  • Description


    We have a small farm in beautiful countryside four miles from Sligo town. Guy lectures in the local college and I am an artist working from home. We also run the local farmers market, you are not asked to help with this. We have cattle sheep dogs cats ponies and poultry and live a busy but fulfilling life. At the moment we could do with some help in the house garden and tunnel. Also would like some help with making steps, dry stonewalling and fencing on the farm.
