From our family to yours

Springhills Fish is a second-generation family fish farm in Grey County. Owners and siblings Arlen and RJ Taylor pride themselves on humane and ethical practices that result in incredible tasting, fresh fish.


After raising fish for 25 years, it took a pandemic for us to realize our dreams of processing and delivering fish. In 2020 we started dropping off fish in our local community, and now we deliver fish off to 1,000 homes a month and growing!

"Springhills Fish is the only fish that we have ever carried at The Market Shoppe. We love how local they are and their customer service is second to none! The quality and care they put into what they do keeps our customers coming back for more! We also always have some of their amazing trout in our freezer at home because it is a hit with the kids and grown ups!"

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What do you recommend for retail pricing?

Here is the typical pricing for these types of fish at major grocery retailers. The fish sold at major retailers at these prices are not necessarily local, eco-certified, vac-packed, or as fresh as Springhills fish.

  • Rainbow Trout - $13 -15/lb (our price $9.50/lb)

  • Arctic Char - $20/lb (our price $12.50 - 13/lb)

  • Pickerel - $20/lb seasonally (our price $14 - $14.50/lb))

  • Barramundi - $30/lb imported (our price $16 - 17/lb)

  • Salmon - $19 - 22/lb

We suggest the following ranges for the 2lb packs, based on feedback from other retailers:

  • Rainbow Trout - $25 - 30 ea.

  • Arctic Char - $35 - 40 ea.

  • Pickerel - $35 - 40 ea.

  • Barramundi - $40 - 50 ea.

  • Salmon - $35 - 40 ea.

  • Smoked Trout (1.2lb) - $35 - 40 ea.

 

How does delivery work?

We deliver throughout much of southwestern Ontario on a monthly basis, and can bring the fish for free!

See our delivery zones

We can delivery outside our schedule or delivery zones for an extra charge. Or you can pick up at our farm at any time near Hanover, Ontario.

 

Do you have content I can share on social media or a website?

You can grab as many photos as you like from our shared folder here.

 

Why do some retail packs cost more?

We do ask for a bit more for the 2lb packs because of the costs of the pouches, stickers, and often we're adding 0.5lb/case by the end trying to hit that 2lb mark for each pack.

 

Can I get fresh fish (not frozen)?

We sell all our fish frozen. But one of the most common things we hear from our customers is how the fish tastes so much fresher than what they are used to getting.


That’s because we are small-scale producers, and we actually bring the fish live to the plant, and it’s harvested, filleted, deboned, vac-packed and in the blast freezer in less than 6 hours. 

We are only set up to provide frozen fish for now.
