All Springhills Arctic char is raised on our family’s farms in Grey County. Their incredible taste is thanks to our humane and sustainable raising methods. All Springhills fish are grown at small-scale farms with natural spring water, low densities and special diets.
All Springhills pickerel (sometimes called walleye) is wild caught from Lake Erie. It comes from a wild fishery that is internationally recognized as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council, which means it’s good for the environment and safe to eat.
Arctic char is a rare fish originating from Canada’s North. It has a milder and sweeter flavour than its distant cousin, the trout. Pickerel is esteemed for its light succulent flavour with a fine, flaked texture.
We pride ourselves on offering the freshest fish available at your door. Springhills Arctic char is humanely harvested, filleted and frozen in the same day, while Springhills pickerel is immediately submersed in ice during harvest and frozen immediately after filleting. They will keep up to 12 months in your freezer.
Springhills is a second-generation family business run by siblings Arlen and RJ Taylor. We grow rainbow trout, Arctic char and coho salmon, and also partner with independently-owned businesses to bring you an even wider variety of Ontario fish.
Note: The Arctic char will have some pinbones, whereas the pickerel has been deboned. We are a small operation that fillets by hand, which makes it difficult to remove all bones. We are upgrading our technology to offer pinbone-free trout by October. Until then, we will give you instructions in the box to remove any bones!
