Rushing Waters’ Trout Featured in Grey Rock’s August Farm to Table
04 Aug, 2016
Rolling out their latest Farm to Table dish, Amanda Fendryk, Grey Rock’s lead chef, is showcasing Rushing Waters Fisheries and their fresh trout.
Rushing Waters Fisheries is Wisconsin’s largest trout farm, operating in Palmyra since the 1940s. Taking advantage of the natural spring water ponds in Kettle Moraine State Forest, their trout is raised naturally and chemical free.
On 80 acres of pristine forests and valleys, 56 ponds are fed with crystal-clear artesian spring water. These deep underground springs maintain a very cold water temperature ideal for producing healthy rainbow trout year-round.
“Still swimming when you order,” is how fresh their fish is! The particular species that Rushing Waters Fisheries raises is called a “Kamloop.” Hatched and then grown right in their ponds, these Kamloops are fed a specially formulated diet, plus have access to wild foods that make for exceptional fish.
“I am always excited to see what our great state has to offer and even more excited to find places that have unique aspects”, said Amanda Fendryk, who began Grey Rock’s Farm to Table initiative. “Rushing Waters Fisheries is one of those places, operating on the edge of Kettle Moraine in natural conditions.”
You can try Rushing Waters Fisheries’ fresh rainbow trout in Grey Rock’s latest Farm to Table special. Savor pan seared trout served with a white wine garlic herb butter sauce and aromatic multigrain pilaf. The special is available through August 31.
