  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our farm and our life style supports no animal harming and for that reason we are vegetarians.
    We don't drink alcohol or smoke as it doesn't fit with our daily yoga and meditation practices, which anyone is welcome to join.

    During the free time there is plenty of lovely walks around. If you love animals, our neighbour has lots of horses and we have 7cats and 1 dog, 2 rabbits and 2 pigs.
    During the good weather we go swimming to the lake every day. And for new comers there is always a planned trip to Cliffs of Moher as it's only about 1.5h far from the farm.
