    Beschreibung

    We are a couple with 3 children, Lucie 7, Joshua 4 and Mia 2. We live in the countryside with our 2 dogs, Peaches the St Bernard and Lady our Springer. I am French, from Brittany and speak French only with the kids. Phil is Irish and we speak English when all together. Lucie is bilingual. Josh understand both and speak a bit of both.
    We are apple growers, we grow 50 acres quite intensively, on a rented farm 15min from home. We also have 70 colonies of bees...
    We live on a little farm we bought recently it is only 4-5 acres and we are after planting a few apples trees, plum trees, pears, raspberries, a small vineyard (1200vines)... we would like to farm that place in an ecofriendly way. We are looking into the permaculture, biodynamic concepts... Any ideas or experience in that matter are always welcome. We have a French workaway staying with us until the 29th of August.

    We are now looking for somebody able to take on a renovation job. That person would have to be available ASAP. We are gonna be renovating 2 old mobile homes at the top of our site. We are thinking to insulate them on the outside and then cover them up altogether so it will look like a little log cabin rather than these 2 horrible things! We can accommodate couples. But we need people with skills, we will be helping but we will won't have time to be around all the time. People interested need to be able to show initiative and to have a level of competences in renovation jobs. It would be a paid job for a qualified person.

    Regarding the months of August (mid-August) , September to mid November we are looking for a mature person to look after the kids and the house. This time of the year is our busiest time because we are picking our crop of apples. I will be off on the main farm on picking days.
    That person would ideally have a driving license to drive the kids to school and to their activities.


    Do not hesitate to contact us !

    We really want you to enjoy your stay in Ireland. We are very flexible to accommodate any trip you want to plan. There is no shortage of activities in the garden. There is plenty to exchange regarding horticulture and beekeeping.

    Anyone interested in joining our gang would be involve in the development of the home farm/garden/bees/wax... as well as looking after the kids and some dinners. We would like someone interested in both aspects of our venture: the kids and the farm. It all comes together... the farm helps us to keep them busy ;) ... Very little use of the TV down our place!
