Striving to find a better way of doing things has been the mantra of brothers Jack and Nick Cotter for success on the family farm in Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick.

"There is an experiment going on every day here," jokes Nick who, along with his older brother has developed a host of additional income streams to supplement their hill sheep farm.
