Our Story

Now a thriving success, Maperath Farm’s Christmas Turkeys and Geese came from very humble beginnings.

About 8 years ago a fox found its way onto our farm and killed our pet goose. Our whole family was deeply upset by this incident and my wife suggested that we buy a dew turkeys to cheer everyone up. I took this idea and ran with it. I returned home one day with 100 one day old turkeys with a plan to rear them and sell them directly to the public for their Christmas dinners.

It was a tough year caring for these baby chicks. We incorporated all the principals of free range farming and looked after our fledgling turkeys as newborn babies. Those 100 turkeys sparked a passion here at Maperath Farm that only continues to grow stronger.

That first year we sold all 100 birds. 8 years later, we now sell turkeys and geese every year to friends and family. I attribute our growing success to the fact that our birds live happy, healthy lives. Our turkeys and geese are reared on the principals of free range and sustainable farming. Maperath Farm knows that, without a doubt, a happy turkey is a tasty turkey.

As our business has grown we continue to sell directly to the public as well as to a number of select retailers and local butchers. We also supply some restaurants directly, and we have built up relationships with chefs who are committed to buying local and featuring it on their menu.

Every Day is Christmas at Maperath Farm

While many only start thinking about their Christmas about their Christmas turkey in December, at Maperath Farm we think about the festive season every single day.

Our baby chicks and goslings come to us in March and April when they are just a day old and the countdown to the big day begins. From the early months of spring right up to Christmas Eve we have turkey on the brain and spend our days caring for up to a thousand birds.

“Best Turkeys in the Country.”
Adrian Rourke

“Gorgeous turkey - tasty and moist. So nice we went back for another for New Year’s dinner.”
Martina Corcoran

“What an awesome place! As soon as you pass the front gate, you receive a salutation from a bunch of geese and a white horse. Driving further down the roads are hundreds of Turkeys and lovely “little” pigs. So really nice, especially for someone visiting from New York City. Great job Eoin and Olivia! Keep up your fabulous work!”
Sidney Brito
