"Highly recommend High Country salmon. We have bought all sorts of cuts from HCS but enjoy the versatility and flavor of the salmon chunks and salmon mince alot. The salmon is DELICIOUS and the really fast shipping is a bonus. Salmon kebabs, sashimi and patties made with HCS salmon are just....YUM! The filets are also excellent quality and a fair price as well. We stop there everytime we go to Tekapo or Mt. Cook to have a good feed and feed the salmon." - Jane Taafaki-Sam, October 2021

"I had my first delivery of your wonderful salmon last month and because it had the most amazing quality and fresh taste that I had another delivery a few days ago and have already had some of that! There is absolutely NO comparison to fresh salmon bought at my local big supermarket and the fact that it comes from the South Island and we live in North Waikato and the packaging is STILL frozen just shows what an excellent service you give."Thank you SO much and we look forward to deliveries of your salmon for many years to come. Cheers!" -  Angela and Tony Herbert, October 2021

"Awesome service. Ordered on Tuesday and was advised deliveries are full until next week so even better surprise when I got the email yesterday that my salmon was on the way by overnight courier. Arrived this morning, perfectly packaged, perfectly chilled. The salmon gift pack contains far more salmon that I expected. Long overtime shifts as an essential worker and looking forward to tucking into some delicious salmon for lunch today." - Leticia Richardson, August 2021

"I thank you for providing the lunches to Twizel Area School! My child needs healthy food and she loves salmon. She is very fussy and I find your bento box perfect for her in price and convenience. She loves it. Please don't stop this is my lifesaver! Well done" - Jacquiline Palmer, 6 August 2020

"Just incredible. Melts in your mouth, incredibly tasty and world class grade of Salmon. I can hand on heart say, it does not get any better than this. The only thing you will regret is that you didn’t order more" - Sandy Elbbirg, 3 March 2020

"High Country Salmon is a fabulous place to stop in. The site and scenery are breathtaking. Feeding the salmon is always a great activity for the kids (and adults 😂) and then you can eat some too. The salmon burger is my favourite! So tasty and delicious! The staff are very friendly and the coffees are great" - Rebecca Green, 13 February 2020
