Some of the most common questions we receive – almost everything you’d want to know about Brady Family Christmas Ham and Homebird Christmas Turkey. But if you have a question that isn’t answered below, feel free to contact us directly here.

My Delivery

What day will you deliver?

All of our Christmas hams and turkeys will be delivered between Monday the 19th of December and Friday the 23rd of December. All orders will be delivered by the Brady Family team direct to your door. You will be contacted one day in advance to inform you that your order is out for delivery the following day. Unfortunately, we cannot cater to requests for specific delivery dates or times.

How will my order be packed?

Your ham and/or turkey will be packed with coolants to ensure it retains the temperature throughout the delivery chain. Please refrigerate the product once received.

What measures are you taking to safely deliver products to your customers?

All our drivers will be regularly hand sanitising and will wear masks to ensure safe delivery to our customers.

Do you send orders abroad?

Currently, we can only ship to the Republic of Ireland.

My Ham

I could not get home in time and my ham or turkey was left out all night. What should I do?

Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that the ham or turkey maintained temperature overnight and so our recommendation is not to use the product if you did not get it into the fridge the evening the ham was delivered.

What happens if I order past the deadline of 16th December at 12 noon?

As our hams and turkeys are freshly produced to order, latest orders will be accepted on 16th December 12 noon unless product is already sold out beforehand. Our Christmas hams are still listed in selected Supervalu, Tesco, Dunnes Stores, and independent stores so it may still be possible to purchase our products there. Please contact us directly here to see if we can assist you in any way beyond this date.

Is your Ham and Turkey cooked?

Yes our ham and turkeys are cooked saving you valuable time this Christmas. Our Brady Family Christmas Ham and Homebird Turkey are produced using 100% Irish meat and are simple to reheat. The steps to reheat your ham or Turkey are below. Do not reheat your ham or turkey more than once.


Can you reheat your ham or turkey joint more than once?

No. For food health and safety reasons please do not reheat your ham or turkey more than once.

Where does your meat come from?

Brady Family ham and Homebird turkey are exclusively produced from Bord Bia Approved Irish farmers.

Can I freeze your Christmas ham and turkey?

While it’s possible to freeze both the ham and turkey, we do not recommend freezing our ham and turkey joints as they are best enjoyed fresh without further temperature treatment.

My Order

What size ham and turkey do I need?

We recommend the Brady Family 4kg Ham on the bone for larger gatherings, as it serves approximately 16 portions. It’s perfect for St. Stephens Day also!

The Brady Family Baked 2.25kg Baked Half Ham is more suited to smaller gatherings of 8 people or less.

The Homebird Boneless Turkey 1.8kg is also perfect for gatherings of 8 or less.
