OUR STORY

Speckhart Family Shrimp is the brainchild of Brent Speckhart & sons Daulton & Dustin Speckhart.  After hearing about indoor shrimp farms that were popping up in the Midwest, Brent started researching and learning about the indoor shrimp farming industry, and soon after, Speckhart Family Shrimp Farm was born.  Brent and the boys spent about six months converting an older hog building into an insulated "shrimp barn" to house the shrimp pools, and the farm received its first delivery of shrimp larvae in January 2016.  The Speckhart family is committed to producing the healthiest shrimp for your family's dinner table and raises pacific white shrimp in an environment that is temperature controlled without the use of hormones or antibiotics.
