  • Description

    Description

    We are family of 3 running small ranch in a very quiet village in co. Wexford, Ireland

    We have 27 animals like dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, peacock, rook and horses.

    We have 2.5 acre place in picturesque area to live.

    This is our dream house where we moved from Dublin in 2021.

    We are both Architects (working full time from home) not real farmers but we know a lot about countryside living and we love our place.

    This is a private property.

    -------------------------------------------------

    Rules for workaways are simple, its not holidays, both sides must be happy, its a win-win agreement, you give us good help - we give you accomodation and food.

    For people who has potential, who are really helpful and really wants to learn new things we have lots of love, patience and on top of that extras, like horse riding, travels, treats, unlimited internet etc.

    For those who have no intention to integrate, those who we have to push or who are lazy, only waiting to skip the work - we say good bye after one week of probation.

    Comunicative English is essential, that's why we wish to invite you for live chat before we accept your application.

    We are not childminders, our home its unfortunately not a shelter or waiting room for those who wait for visas or those who must do 3 month college exchange in English speaking country but they never was interested to live in countryside - either.

    ---------------------------------------------------

    We are looking for naturally born happy, optimistic and honest people, who can give us a hand 😁

    We are looking for solid people who want to learn, help, who appreciate live human company rather than their mobile phone.

    Our work is mostly spontaneous, dictated by mood and weather (except feeding animals - this needs to be done everyday including days off)

    If you love adventure, spontaneous work in the garden or “let’s go to Dublin today” this is good place for you.

    We do not working on the farm from 6am, but yes, we are going to sleep late night if there is something important to do eg bone fire, netflix, board games or interesting chat with a bottle of wine till the dusk.

    -----------------------------------------------------

    If you are princess or posh-like person, thinking to bring brand new clothes & shoes, especially white (one of our dog loves to jump and will give you wet kisses and mucky stamps of her paws straight away u cross our gate) … unfortunately this might not work for you nor us.
