    You will get insight into life in rural Ireland, learn about organic gardening, e.g. growing your own food and farming including how to make cheese, yoghurt etc.
    Our farm is very secluded, surrounded by beautiful a landscape with views onto Bantry Bay, so you have opprtunities to go hillwalking. Meditation is part of our daily life and you are welcome to participate if desired. The Occasionally we can give you a lift into Bantry,a very pictoresque small town at the sea.
    We speak English and German,so you can practice both.
