From our family to yours

Springhills Fish is a second-generation family fish business 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 1,500 homes a month and growing!

We have two options for delivery:

  • Weekly — We deliver to any even larger area in Ontario on a weekly basis using Annex Distribution. Ask us about this option and we can quote out delivery.

You can also pick up at our farm anytime near Hanover, Ontario.

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 5 hours. So it’s fresher than fresh!

​We are only set up to provide frozen fish.
