Farm History

Our 122-acre farm is located about 90 miles north of Corpus Christi, 110 miles southeast of San Antonio, 150 miles southwest of Houston and 120 miles south of Austin. Originally, Goliad Farms, Inc. was named Santa Fe Tropical Fish and was located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Many of our water saving techniques, including water recirculation, were developed in the much drier Santa Fe, where water was precious and wells produced much colder water requiring energy for heating. During 2001, Goliad Farms completed an arduous year and a half move of our hatchery from Santa Fe to Goliad County, Texas. Unfortunately, in the summer of 2003, as we were approaching full production for the first time in Texas, Hurricane Claudette severely damaged our greenhouse facility. We’ve since rebuilt that greenhouse and have added two additional greenhouses.
