Dan Vogler owns Harrietta Hills Trout Farm LLC, the largest private fish farm in Michigan.  For 22 years, he has been on the farm with his parents Jim and Katherine, his wife Susan, and their six children.  He’s president of the Michigan Aquaculture Association, and he served on the Board of Directors of the United States Trout Farmers Association for a number of years.  He’s also very active in Michigan Farm Bureau.  He likes what his children call ‘productive’ hobbies, like cutting firewood – even though they have a propane furnace – mountain biking, deer hunting, and yes, even fishing.

Listen as he talks about:

  • His standing lunch date with his wife
  • What percentage of seafood is local vs. imported
  • What fish eat when they’re not the same size as their peers
  • Why homeschooling works well for his family
  • Why you can’t immediately see the thousands of animals on his farm
