I live on a 3 acre smallholding in the middle of the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland. I have 2 pet pigs, 2 donkeys and 17 chickens, as well as 2 dogs and a cat. I grow a wide variety of vegetables in raised beds and also in the polytunnel. Although there is no mobile phone coverage here I do have internet. I love to cook. Although it is very remote here, it does have its bonuses, e.g., dark skies so stargazing is amazing! Lots of wildlife to see as well. I

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
I think my home should be treated more like a retreat from the rat race. If they would like, I can teach them how to grow their own food, how to cook, how to care for animals.
I'm looking for companionship as well as general help around my little smallholding, e.g., feeding the animals, sowing seeds, planting, harvesting vegetables etc. Nothing too strenuous.
Two single beds in private room in my house. All other facilities, i.e., cooking, washing, etc., shared. I am happy to cook for the guests or for them to cook for themselves using the produce I grow if they wish.
What else ...
It's very remote, so no public transport, but I can collect guests from the train station. There are a lot of walking trails. I'm very easy going but my only stipulation would be NO SMOKING.
