Co Kildare turkey farmer to feature on RTE TV
16:11 Friday 15th of December 2017

RTÉ TV farming show Ear to the Ground is visiting a local turkey farmer to find out out more about the food for one of the most anticipated parts of the festive season - the Christmas dinner.

Traditionally, we all sit down and tuck into a feast of turkey, ham, brussel sprouts andspuds; with plenty of leftovers for those turkey sandwiches. But, do we know where our Christmas dinner ingredients come from and the work that goes into getting them ready for our tables?

Ear to the Ground has decided to take four urban living students to teach them just that.

Billy Gray and his family run Feighcullen Farm in Rathangan where they practice sustainable farming, putting back into the environment what they take out.

They rear free-range chickens, turkeys and geese supplying some of the top restaurants in the country.

The story features on Ear To The Ground on Thursday, December 21 on RTÉ One at 8.30pm
