  • Description


    We are a fun loving family of four; Tom (Irish), Anne (Dutch), Charlie (8) and Lennon (5). We moved to into our dream home 4 years ago; We have been developing our homestead ever since. We own 15 acres of land going down to a lake, looking out on the Maam Turks in gorgeous Connemara. We have a vegetable plot including poly tunnel, chickens, an orchard and bees, dog, cats. Tom works in IT from home, while I run a food trailer business where I sell homemade patisserie. We own a tiny house and that will be your accommodation when you’re volunteering with us.
