    Description

    Hiya,

    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 works on a different farm full time. Anna plays with the horses while studying in school while Sara is working 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.
