Northwinds Rainbow Trout

NORTHWINDS TROUT

Richard Graves has a farm situated between Ponoka and Westaskiwin. He was a cattle farmer and a grain farmer. It was discovered in 1992 that there were very deep, running deposits of gravel on his property. The pits that were left behind are up to 60 feet deep, with rock and gravel lining, no mud. In true farmer fashion, Richard determined that the best use for the gaping caverns was to start raising fish. Richard has put a vast amount of time, energy and resources into his first class “Happy Fish Farm”.

RAINBOW TROUT: FISH OF CHOICE

Rainbow Trout was Richard’s fish of choice. They feed on natural occurring pond resources and are supplemented with a cereal based pellet diet, with no added growth hormones or antibiotics. Richard is very particular about all aspects of his operation. Every fish is caught by hook and line by Richard himself. The 4 ponds in use presently are in a very parklike setting and Richard is quick to notice that the addition of the fish ponds has created a much different scene in the ecological balance of wildlife on his property. From eagles to bears, they come in search of the abundant Rainbow Trout. He is one of a few provincially regulated fish processors in Alberta. Richard makes over 20 different products from his Rainbow Trout. The fish is impeccable in flavor and some of our favourite products include the boneless fillets, smoked trout, cranberry garlic coil (smoked), trout patties and sweet heat pepperoni.
