About SA Premium Oysters
SA Premium Oysters has been a family-owned and operated oyster farm since 1990. Jeff and Colleen Holmes farm and grow their oysters in the pristine waters of the beautiful Smoky Bay, which is known around the world as one of the most respected oyster growing regions. SA Premium Oysters is one of around 24 active oyster farms that operate from the Aquaculture Park in Smoky Bay, which contributes over 30% to South Australia’s total oyster sales. SA Premium Oysters thrive as being one of the leading parts of this famous seafood frontier in the Eyre Peninsula.
SA Premium Oysters have leases situated a few kilometres around the jetty at Smoky Bay. The interesting and rewarding process of farming oysters goes from the cultivation to the management of the leases and includes the variables of wind, tide, temperature, quality, and nutrient levels. After three decades of testing, tweaking, and sampling, Jeff and Colleen are confident that their oysters are some of the highest qualities that you can find on the peninsula. For those passionate about quality seafood, it is a fascinating experience to see the process at work on their farm at Smoky Bay.
