  • Description

    Description

    We have a small family farm in a beautiful spot in Liffey. We grow Pinot noir grapes which we do sell under a label and a few fruit trees and a small veggie patch.
    There’s always an odd job to do about the place from work in the garden to some maintenance about the farm.
    Adam spends a fair bit of time in the vineyard so any help with other duties is greatly appreciated.
