Have you ever thought about keeping a few hens? Or maybe trying your hand at butchery? The Ballymaloe Cookery School is running a one-day course on how to keep a few hens in the garden on 5 March and also offers a range of butchery courses, from lamb butchery to making your own sausages.
If you want to take things one step further than just keeping a few hens or making your own charcuterie, the Belvedere Self-Sufficiency Show, based on John Seymour’s Complete Guide to Self-Sufficiency, the bible for all smallholders, is taking place on 16-17 April in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath.
