  • Description

    Description

    We are bee farmers with an organic view of gardening and farming. We are aiming to be self sufficient and to hope sell any extra produce locally in the future. The main focus is always on breeding bees and all that that entails. The area we live in is very unspoilt with mainly grasslands. There is very good fishing, walking, wild beaches and beautiful mountains within reach, Irish music and dancing in the local towns.
