And we’ve got all 12 months.

IT’S THE MOST wonderful time of the year.

The harvest is in, and the Irish Farmers Calendar is out. This year’s crop (sorry) features piglets, a donkey, and a bona fide dancing deer. And the hunky farmers of course.

Sow (sorry again) without further ado…

This is the 7th year of the Irish Farmers Calendar and such is its appeal (its received orders from around the world) that a US book deal has been struck.

A proposed coffee table book due out in 2017 will likely feature a selection of images from the series to date. A percentage of the proceeds will go to the Irish farming charity Bothar.
