Your Whitefish Pate’ is outstanding.  I bought some today at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market .  It was pure and fresh and I devoured it. Afterward I read the ingredients and saw why because there’s no crap in it. Thank you for a delicious product and I will return to sample your other wares!

Ann Arbor, MI

These Whitefish fillets are delicious!


Smoked Laker Bites — What a treat! Im from Michigan and moving to Indy made good fish like this difficult to find. I highly recommend trying this if you havent. This is a premier Michigan party in your mouth. Smoked just enough. Just fatty enough. Just right! Thanks for keeping the price in line.


Smoked Whitefish Pate — Excellent! So fresh tasting, very mild, absolutely delicious with crackers, and seasoned perfectly.


Whitefish Fillet — I cut this into chunks and made a soup with white miso and blood orange and it was great. It felt clean, not gunky, and lasted a few meals.


Walleye Fillet — The Walleye fillet tasted like one I caught fresh myself.  Excellent piece of fish at a good price.  I’ll be ordering this often!


Smoked Whiteish Pate — Had this on toasted english muffins from another vendor. Crackers would be great with this. Good Super Bowl addition. Great Tasting!


Laker Patties — This was seasoned well and easy to fix!
