McFarland Springs Trout

The owners of McFarland springs trout farm in Susanville, CA set out to do the impossible - create a sustainable aquaculture system that would use 0% fish byproduct without the use of soy and other potentially harmful feeds.  The beautiful rainbow trout are raised in water raceways powered by a naturally heavy flowing stream.  In addition to providing pristine water from the Sierras to raise these amazing fish, the stream running through McFarland Springs also generates all of the electricity to run the operation!  How's that for sustainable?!

How much does a share include?

1 full share will include between 1 lbs of fillet - there are some pin bones that remain, but they are easy to deal with!  This should be enough for 2-3 people.  Half shares include .5 lbs of Rainbow Trout.

Why farmed fish?

Antibiotics, densely populated farms, lack of clean water, and excessive use of forage fish in the feed are just a few reasons why farmed fish is something we avoid; however, McFarland Springs Trout is a totally different story.  The amazing people at McFarland Springs are committed to the future of fish farming and they address each and every one of our concerns with excitement.  Their passion for this beautiful fish is clear as day once you have a fillet in your hands.  The fish are fed a 100% vegetarian diet without the use of any antibiotics or heavy metals which results in a delicious fish that has zero trace of mercury.  They are raised in raceways that are fed from natural springs at the foothills of the Sierras - meaning that the water flowing through the fish's environment is constantly fresh.
