Another day, another farm. This time it was Woodville Farm in Sligo as part of ‘Wild Sligo’ run by The Sligo Heritage Office.
Neil Foulkes from the Hedgelaying association of Ireland gave us a talk about the importance of farmland hedgerows and how to maintain them.
A good crowd of people turned up which was great considering the lousy weather. I have to admit I was so cold I didn’t stay around for the whole talk, I couldn’t hear much anyway with the wind blowing.
I really enjoyed looking at the farm though. The building is 250 years old and is full of character. There were some lovely animals to see too and I would love to go back on another day but the farm is now just opened to pre-booked groups. I remember bringing my kids here when they were little.
