Looking to expand apart from the individual and wholesale markets, agritoursim seemed the next logical step for the Denison’s trout farm. Having been asked repeatedly if they allow "fish-out" or for tours by both community members and the occasional tourist seeking entertainment and a farm-fresh meal, they now began to consider agritourism as a viable option for their business this year.

Expected income over a two-year period – $24,000.

With the help of this grant "We will work to help meet the growing public demand for a healthier lifestyle by providing our delicious rainbow trout for sale and consumption."
