Salmon-Safe is joining with Idaho partners Friends of the Teton River, Henry’s Fork Foundation, and The Nature Conservancy of Idaho to roll out a new Trout-Safe certification program for Idaho farmers and ranchers. To achieve Trout-Safe certification, farms are assessed by an independent inspector for water quality and habitat conservation practices. For farms assessed this year, there’s no cost for growers to participate in Trout-Safe.

Check out Trout Hero IPA from Payette Brewing, the first beer sourced from Trout-Safe certified hops and grains, available statewide at retail or on draft.

Hops: Chinook, Idaho Gem, and Cashmere hops from Gooding Farms, Parma, Idaho

Malts: Linc Malts, Francin Pilsner Malt, and Buzz Pale Malt from Clearwater Farms, Nezperce, Idaho

Idaho growers, food companies, brewers, and others are invited to connect with the Trout-Safe team to learn more.
