Danbury Fish Farms is the largest freshwater fish farm and remains The Best Texas Fish Hatchery in Texas and is owned and operated by Kenny Zwahr.

Danbury Fish Farms is the oldest and largest Texas Fish Hatchery offering various species and quantities of freshwater fish for sale. Our operation has been selling fish for stocking ponds to families, ranchers, and businesses for over 40 years. After we incurred some storm damage in 2008, we turned a bad situation into an opportunity for growth and renewal.

“We are fortunate to have met and partnered with Joe “Cuatro” Strack IV of J4 Building Solutions based out of El Campo, Texas, to facilitate the reconstruction of a new and improved Danbury Fish Farms”, says Zwahr. With Cuatro, we started from the ground up, building new offices, fish hatcheries, and fish holding facilities. New piping and plumbing ensure the safety of our fish for stocking ponds and create a streamline transfer and delivery process to our customers. These improvements have left us with a state-of-the-art facility that solidifies Danbury Fish Farms as the best Texas Fish Hatchery.

The Danbury staff are proud that their new facilities can welcome old and new customers seeking freshwater fish for sale. They have recently worked with many large golf courses and Texas ranchers who need freshwater fish for stocking ponds. Danbury Fish Farms has an on-site fisheries’ biologist and a combined 40 years of experiencing in raising freshwater fish and managing lakes and ponds.

Texas Rebuilt Barn Homes

One trend in many rural areas is to convert an existing barn into a barn home.  For example, enterprising Texas landowners are converting agricultural barns into unique and comfortable homes.  This trend increases with the end of government some allotments.

Even if no barn exists on the land it is still possible to add an “old barn” – if the landowner has the money.  J4 specializes in finding and providing actual barn frames, design assistance, and construction for people who want to build unique barn homes. This builds on the fact that landowners are demanding more energy-efficient (i.e., greener) homes.  This approach uses recycled materials from all parts of a barn – including frame, siding, flooring, roof, beams, and foundation stone

This approach starts with reclaimed historic barn frames as the “core” feature of a barn home.  Incorporating barn wood adds charm and beauty, as well as the character of vintage lumber. Different woods blend well with the overall theme of a barn home.

This style of barn home can encompass the entire spectrum from rustic to modern.  The reclaimed lumber does save trees – as well as the energy and costs of milling and producing new wood.  However, they are also the most expensive alternative.
