Preserving Tradition


Farne combines in its operation, the best of cold and hot methods of smoking. From the traditional heritage comes the art of dry salting salmon to preserve and flavour. Smoke produced from the finest quality wood chips in our kilns produces a rich smoky aroma together with a luscious texture.



In sharp contrast to these traditional methods, are rigidly enforced computer controlled quality and hygiene assurances. Every batch of incoming fish is analysed against an agreed specification. All batches produced through the salt and smoke process are monitored in the laboratory for salt and moisture content.


Farne is one of the Laberyie group of companies. Being part of a major international gourmet food group has advantages such as buying power and group synergies. These, together with capital investment, will help grow our business making it the most efficient producer of smoked salmon in the UK, possibly Europe.



Farne’s success depends on all of our people sharing an enthusiasm for making fantastic products. It’s a dynamic business which is constantly evolving and we would like you to join us on our journey.



Our factory produces mainly fresh salmon products. The factory is separated into 4 distinct activities: cold smoked, hot smoked, ready-to eat and natural salmon.  We also produce a range of Mackerel products for our customers – try them, they taste fantastic!!



At Farne we make it our number one priority to treat people well, help them develop and give them a rewarding working experience with us.
