Rushing Waters Trout Farm

Rushing Waters Trout Farm Palmyra, WI Farming isn’t just a Monday through Friday job – it’s an every day, every hour job – in particular when your goal is the highest-quality, freshest trout available. Over the years, their philosophy has changed: quality over quantity. In fact, the farm has been chemical free since 1999. The lack of harmful chemicals improved not only the quality of their fish, but also of the water and the land. Rushing Waters hatches their rainbow trout from egg and raises them up to one pound for onsite harvesting.
