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!

Fish Fillets & Bites:

We generally recommend 6 months in a deep freezer (-18C), but our shelf studies have shown our fish are good for at least 2 years from harvest. We only harvest fish as we need them, so we do not hold onto inventory for long.

Smoked Trout & Smoked Trout Dips:

All our smoked trout products come frozen. We also recommend a shelf life of 6 months in the freezer (-18C). Once they are thawed, we recommend consuming within 7 days.

Our wholesale offerings are not listed on our online store, so to order please email us at at orders@springhillsfish.ca or call us at 519-364-7803. You can also message us on Facebook or Instagram.

Monthly — We deliver throughout much of southwestern Ontario on a monthly basis, and can bring the fish for free with no order minimums! See our delivery zones

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.
