Why buy from us?
The most important point in Koi production is the end result being a strong, healthy, robust, attractive and disease free Koi. With this in mind Richard’s production starts with parent selection; health, quality, and body confirmation are key.
The next careful consideration is put into which male/female combination is to be used.
Complete knowledge of individual parents, their bloodline lineage and traits are essential for predictable results. Individual stripping and pairing of parents gives not only cleaner fry but exact knowledge about which parent combination results in better offspring.
In summary, meticulous rearing, culling and grading gives Richard a full understanding and affinity with his Koi, producing the best quality Koi available.
