Since 1856, Star Prairie’s ice-cold spring water has provided an ideal natural habitat for commercial trout-raising. Fifteen hundred gallons per minute of flow at a steady rate and temperature provide open water and continuous growth and harvests year-round.

PREMIUM QUALITY TROUT are now available delivered direct from these springs to all Twin Cities area fish lovers. Quality is assured by our swift water flow, 47° degree temperature and natural, custom feeding. Freshness is assured by our proximity--less than an hour from Minneapolis and St. Paul--and by our commitment to personalized service.

In our Class A hatchery, we raise trout from eggs. It takes about 22 months for trout to reach adult size of 12 inches long and 3/4 pound. As they grow, trout progress to different ponds according to size.
