season!
