We source our Organic Salmon from the west coast of Ireland, originally from Clare Island, which is four miles off the coast of County Mayo in the west of Ireland, but organically grown salmon is now available from a number of sites off the west coast of Ireland.
Organic Salmon are provided with special diets that contain only organic, natural ingredients and are free of genetically modified products. Phaffia, a yeast based pigment, ensures the salmon have that natural salmon-pink colour.
Stocking densities are low, in line with organic welfare concepts. This calculates out at just 0.5% to 1% of fish by volume in the water, less than half that of conventional farms. The Irish Atlantic waters they live in are classed by the European Union as 1A in quality — the best there is. A constant 2-knot flow and high tidal exchange rates continuously flush the pens with fresh water, preventing any build up of parasites or pollutants. This natural, healthy environment and low population density allows the fish to develop good muscle and body shape.

We are going to order now for the third time a full side of ummera’s organic salom, it is so so much better than the supermarket salom.
The proof is the pudding (sorry salom)

Visited the smokehouse in May of 2019. Anthony was kind enough to share his history, experience, and samples of the most amazing smoked salmon and duck I’ve ever tasted. Cheers!
We have been buying this salmon for our Christmas lunch starter for many years. It is always the most delicious part of our meal. The flavour and texture are second to none. We have recently been buying the bacon as well, which is also delicious. Thank you to all at Ummera.

Delicious smoked organic salmon. Tried for the first time today, 200ml, beautifully sliced so there’s a real bite in it, not super thin, just perfect.
