The Exchange

I share the work and life of the farm with a variety of different projects. The house is a renovated simple Irish farmhouse,do not expect luxury like a dishwasher,no TV,no Wifi,no neighbours, only sheep farmers,checking their mountain flocks. Very different for apartment /city dwellers it can be lonely!!
