  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of four living in a traditional farmhouse on 10 acres of land which looks onto a lake. We plan to convert this into a forest garden, meadows and an orchard.

    We're currently in the process of restoring a traditional Irish barn built in the 1850s.

    Over the next few weeks we would be grateful for some help with the garden.

    We live very near to some beautiful beaches and mountain ranges.
