Welcome to Mrs.C's, and thank you very much for visiting. The first blog will be about who I am and what I stand for, I hope that's ok.
I have been living in Ireland for the past 12 years, in the beautiful County Clare. I came here from Austria to stay for a year, discover new things, learn what it feels like to live in a different country, play a bit of music....... but then I met Mr. C, and that was that.
We are trying to live as sustainably as possible with a low footprint. We grow vegetables for our own supply and medicinal herbs for sale, all organically and mindful of the Earth. Our bees are kept in a way that doesn't interfere with their natural life - all my beekeeping is bee-centred, which more often than not means that I won't have a lot of honey to sell, but so be it. The bees feed on the plants that grow on the farm all year, not on sugar. The wax that needs to be replaced is then used for candle-making, and the results can be seen on this website. I am using no plastic for packaging, only reusable, bio-degradable or at least recyclable materials.
All of this is work in progress, so please bear with me. It would be lovely if you could drop me a line to let me know what you think - just email firstname.lastname@example.org
