    Farming Mommy needs help!
    Can you jump feet first into family life? Can you see a need fill a need and deal with the unexpected?
    With children and a farm you never know what could happen.

    We are looking for help with the children. Layla is 9yrs old , Cooper is nearly 5 and Freya 3
    As our farm is growing. it would be great to have somebody to get the kids ready for school, help with homework, cook a bit. Entertain them like a big sister or brother. Our house is a whirlwind of kids, pets and love.
    I need help to free up some time to go work on the farm , care of the animals, to do other off farm duties and admin work. But with your help we can all farm together :)
    Sometimes I work off farm and need a babysitter for the children

    We like to have somebody who is willing to help support our family, in all we do. Some times you will have to be bossy just like Mommy
    Make sure to bring your wellie boots because the kids love outdoors and to help on the farm

    We live close to Dunmore Co. Galway . it is very scenic and rural. Buses to and from Galway and Sligo pass through our village every day. With 3 children and a farm full Of young goats
    Life is very busy here but we love to welcome new volunteers into our family

    This is a goat farm that produces goat meat, and we eat it too. If you don't agree with this you may be happier else where.

    Please write Caprine in the subject.
    Thank you for reading all
