  • Description


    ***Please note I have accepted someone for July. But I might take someone in June and August.
    I can't cater for couples or different diets.
    Help needed is mostly gardening, painting and taking care of animals.***

    A smallholding of 4.25 (producing food for my own use) acres in southwest Wexford close to beautiful beaches and other places of interest. I have pigs, poultry, goats and sheep. I grow a lot of my own vegetables and I am currently renovating old farm buildings. There are also dogs and cats here.

    Welcoming someone to take care of animals and some outdoor/indoor maintenance jobs.

    Sorry but I can no longer cater for vegetarian/vegan or any allergies.
