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.
Today, husband and wife team Mag and Ger Kirwan are at the center of the Goatsbridge story. They live on the farm with their family and work together to carry on the proud tradition of purity and sustainability. Each daily catch comes directly from the crystal clear Irish waters of The Little Arrigle to your table. They have a passion for trout, which comes across in the quality of their product.
Trout is called an oily fish due to the beneficial omega 3 fats, EPA and DHA that it contains. Precursors to these fats are found in some nuts, seeds and avocadoes, but the omega 3 fats in these foods rely on the body converting the fats to EPA and DHA. When we eat oily fish, such as trout, the fish have done the conversion for us so the beneficial oils are more readily available to the body.
Just 100 grammes of trout will provide over 1000 milligrammes of the EPA and DHA. These fats are vital for brain function and development, hormone health, fertility, skin, hair and nail health and energy. The omega 3 fats also have anti-inflammatory effects so are useful in inflammatory disorders such as arthritis.
Trout is a good source of minerals including selenium and iron. Selenium is needed for thyroid function, fertility, removal of heavy metals and immune function. Iron is needed for energy production and hair and nail health to name a few of its functions.
Trout is also a good source of vitamin B12, a vitamin that is poorly absorbed from supplements. B12 is needed for energy, muscle development, bone health, brain function, digestion and the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
Trout also contains niacin (vitamin B3) which is particularly important for nervous system function and brain health.
