Help

Hi everybody! We are Katrin (34) and Thomas (44) and together with our two sons (11 & 2), our daughter (6) and our dog Luna, we are living on a dairy farm in county Wexford, 2 km from a lovely village and only 6 km from the Irish Sea.

As a family we love the outdoors, gardening, anything related with farming, reading, playing board games, good food, baking and cooking.

At the moment we are busy with getting everything ready for the calving season in early February. I (Katrin) am German and teach in the evenings and on Saturdays.
Further we are really eager to set up a no-dig vegetable garden and maybe to start keeping a few chickens.

We would love some help from now until early April with things like calf feeding and milking, help around the house and minding the kids when I'm teaching. If you have any experiences with no-dig gardening or chicken keeping we would be very happy if you could share your knowledge with us!
In exchange for your help we offer you to become part of our family with full inclusion in our family life and we could also teach you some German if you are interested.
The kids are bilingual, but the main language spoken is English.

So if you consider yourself as an outgoing, responsible, fun and independent person and team player we would be thrilled to hear from you!
