The Friendly Farmer

The Friendly Farmer aka Ronan Byrne produces his free range meat and especially poultry from the families 35 acre farm outside Athenry, East Galway where he grew up, and which once belonged to his grandparents.

It was in 2007, after Ronan returned from Poland (where he managed a large scale dairy farm) that the farm was switched to an ‘open pasture’ method of farming, in an attempt to redress the balance of intensive poultry production and the growing demand for better quality. The farm also has the most beautiful Pyrenean Mountain dogs, these dogs are classed as ‘livestock guardians’ and when properly trained will protect whatever livestock they live with.

The Friendly Farmer has received both financial and soft supports from the Galway County & City Enterprise Board. Find out more about The Friendly Farmer on their website thefriendlyfarmer.blogspot.ie
