We live on a dairy farm near Macroom in mid Cork. We milk 200 cows which all calves in spring. We also like building and are restoring an ajoining old house at the moment. We are using lime and sustainable building methods. We also have five border collie dogs on the farm who are great workers and very special friends. On the farm we also have five children between 7 and 14 and we have one full time staff Vicky who lives on the farm and has been here for 13 years and we have one part time man from Poland.
