    I am a sheep and tillage farmer. My farm is 1 kilometre from the lovely seaside village of Kilmuckridge in the southeast of Ireland. Kilmuckridge has several pubs, a cafe, indoor soccer, golf course, hotel and bus service on the weekend to local towns and from there to major cities. Bicycles and occasional lifts provided.

    Primarily a sheep farm so the work mainly consists of help at lambing time. This consists of feeding and bedding ewes in their lambing pens and afterwards in the main shed and later taking care of them in the fields. It is worth noting that at lambing it is normal to witness some blood during the birth of the lambs. Some tractor driving and checking on livestock in the fields. General maintenance of farm yard and sheds. Fencing of paddocks and fields, painting fences, doors and sheds.

    I would like you to work with me for 5 hours during the day.
    The five hours would be taken between 8:00 and 18:00. It is a working farm so the work changes with
    the seasons. We might want three hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon or evening. The time would be agreed with the volunteer of course.
    I would like you to help me for 5 days and have 2 days off.

    I can only take volunteers for periods of 3 week or more.

    Accommodation is in the farmhouse where I live by myself. I have a room with 2 single beds for the volunteers, with a shared bathroom. You might have to share the room with another volunteer if the occasion arose. All food is provided but I would hope that you would share the cooking for the household consisting of me and a fellow volunteer. All towel and linens are provided as well. There is also wifi!

    No smoking indoors or outdoors.
