Slab Springs Trout Farm

Slab Springs Trout Farm was built at Slabtown Spring, which is located on our beautiful property near Licking, Missouri, in the heart of the Ozarks and the Mark Twain National Forest. The spring produces 15,000,000 gallons of pristine water every day.  This water is used both to feed our 10 acre lake and to supply the trout farm. 

The spring's name, Slabtown, originated in the 1920s because the loggers of the small logging town located there, also named Slabtown, used the Big Piney River located adjacent to the little town, to float log slabs north for milling. There are ruins from the small town still in existence in the national forest next to our property. 


The 10-acre lake, created from the water issuing out of the natural spring, is home to big mouth bass, channel catfish, and black crappie among other species. 


Slab Springs Trout Farm was built on the belief that it is answering a desperate need of the people for fresh, healthy and clean food, farmed in the United States, and a calling from God to fill this need. We feel that our fish can also help to provide jobs for area residents. The site is so beautiful, it is being considered as a location for possible future use as a photography venue, wedding or event venue. 

Our trout are only some of the residents here. We also have a "gaggle" of geese and a bunch of ducks who all like to hang out together. Canadian geese cycle through all year long, as well. Transient "vagabond" wildlife includes coyotes, eagles, bobcats, deer, raccoons, and a whole host of other animals. Our 3 adorable pet border collies have no shortage of things to investigate.


Additionally, Slab Springs Trout Farm, LLC is proud to be a Woman Owned Business operating in a HUBZone. It is our goal to bring opportunity and jobs to our area.

This is where the 15 million gallons of water/day comes out
