Farne Salmon and Trout's Duns factory is now amongst the biggest smoked salmon facilities in Europe, but from small beginnings. In 1982 Farne started trading with a staff of 6. Now, Farne is the biggest private employer in the Borders with a core workforce of 500 people. As well as smoked salmon, Farne also produces a growing range of added value products, based on or containing salmon, shellfish and other fish varieties. Fish, mainly salmon, is sourced from several geographical origins, of which Scottish is the foremost. The company specialises in bespoke specifications of smoked salmon. Salmon can be smoked from 7- 36 hours using a variety of techniques, kilns, and woods, from oak, to hickory and apple. Farne products are sold under retailer brands or the Farne brand in UK and exported to Europe; countries include France, Belgium; Holland; Switzerland and Italy.
