The Rivers


“This product is amazing, ChalkStream® should be really proud”

Jamie Oliver


The Farms


“Each winter, the rain falls high on the sheep-grazed downs then seeps into the chalk seam hundreds of feet below the ground. Filtered, purified and chilled, the water emerges months later to form such famous rivers as the Test and Itchen. The closest thing to heaven on earth for rearing trout.”

Simon Cooper - The Field (author of Life of a Chalkstream)


The Fish


“There has been a trout revival recently, largely down to the trout-friendly chalkstreams we have in the UK, as well as the passion of producers such as ChalkStream®

Yottam Ottolenghi - chef, restauranteur and food writer
