  • Description


    We are a busy family of two teenage kids, two older kids who are in college, two adults, two dogs and a cat on a small 6 hectare holding outside Wexford town. We have a small veg patch, a polytunnel, a young woodland, apple trees, some out buildings, our small cottage, two small chalets and a camping space that we use as accommodation. We have had visitors from all over the world stay with us for over 15 years now and love meeting new people. We are always building, growing, weeding, painting or starting something new and exciting. We eat everything, vegan one night, steak the next, and cannot provide for special diets. We provide a warm cabin, healthy food and plenty of company in exchange for help around the house and land.

People who come to help and stay with us will learn about close to nature forestry management and get to be part of a busy family who have interests that vary from music to breakdancing to wild swimming!
