news about the community

Hello again!

It's been a while since the last blog entry so loads of different things happened.
The most obvious changes you can definetely see on the farm land. The whole area around the barn changed, everything is getting tidu and inviting there. We also have three pigs that are on the big field next to Brigheen. We got them in February and since then they grew like mad. Not long and we can enjoy ham, sausages,.... all kind of nice stuff! ;)
But that's not all. Yesterday Kalle drove together with Colm and Arthur down to Clare to pick up our 2 little goats. They are only 6 weeks old and still a bit skinny, but soon we will have our own goatsmilk (I'm very curious who is supposed to drink that O:-) )
We got a new beautiful chicken house on the oppsite side of the polytunnels. It's maybe best to describe by quoting Mischa: "It puts a smile on people's face." And that's really true! It's made in some kind of a Norwegian style - Sean, Michael and Kiron did a very good job - and everybody needs to comment it in some way. The apple orchard is surrounded by a fence as well to make home for a few geese. Let's see how many we will have in the end, they are still in our incubation room. At least they got a very caring mum with Arthur.
Last but not least the coffeeshop got a brandnew kitchen, the health inspector won't be able to find the smallest dirty spot. I personally must say it's brilliant. It's the first time I can actually do the dishes there without ruining my back ;)
By the way I'm Martin, a co-worker from Germany who arrived last July. Now I need to hurry to our weekly community meeting but for the next entry I might have some nice pictures to show you.

Best wishes
