  • Description

    Description

    Hello, we are a small farm in the northwest of Ireland. We speak ENGLISH, GERMAN, POLISH, TURKISH, MANDARIN, CANTONESE, and MALAY. We are 25min. away by car from the next bigger city (SLIGO). We breed mainly Dexter cattle and we keep Pigs. We have one connemara mare and also some dogs and some cats. We grow a few vegetables and fruit for our self.
    Also, we have a willow basket maker living with us who makes all kinds of Willow Baskets.
    We offer a room, bathroom and a farm-kitchen where we all cook & eat together.
    If you like cooking, animals, gardening, cattle, pigs and dogs and cats and lovely people you're the right one for us.
    If you have any questions, you're welcome to send us your application via e-mail.
    Best regards

    DISCLAIMER:
    We do not ask for any help with the Produce for sale on our farm!
