  • Description


    We are organic farmers with around 60 cattle. At present we are finishing a stone barn and plan to build an extension to our house. Two of our sons have recently bought old homes that they are refurbishing, and we are looking for workawayers to spend most of time helping them with that. Living in our house is myself and my husband, two grown up sons, a super cute dog and two cats. We have a veggie garden also. Across the road is a large forest with beautiful walks and stunning scenery. We live 14 miles from Cavan and Monaghan towns. The closest town is two miles away and we can provide you with bikes.
    We are looking for people to help with the building, renovating of of our two sons' properties, and maybe in the farm. There are various other jobs available also, depending on your abilities.
    Everybody in the house has a keen interest in Music and attend regular music sessions. Next door is an Outdoor Recreation centre where some of the boys work and they have a sailing boats ,they take regular trips camping, climbing, canoeing, kakaying, etc.

    If you would like to help us out for minimum one month give us a shout and we will email more detailed information.
