Husband and wife, Frank and Marianne, our local Trout farmers in Kiltullagh near Athenry, are farming Trout, the old way as they have been for the last 30 years. No fish get rushed, no ponds overstocked, no automatic feeders. All is done by hand so that “all the little guys get there fair share and all grow evenly”.
Frank’s Trout farm, is the closest thing to a “Trout Spa”…. Fish have so much space for themselves, they don’t experience stress. In the world of farming, stress free animals, means no disease. No disease means no treatment or medications.
Frank’s trout will never get certified Organic because Frank cannot stand paperwork nonsense. But if one Trout farm in Europe was to make the claim of producing “free range” Trout, this would be Franks’s farm… Enough said ???
