    Hello there,

    The time has come for our little farming community to come to an end, a new chapter full of adventures is lurking on the horizon! however before this new chapter begins, we must put the last one to bed! I will need help for the next 3 months getting the farm I have rented for the last 5 years ready for our departure.

    I will only grow vegetables on a small scale this year, I will mostly need help with timber milling, firewood processing, some furniture making and general cleaning up and clearing out!
    In return I would be very happy to show you some of Irelands finest spots and introduce you to our culture.

    I like to, surf, stand up paddle board, mountain bike and go camping so you would be welcome to join me. I am also developing my meditation practice and currently trying to incorporate 1hr of meditation into each day.

    your accommodation would be in my house, I have 3 Irish friends living here also!


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The farm is nestled into the Irish countryside in the beautiful county of Kilkenny. The farm is set along the banks of the river Nore and is roughly 10km from the historic and medieval city of Kilkenny.

    We would like to develop the farm using an alternative mindset to try create a sustainable, living project with organic and permaculture practices at the heart of our endeavours. This has already been a huge learning experience for everyone who has been involved, any of that learning we are happy to share.

    We have already made huge headway restoring the farm over the last four years. We have begun construction and planning of various eco buildings, we are restoring all our sheds to a working state, while taking on a vegetable growing project. All our projects to date begin by up-cycling and re-purposing things that we find or have bartered for. We are also big believers in planting trees and promoting biodiversity.

    We need help, expertise and enthusiasm to drive this project on further and to continue developing our learning experience. are a driven, hard working, with strong careers forged in horticulture and tree surgery . We have worked and traveled ourselves and now see it as the perfect way to give life to our dream while connecting with good people and sharing stories.
    We have bikes, nearby forests and kayaks for exploring during your time off. Your accommodation is in a self contained caravan in the yard but not too far away from the house. Shower facilities are in the main house (at the moment) with the hope to complete the construction of a eco outdoor shower very soon (and with your help) .

    We are looking for someone long term or short term that will get the run of the place and not need much guidance after they have learnt the ropes.

    There will be loads of scope for self directed projects and we are open to new ideas.

    At the moment we are looking for help in setting up -


    - A compost heated shower
    - Irrigation systems
    - Chopping and bagging firewood
    - Milling timber and helping with creative timber projects
    - Maintaining the Garden and farmyard
    - Caring for chickens, cat and dog
    - Household help

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks you,

    Dan & Millie

    The tasks are varied. But general day to day chores include, tending to chickens, glass houses and walled garden, general maintenance around the farm and dog walking. Larger projects are always being developed and this will mainly be taking place in the evening time or at the weekends.
