In the early 1990’s some of our customers requested cooked turkey breast.
Our late mother, Teresa Hogan decided to cook up some plain, natural turkey breast in her Aga oven at home.
The customers loved it and as demand began to grow, we invested in a small industrial oven and cooking plant - Faughan Foods, which we built in Rathcairn Co. Meath. (named after Faughan Hill close to Hogan's Farm).
This started out with just three part time staff cooking large bulk breast meat for Delis and butchers across Leinster.
Towards late 1990’s cooked turkey became increasingly popular and a new much bigger state of the art factory was built with the support of An Ùdaràs na Gaeltachta .
In 2003, Bia Faughan Teo (Faughan Foods Ltd.) new state of the art cooking facility was complete and we were able to expand our offering to producing sliced aswell as bulk cooked turkey, chicken and beef products.
Faughan Foods became one of the largest suppliers of sliced and bulk cooked meats to the Irish Retail market .
Predominantly producing under Retailers own brands for the likes of Dunnes Stores, Aldi Brannans and Specially Selected, SuperValu and more.
This facility was recently sold in April 2017 to another long established Family Owned Business in the cooked meats sector -
O'Brien Fine Foods (OBFF), the producers of renowned Brady Famaily Ham.
OBFF continue to cook poultry products in Faughan Foods including the Hogan's Farm Brand and for retailers as well as their own brand
'Homebird' brand is a collabortation of Irish families coming together to produce a quality product for Irish Customers.
We rear and produce Irish turkey all year round for the cooked turkey slices under Homebird brand and Manor Farm rear and produce Irish Chicken for the chicken slices.
