Holidays on the big farm...

9th August 2015

We are on coming back to our home so it means we finished our one week holidays at the Baltic Sea. We were lucky again because weather was fantastic 36 C in the shadow. From Gdansk to our place is about 800 km so we have  decided to stay for two days at my cousin farm.The farm is very big  and located about 150 km from Gdansk. On the farm is a lot of work to do because it is a harvest time.
My cousin Theresa is 61 and she runs the farm with her daughter and her husband.  My cousin's daughter gas two children - Hannah 7 and Daria 17. They have 100 hectares of area so it means they are rather rich..
