DIY and building projects
For those interested in outdoors we are close to the sea and close to stare forsts. We are also close to historical centres such as Glendalough national park with its historical site stretching back before 600AD
For those interested in poultry or animal behaviour and animal welfare research this is a centre for active research in these fields.
It is also a working farm with a hatcher for geese and duck and a milking herd of jersey and friesian cows. We are concerned with recent EU developments emphasis on short food chains and now customers come to the farm to purchase milk directly from the farm and also ducklings and goslings.
We are in the Irish country side close to the sea in a very scenic area.
