  • Description

    Description

    We are a nature loving Irish couple living in the idyllic countryside of West Cork on a five-acre smallholding. We grow fruit and vegetables following organic principles in three polytunnels and also outdoors. We also keep hens, ducks, pigs and turkeys for our own eggs and meat. We have a market stall at Bantry country market selling plants, fruit, vegetables, eggs and jam.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There is lots to learn on our smallholding including how to grow fruit and vegetables following organic principles. From seed to harvest to market there's something happening at all times of the year!

    Help

    We are looking for help mostly in the garden, assisting with preparing the ground, planting seeds and seedlings, weeding and harvesting along with general garden maintenance.
    This would suit a single traveller or couple interested in helping for 25 hours for 1 week. We require some flexibility in working hours depending on the weather but can also be flexible in return regarding hours and days worked.
    No smoking inside the house.
