(URBANA, OH) -- Head North from Cincinnati about 96 miles, an hour and forty minutes and you'll find yourself at Ohio's largest indoor fish hatchery.

We've got "bullfrog tadpoles, painted turtles sliders snapping turtles."

Freshwater Farms of Ohio's primary purpose is stocking people's ponds. But even if you don't have a pond you can take a self guided tour, feed some very hungry fish, and when was the last time you pet a sturgeon?

"They're very tame fish they don't have any teeth some people need some reassurance because they look somewhat shark like prehistoric animals."

Yours truly was one of those people, but Ben swears they don't have any teeth.

After you check out the hatchery you can check out what they have to sink your teeth into at the farm market.

And it's all one tank away.
