Its hard to believe but its nearly that time of the year again, the fairy lights are coming down, the nights are long and the Christmas trees are being eyed up for harvesting. Its a time of year we all look forward to but for Ger and Paula Lalor its also the busiest time of year as there Turkey farm moves into full production mode.
The Lalors are highly experienced in rearing, processing and selling Open-Range Bronze Turkeys. They commenced this business in 1995 and started with only 50 birds. They now sell over 650 Bronze Turkeys each Christmas.
People travel from all over Ireland to buy their special Christmas Turkey from Ballybryan Farm. They have built up a steady base of highly satisfied repeat customers, who maintain that Christmas just wouldn't be the same without the annual trip to the farm to collect their 'old fashioned taste of Christmas' - a perfectly finished Bronze Turkey.
The Turkey enterprise will be passed down to the next generation of Lalors to continue the tradition of free-roaming, hand-plucked Bronze Turkeys for the Christmas table.
