I am a farmer based in west Wicklow. I have been farming for 20 years in patnership with my father. We run a mixed enterprise which includes, Christmas trees, willow, sheep, tillage and forestry. The christmas trees are entering their very busy time of year and we are gearing up for harvesting them in mid November.

Our farm is very much family run and during your stay you will get to meet all my family and experience their hospitality. The farm has a lot of different enterprises on it and besides Christmas trees we have sheep, some tillage, forestry and a fishing lake. I would hope that I can teach you some of the ways of farming each of these. During the Christmas tree work you will be working with a team of locals which is a fun way of meeting new people, improving your english and experiencing different cultures. I am a keen traveller and am always interested in learning about different countries and cultures so I look forward to meeting new people.

Hi Workaways, we are a family run farm about one hour south of Dublin in Co. Wicklow. I am looking for some paid help for our Christmas tree harvest in mid November for a couple of weeks. The work is physical and has to be done regardless of the weather conditions! There will be a team of workers involved so it will be an opportunity to meet local people and earn some good money to help fund the rest of your trip.
The accommodation is a self catering house in our farmyard. The house is very comfortable and warm.
We live in a beautiful area of Co. Wicklow with a local village one mile from the farm which has a very popular cafe and pub. There are lots of lovely walks in the area with the Wicklow mountains only 20 minutes drive away. Yiou can have the loan of some bicycles and explore the local towns or try some fly fishing on our lake. There are daily buses to Dublin from the local town if you wish to see the city sights.
