Area: British ColumbiaWe are a small family of immigrants from Switzerland, living and working on a diverse certified organic cattle ranch in BC in the beautiful and wild Chilcotin Region. We don't own the ranch, but we share some land of it for our own purpose which is a market garden that is our own little business. In the summer I work more than full time in the garden and my husband helps whenever possible, but he also works for the Ranch since the garden is only part of our income so far. Our older daughter lives in Switzerland and our son attends his last grades of school in town. He comes home on the weekends. The demand for our vegetables is growing and so is the garden every year. We can grow almost all kinds of vegetables, but the climate is somewhat challenging in this area for a garden and that means often extra work to protect the crops from early frost etc., the season can be very short here. We grow about one acre with two small greenhouses and a patch that is on rest with green manure. One third of the acre is potatoes with different varieties. Except for the plowing in spring and fall we do everything by hand like seeding, cultivating, harvesting, washing etc. Though we plan to involve the horse in the future to help with some of the work. We also have a large root cellar where we store mainly root crops for selling during the winter, mainly to a coop in town. Our produce goes to locals, a restaurant and the coop in town. We also process an amount for our own supply for the whole year, like canning and drying and freezing. Besides that we have a dog, a cat, a horse and we raise heritage turkeys.
Area: MunsterWe are Gerard and Claire O'Connor who live on a dairy and vegetable farm, near Killarney and Tralee, Co. Kerry. Gerard works mainly with the cows and Claire is a school nurse, working 3- 4 days a week in Tralee. We live about 15 kms from Killarney and 10 kms from Tralee. Tralee is better for Claire to pick people up from the bus or train station. There is also an airport nearby, called Kerry Airport and served mainly by Ryanair. In Spring, we are busy with seed sowing, transplanting and generally getting our polytunnels ready for planting. In Summer and Autumn, we are usually harvesting vegetables and in late Autumn, we are clearing away debris and cleaning the tunnels etc. Helpers usually stay in a bedroom with 1 double bed and a fold up bed. Usually, they start working about 9 a.m. and on until about 4 p.m. when they can use our bikes and explore the countryside, or walk if they prefer. Helpers work 5 days a week, with the weekends off, when they can explore further around Kerry, especially Killarney or Dingle. Although we are not vegetarian, we do accommodate those who are. We prefer non smokers, but people can smoke outside the house if they wish. We can accommodate up to 2 people at a time, and usually for periods of about 2 weeks.
