We have two ‘growing on’ sites and a hatchery based in the Peak District National Park. Our main site (Leadmill) is located in the Hope Valley. It is fed by a tributary of the River Derwent producing natural pure clear water sourced from springs and the surrounding hills. Our hatchery located close to the site is spring fed.
Our second site is situated on the Chatsworth Estate near Bakewell. The ponds there use spring water issuing from the surrounding limestone peaks.
We use large earth ponds on both sites to grow our fish enabling them to live in a relatively natural environment. These native conditions make it less stressful for the fish upon transfer into most waters. We are able to produce excellent hardy muscular fish as we stock at low densities and use high quality feed.
We supply Riparian Owners, Fishing Clubs, Estates, Water Authorities and Fisheries of various sizes with brown, blue and rainbow trout to restock their fishing lakes, reservoirs, rivers and ponds. The fish are sold by weight generally ranging from 0.5lb to 8 lbs. Larger sized fish can be ordered by prior arrangement. We can also supply Ova, Fry and Fingerlings upon prior notice.
