The Story of
GOATSBRIDGE TROUT FARM
At Goatsbridge Fish Farm, trout is our passion. Our knowledge and experience farming rainbow trout has been passed down through three generations. Each catch comes daily from the crystal clear waters of The Little Arrigle River, giving our trout unique taste and texture. We produce a range of ready to enjoy, sustainably farmed Rainbow Trout products. We love trout and we know you will too. Check out our recipe section on our website for simple, nutritious and delicious Rainbow Trout recipes.
The Story of Goatsbridge begins over 800 years ago back in 1180, when the Monks of Jerpoint Abbey near Thomastown, Co Kilkenny fished in the fast flowing waters of The Little Arrigle River in the heart of The Nore Valley. 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.
