We are small FREE RANGE PIG and CATTLE farmers just outside the village of Kilfenora, county Clare, in the West of Ireland. We sell our own free range pork meat directly from the farm. We also have a few hens and ducks, a couple of dogs, 2 donkeys and a cat. We have a good size poly tunnel where we grow a lot of organic vegetables and fruits. We are looking for someone who would like to come and experience a bit of traditional farming in a lovely part of the country. We are part of an Ecotourism group in the Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark and have some interesting projects in the pipeline, so we need people with different type of skills. We also offer 'Glamping' accommodation on the farm in a converted old horsetruck for paying guests.
In the springtime, we are going to spend a lot of time preparing the garden, so people who are interested in gardening and clearing would be suitable.

Help with Eco Projects
Help around the house
Discover the Burren and the Wild Atlantic Way. You will learn about the Irish culture, small traditional farming and gardening plus get an immersion in the English, Irish or Swedish languages.
During the summer time we have guests in our Glamping accommodation, so we need some help with cleaning and laundry. In the spring time we are usually busy with the garden and the polytunnel and general maintenance. Sometimes we also might need a little bit of help with feeding the animals
A big private room with your own bathroom in the house
Kilfenora is in the Burren and home to ceili music, so if you are interested in set dancing - it's a good place to be. Set dancing classes are given once a week followed by a ceili. If you play traditional music there is loads of sessions around the area or if you prefer to just listen - it's up to you! The Burren area is very scenic and has a lot of interesting archaeological sites to discover. We have 2 bikes on the farm that you can use to get around. We like eating well and if you are a vegetarian we can cater for that too.
