When taking a tour around 41 Degrees South, people can experience farming in a natural setting. Salmon are grown in fresh waters, which flow, gravity fed, into the salmon tanks and through natural and man-made wetlands. The farm was carved out of of willow and gorse infested scrub in 1998. A patchwork of wetland grasses, freshwater ponds, dykes, wetlands, marshes and fen set along the western creek rivulet. The wetland was not only created to attract a wide variety of birds, it′s aim was to also be used as a natural biofilter for the salmon farm. There is always something to see here as changing seasons bring different birds and give them a place to feed, breed, nest and rest. Things to do at our farm include a self-guided tour of the farm and wetlands wandering past the fresh water salmon ponds, ginseng nursery, boardwalk through wetlands and viewing area of Montana Cascades.
