Our History

Colorado’s Frontier Trout Ranch has provided premium fresh fish to the food service industry since 2013. However, the land and water that make up Frontier Trout Ranch has long-cultivated fresh fish for the area.

Located in the town of Saguache in the San Luis Valley of southern Colorado, the land upon which Frontier Trout Ranch sits served as a trout hatchery as early as the 1940s and by the 1960s was raising more the 500,000 trout annually. Similarly, the same deep artesian well that supplies the water for Frontier Trout Ranch and is an essential part of our ability to raise clean, healthy fish within a sustainable environment also proved valuable for the early fish farmers of the 1940s.
