Share the 'Good Life' on an Irish Farm
What does 'Free Range' mean to you? To most people, it creates an image of happy hens, pecking around a sunny yard. To us it means, in the words of my Mother; "letting people do as they like."
She has stayed on our farms many times, and is always struck by the total lack of respect that many of our animals have for boundaries, fences, and their neighbors'' (and owners) right to space or privacy.
This comes from the fact that we treat all our animals as members of the family, and as such they all have a 'say' in what goes on. Some say more than others
Read about the trials of sharing a bathroom with a herd of goats and the small triumphs of well not always having to share the kitchen too.
This is the sometimes hilarious story of just a few of the characters that we have met over the years, especially the non-humans.
There were some who took advantage of our 'greenness' in playful ways, and some who were just plain wicked, and all of whom have greatly enriched our lives or taught us valuable lessons.
