|Brookvale Farm, the house.|
One of the highlights of my recent trip to Northern Ireland for the wedding of Thomas and Rebecca was visiting with Thomas' parents Ann and David at their lovely Brookvale Farm. The main crop of the Farm is the orchards of Armagh Bramley apples.

The beautiful house has been in the family for several generations. Soon Thomas' older brother Stewart will be taking over the farm.

Visiting with the Glass family at their farm was delightful. .
