  • Description

    Description

    We are a small family run dairy farm just 5km outside of Wicklow town.
    Gordon and Thomas run the farm. Carola works with horses. David drives tractors full time. Anna and Ben play with the horses and give a hand on the farm. Sara is off studying aboard.

    On the farm, there are horses, cows, hens, peacocks, ducks, cats, dogs and more cows. The house is never quiet with something always on the go whether it be the horses, sports or the cows deciding to make a run for it.
