The Story of Goatsbridge Premium Irish Trout
In 1180, the nearby Jerpoint Abbey was built by Cistercian monks who in addition to leading a life of prayer made their surroundings productive through hard labour.Fish was an important part of their diet and they fished the clear fast waters of the Little Arrigle River which ran close to the Abbey.
In 1961 this river gave life to the creation of our first fish ponds; running through our lands it now forms the heart of one of Irelands best known trout farms.
In 1990 the second generation of our family continued to develop the farm and in 2010 a state of the art processing and packaging facility was added to the farm to further ensure the quality of the trout produced on the farm. Now we are the market leader in fresh trout and we are constantly working to produce innovative and tasty new products using our fish.
