Weekly Farm Update and Summer Menu Suggestions

Weekly Farm Update and Summer Menu Suggestions

Like all farmers in Ireland, it is all systems go as soon as the sun comes out. So we've been able to prepare the ground for a new fodder beat crop, which hopefully we can sew this week. Also, the grass has started to grow like mad, which is fantastic because we were getting a bit worried.

You can keep an eye on our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for video updates this week.
