    Our farm is located in the beautiful south west of Ireland along the Wild Atlantic Way.
    We are in close proximity to several blue flag approved beaches and the world famous Ballybunnion Golf Course.
    I (Johnny) along with my parents Ann and Gerard have a farm
    On the farm, we milk 150 pedigree Holstein Cows with 3 DeLaval VMS Robotic milking machines
    Our cows enjoy free access to pasture and the freedom to come and go from milking and grazing almost 300days a year all by themselves.
    Our female calves are kept on the farm and raised to become part of the milking herd as they grow older.

    Daily duties involve looking after the young animals, cleaning, feeding and bedding with fresh straw every day and ensuring that they are healthy and stress free.
    Cleaning the Robots and measuring the grass growth rates are other important tasks on the farm.
    We endeavour to keep all our animals in the best health and in a stress free environment at all times to ensure happy, healthy and content livestock.

    Accommodation available is a 2 Bedroom house with separate bathroom and shower.
    High speed 20mb internet and satellite tv are also provided.
    All meals included, but your welcome to prepare your own if you so wish.
    We are looking for someone to help out on the farm and also some light household or garden chores.
    Good computer literacy is also a big help as well as being used to working with large animals.
    We enjoy our time off from the farm also and you are most welcome to socialise with us or enjoy the many great activities Kerry has to offer, such as mountain climbing, sea fishing, surfing, horse riding and exploring the great scenery locally.
    Airport, bus or train pickup can be organised.
    We look forward to seeing you this year.
