We are living in a remote spot in west cork on around 7.5 acres. We have 2 dogs, 2 cats, a few laying chickens, some geese, a few ducks, two goats, 2 milking cows and 5 calves. We also have a 3 year old boy.
We are growing and raising food for ourselves for varied idealogical reasons but mostly because we want to!

Installing irrigation into the polytunnel,
Picking and storing vegetables,
Planting soft fruit

Creating/ Cooking family meals

We are in a remote farming community in west cork (although we are from the UK) We work like slaves and eat like kings! We have both worked in hospitality and food so there is the opportunity to learn a lot about cooking and food if you are interested.
Digging, tending poly tunnel, milking cows, making poultry house, spreading manure, feeding animals, collecting and cutting firewood. cooking, cleaning dog walking and childminding also appreciated.
Room in an old stone house which has just been painted. You will be warm and comfortable but it is scruffy and there is some damp as the house is old. There will be three meals a day, we're flexible with food allergies etc but fussy eaters might struggle!
Beautiful walking in the mountains and lakes of west Cork. We have one car and there is no bus or anything else. We usually leave the house twice week for food and might manage the odd trip to the pub! No telly but it is possible to watch DVDs. We listen to and play music but couldn't be described as hippies! We have a little boy who is 3 years old.
