This week, I filmed an episode of my Legislative Report television show at Green-Walk Trout Hatchery Inc. in Bangor. Talking with third generation owner, Ty Bartosh and his son Jamison, you area able to understand the immense passion he has for their craft. Green-Walk uses industry leading best practices and cares about every detail. They raise and stock many species of trout including Brown, Brook, Rainbow, and Golden Rainbow. Ty also has expanded the business recently and directly ships his trout to farm to table restaurants and some Michelin starred restaurants in New York City. This speaks directly to the quality of trout he raises and all here in the Slate Belt! Take a look at the video and I hope you can watch this episode of legislative Report when it airs later this year and visit www.greenwalktrouthatchery.com for more information.
