    Silence is welcome near the houses and respect for the work of the farmers is much appreciated. In the fields, remember to close the gates and do not try to make friends with the cows, even if they look friendly, they can sometimes be stressed and can be aggressive. If a bull is in a field, for your own safety, avoid crossing it and stay as close to the pen as possible.


    Free of charge.
