East Ferry Farm is run by Robert and Yvonne Fitzsimmons. It is a family run business and all our poultry is reared on our family farm in the traditional way. We are well known for our Irish Free Range produce.
Robert grew up in East Ferry, Midleton where generations of Fitzsimmons’ have lived. Coming from a farming background he has always had a great interest in livestock, poultry and the outdoors.
Rearing poultry is not a new concept to him as his mother produced poultry for sale, chickens and turkeys. She produced approximately 700 Turkeys each year for private sales.
She produced chickens for the likes of Ballymaloe House and Ballymaloe Cookery School, Arbutus Lodge, The Midleton Park Hotel formally known as the Sherwood in that time.
