The Old Rectory Bed and Breakfast Ireland

The Old Rectory Country Home Leitrim

Could you get a better day for rowing up!!

Although we do not have a very big farm it is still very much a part of our life here at The Old Rectory Country Home Leitrim and yesterday was one of the biggest farming days of the year, making the silage.  So much of how the rest of the year on the farm will go is hinged on a few dry days at the beginning of the Summer.  And this year the weather is making farm life that bit easier, the good dry warm Spring put a kick start into grass growth and being able to get the fertilizer out early and now with the dry week everyone should be able to breathe a sigh of relieve that the silage is made for another year.
