Countryside Farm

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe are a family in the rural countryside of Ireland. I live on the family farm with my parents, my grandmother and myself. My mother has been injured and is currently wheel chair bound and can no longer help as much as she'd like. We have a selection of animals such as cows, sheep, chickens, ducks, peacocks, rabbits, ferrets along with a few weird and wonderful animals too. We also have a poly tunnel where we grow our own fruits and vegetables. We also have an outfarm where we keep cows and horses.
