Welcome our country cottage nestled in hills close to the town of Ennis, the Burren and Atlantic ocean. We are a family of 4 living on this smallholding . Kevin and Barbara moved here in 2006 with their children and have added garden, polytunnel, orchard in the last few years.
We have a kitchen garden with all vegetables for the house, a polytunnel where we grow tomatoes, cucumber, sweetcorn, etc and a small orchard which we hope to extend before end of February.

1. Weeding/clearing and preparation for planting on outdoor raised beds (outdoors and in polytunnel)

4. Setting up new beehives
5. Some general tidying on farm
