Ger and Paula Lalor came to Ballybryan in 1982.  Ger is originally from Kilbeggan and Paula is from Kildare Town. They have three adult children, Rosemary, Helen and David.  Originally a tillage farm, 25 years ago they made the fateful decision to start raising and selling turkeys.

After starting out with just 50 Turkeys, they now raise around 650 birds every year.  In order to provide a natural and healthy source of food for the Turkeys the decision was made to grow an orchard.  This proved successful and with more apples than the Turkeys could eat, Ger and Paula started juicing the excess apples.

Contrary to popular misconception, the meat from a bronze turkey isn't dark, the turkey is called 'Bronze' due to the bronze colouring present on the bird's breast feathers - the meat is actually a winter white colour.  And it's delicious, especially with a glass of Ballybryan Apple juice to wash it down!
