Took the three grandkids to the hatchery and they were all fascinated by all the activity. The explanatory signs tell you exactly what is going on with all the fish. Everything nice and clean and well maintained.

First of all it is FREE unless you buy food to feed the fish. Great for kids of all ages & adults too. Amazing how the fish jump for the food. Have been there a few times with & without Grand boys.

I am sure you can buy bulk food at various stores locally to your area if the hatchery cannot. Also, look at koi pond websites, they have a multitude of options.

The hatchery is free, however if you want to feed the fish there is a cost for that :)
