  • Description

    Description

    Our smallholding is located between the mountains and the sea near the villages of Cliffoney, Kinlough and Mullaghmore, Co Sligo. We have a glasshouse, a polytunnel and outdoor vegetable beds in which we grow our own food. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children with 2 friendly lab-cross dogs, 4 outdoor cats, hens and ducks. We enjoy reading, playing games, Lego, baking, walking, going to the beach, meditating, playing guitar, watching movies and entertaining. We eat a mainly vegetarian diet and are committed to the principles of sustainability and permaculture. We have wwoofed as a family, and have enjoyed sharing our home and daily tasks with others over the past two years. Ideally we are looking to host people who are happy to work independently and have skills and interests in the areas of permaculture, growing food organically, cooking and carpentry. Accommodation is in a spare room in our house. Jobs on the farm include tending to vegetables, clearing drains, fencing, harvesting and storing food, general maintenance, building, renovations and repairs, cooking and help around the house.
