Welcome to Hushabye Farm, my name is Elizabeth and I live here with my husband Paul, our 4 children aged from 6 down to 18 months. We also share this little piece of heaven with 2 dogs, 2 very naughty goats, 1 pot bellied pig, 12 ducks, 2 turkeys, 2 geese, 40 hens, 2 doves and most importantly 15 Alpacas.
Hushabye Farm began 6 yrs ago when we bought a few acres at the foothills of the Slieve Blooms on which to build our dream home, the Alpacas came about when I left my husband wander freely for 30 mins at the Tullamore Show 3 yrs ago and he returned having bought 3 Alpacas and so our few acres has grown into a small holding of about 15 acres. Our Alpaca herd along with our family has grown exponentially over the last few years and we hope to welcome 5 new cria ( baby Alpacas) this coming summer. The Alpacas are my husbands baby to be honest and he is very much the expert so I hope to get him on board to blog about the ups and downs of Alpaca farming.
My main love is cooking and I hope to blog about the food I love to cook and eat.
With full time jobs and a busy hobby farm and 4 young kids our house is busy and slightly crazy but we are carving out our version of ‘ the good life’ and welcome you along to share our journey
