  • Description


    I'm currently transitioning a 110 acre dairy farm into woodland and community gardening/ b&b/cider production and rare native breeds of cattle and goats.
    I've been increasing biodiversity and embracing organic and permaculture/bio dynamic approaches and techniques. The farm is in an area called Knocknagore meaning The hill of the goats and the area is steeped in history. It lies on the coast overlooking the village of Crosshaven in County Cork.
    I'm looking for enthusiastic visionaries with skillsets. Grounded yet fluid with a sense of humour and a willingness to give to the greater good. We emphasize the fair ethical treatment of all the animals and their care is priority. We use homeopathy and traditional farming techniques whenever possible.
    Accommodation includes a vintage bespoke silver streak, mobile home and motorhome located by a fairy fort...seasonal fruits and vegetables available
