HHF Pasture Raised Turkey Production

Great additional enterprise for low time input while increasing profits.
1 day training 

July 8th 2023

Join us for a 1 day masterclass on pasture turkey production at Heather Hill Farm. You will experience first hand the systems used at Heather Hill Farm as well as learning all the critical information to bring pastured turkeys to your farm. With such a large Christmas market for turkeys you could tap into this seasonal market to add some income.


Areas covered include

  • Shelter design

  • Regulations

  • Animal health

  • Financial planning

  • Time in motion study

  • Processing Turkeys

  • Sales and Marketing

  • Predators

Having spent the last 5 years refining pastured Turkeys in an Irish context at Heather Hill Farm, we have designed this training with all the success and failures woven in, to give you a very realistic view of what is involved when it comes to time required, investment required, benefits to the soil and your land & the profitability of this enterprise. 



Training runs July 8th from 9am-4pm, there will be a farm tour and lunch provided as well as tea and coffee throughout the day. The training is split between classroom and hands on, so bring materials for taking notes as well as boots and wet gear in case of poor weather. 

Farm location, Heather Hill Farm, Brenter, Dunkineely, Co. Donegal  F94RW98

Training Cost: €100     

We are delighted to be working in partnership with the National Organic Training & Skillset for this training and they are offering subsidised rates on this training for eligible candidates, visit for more info.
