  • Description

    Description

    We welcome help on our Organic farm which is 1 mile from the Atlantic Ocean, also on the Wild Atlantic Way we are 20 minutes from the vibrant town of Westport (voted the best town to live 2012). Ideally suited for people with an interest in helping with the land and to improve their English, my husband has 25 years experience in teaching English to foreign students.
    We grow a few vegetables for the kitchen table where we share meals. We manage an area of woodland and have several maintenance jobs around the farm and out buildings.
