*Paid Apple picking available for next year, from mid August 2021 to November 2021*
*Looking for 1 workaway with skills in building and carpentry (to be able to work alone) -
We are a couple with 3 children, Lucie 8, Joshua 5 and Mia 3. 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 (1200 vines)... we would like to farm that place in an ecofriendly way. We are looking into the permaculture, biodynamic concepts...
***For as soon as possible we are now looking for a motivated workaway to tackle a few little building projects around our little farm : Building a chicken coop, extracting honey, upgrading fencing, gardening, more serious building projects if you have the skills. ;)
From mid August 2021 to mid November 2021 we will have seasonal pay jobs available as apple pickers. We need people willing to stay for the full season. It is not an easy job : starts at 8.00-9.00 and finish at 17.00. We work with around 15 people.
We will probably be looking for workawayers again from mid February/March. The jobs will only be gardening around the house, help with the kids and the cooking... These workaway experience are not paid.
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!
We have a mobile home available most of the year near the house. We are happy to share breakfast and lunch/dinner with our workaway.
Regarding trips to discover Ireland, we are in the South East which is getting more and more interesting regarding cycling tracks. We will be happy to bring you to the bus station when required for trips up or down the country!
