PC: Sunburst Trout Farm

NC Rainbow Trout!

Sunburst Trout Farms

– Waynesville, NC

New this week in the Market!

For 70 years, three generations of the same family in Waynesville, NC have striven to maintain an innovative, modern trout production while keeping that personal touch only a family can provide.

Sunburst Trout is:

  • Sustainably Raised in waters from the Shining Rock National Wilderness

  • 3rd generation family-owned & operated

  • NO ANTIBIOTICS

  • Farm-raised

  • Hormone Free

  • Mammalian by-product Free

  • Certified lab tested free of PCB’s, Mercury, or any pesticides

We make every attempt to maintain the quality of the environment through numerous efforts. Our water for the cultivation of our trout is used only four times before it is put into a holding pond where it is allowed to settle out the limited amount of solids which remains in suspension upon leaving the the last cultivation raceway. We monitor the water quality to assure that no change occurs to the integrity of the stream. Our special feed formulas are also low in phosphorus which helps contribute to maintaining the pristine quality of the water. How do we solve the problem of discarding the waste accumulated during the production process?

We compost every scrap every day. If you have ever kept a garden, you may have made your own compost from kitchen scraps, and you know how important compost can be for the cultivation of plants in an all natural way. Here at Sunburst we have designed a process in which forced air is fed through the compost wind-rows.

When sawdust is added to the waste and air is introduced to the system, a natural bacteria forms which breaks down the tissue leaving only beneficial minerals and nutrients which makes for a natural fertilizer. Each spring local farmers and gardeners buy the compost for a nominal fee. We feel good to be able to give back something for the good of all.
