Everything your child needs to know about Irish farms!



Did you know that there are almost 2,000,000 pigs in Ireland?



And that sheep have rectangular pupils, which means they have amazing vision?



Would you believe only 10 per cent of the milk produced in Ireland is consumed here?



And that hens are pregnant for 21 days, but a horse can be pregnant for up to 345 days?



How about the fact that despite our love of spuds, grass is Ireland's top crop, covering 3,700,000 hectares, while potatoes cover only 9,000 hectares?



From the farmer's day to the changing of the seasons, from animals and crops to machinery and technology, and from ancient times to the modern day, The Great Irish Farm Book will take you on a fascinating journey through life on an Irish farm.
