  • Description


    December/Jan/Feb volunteer applications taken now
    Can you jump feet first into family life? Can you 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 5 and Freya 4 and some house duties
    We would love would to have somebody help to get the kids ready for school, help with homework, maybe some cooking
    Our house is a whirlwind of kids, pets,love & farming.
    I need help to free up some time to go work on the farm and admin work. But with your help we can all farm together :)
    Sometimes I work off farm and need a babysitter for the children

    Some times you will be picking up toys and others jumping on the trampoline or on the farm,the kids love outdoors

    We live close to Dunmore Co. Galway. 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
