Whole Butterflied Manx Kipper

Breakfast like a king! Part of our sustainable fish range.

Deep smoky flavours combined with the oily delicacy of herring, make Coombe Farm Organic kippers something of a taste sensation. A real old-school breakfast table favourite, the kipper is enjoying a new surge in popularity as people recognize the benefits of including oily fish in a balanced diet. Our Manx kippers are cold smoked for a naturally fragrant finish in a traditional smokehouse on the Isle of Man.

At Coombe Farm Organic we only stock sustainable fish. The herrings used for our kippers are caught using sustainable fishing techniques off the coast of the Isle of Man and approved by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). The MSC is an independent non-profit organization which sets a standard for sustainable fishing - assuring seafood products that have come from well-managed and sustainable fisheries, ensuring healthy oceans and safeguarding seafood supplies for the future.

Coombe Farm Organic kippers are made from herring that are landed on day boats caught to the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Standards, the fishmongers fillet the fish before they head off be smoked. We've partnered with a smoked-food expert who does things the old-fashioned way. That means all you'll taste in your kipper is salt from the cure, smoke and beautiful pink herring flesh. No preservatives, chemicals or flavourings have snuck in there. The smoking process is reassuringly slow and non-industrial, with small batches of fish basking in and soaking up the flavours of oak smoke.

Product FAQs

  • We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday and you will be able to choose your preferred delivery day at the checkout. The delivery charge is £3.95.

  • Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.

    Fisheries catch fillet and freeze all sustainable and organic fish before it arrives to us by blast freezing. It’s done at the point of the fishmongers filleting the fish, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.

    It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh fish would be much more challenging.

  • Sustainability is a key concept when it comes to choosing the fish that you eat. It's measured in three ways. Firstly, the number of fish taken from the sea must leave behind a healthy, productive population that can reproduce quickly enough to support the levels at which they're fished. Secondly, environmental impact on habitats, ecosystems and other species must be minimised. And thirdly, fisheries must be well managed, be humane and be able to adapt to environmental changes. At Coombe Farm Organic, we work with fishing partners who fish to the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) standards with a responsible attitude that reflects our organic farming ethos.

    Can't Find the Answer?

    If you cannot find the answer to your question and would like to speak to someone contact us and we will be happy to help.

Kippers don't need to be cooked, just warmed through, so for the breakfast of champions, simply grill your kippers on each side for 3 minutes or so. Serve with lots of generously buttered brown bread and poached or scrambled egg, if you're ravenous. That'll certainly set you up for the day. If you're worried about the smell of sizzling kippers (we love it, but it is an acquired taste) but still like to indulge, try 'jugging' them. Just fill a suitably tall and wide jug with boiling water, pop the kippers in, after around 10 minutes take them out and drain them.
