His products are unique, offering a combination of outdoor knowledge, with information on local history and flora and fauna. His walks usually vary from beginner to intermediate level, and are accessible to most people. Joseph hopes to build his business across the whole of Ireland, and to incorporate new products in 2011, such as bush craft and survival hikes.
