Pasture Fed Poultry from Athenry

Posted in Galway


Ronan Byrne - AKA The Friendly Farmer - is a familiar figure at Galway and Moycullen farmers’ markets, where he sells the free range meat and - especially - poultry - produced on the 35 acre farm outside Athenry in East Galway where he grew up, and which once belonged to his grandparents.

He’s living proof that a small mixed farm can be viable, but it didn’t happen by chance. Having studied Agri-business & Marketing, he spent some time working in finance, marketing and promotions - and managing a large-scale dairy farm in Poland - before returning to the family farm with a plan to specialise in high quality produce for the local market.
