Manor Farm

Manor Farm  | Chef Network

Carton Brothers was founded in 1775 when they commenced trading in the Dublin Markets. In 1910 Carton Bros set up on Halston Street and housewives all over Ireland would send their chickens to them by rail. On the back of this great success the Manor Farm brand was born in 1938.

Chicken as we know it today was introduced to Ireland by Manor Farm in 1956. In 1968 the egg hatchery was built, followed quickly by an investment in a state of-the-art production site at Shercock. Co.Cavan and in 1976 Irelands only dedicated poultry feed mill was established, achieving complete integration for Manor Farm.

Throughout the 1980’s Manor Farms unique network of Irish farmers continued to grow and span generations. Today, Manor Farm with its unique plant number IE 803 EC - has one of the most modern processing facilities in Europe. The company supplies its Irish customers from all the major supermarkets, local stores, butchers and now the Irish foodservice industry .
