We are a family with three children, aged 8, 12 and 16, originally from Germany and America. We recently moved onto a beautifully situated 46 acres site where we are in the process to establish our hobby farm, garden and a respite care house for people with special needs. We have 14 alpacas, 3 goats with kids, 40 sheep with lambs, 9 chickens and 4 cats.
We are gradually introducing bio-dynamic methods to the garden and farm. We are in the process of building a new house and are hoping to landscape a disused quarry.

During your stay you will get to know a few people who live and think slightly different than main stream society. There is a rich cultural life in the area, particular to mention is the Festival of traditional Irish music from the 8th to the 13th of August.
You will gain experiences growing organic vegetables, taking care of sheep, goats and alpacas, some basic building work and the general joys and sorrows and the occasional stress of setting up a small holding, building a house and taking care of a family.
We expect workawayers to help a little bit with household tasks additional to the normal helping hours.
Ce projet peut impliquer des enfants. Pour en savoir plus, consultez nos directives et conseils ici.
We would like help with gardening, fencing, building a shed, animal care and a little help in the house we are building.
You will be sleeping in a large caravan, which has running water, a small bathroom, electricity and a gas oven. You can join the (vegetarian) meals with the family or provide your own food and cook for yourself. The caravan is very quiet, you only will hear the birds and occasionally the sheep or the neighbours cows.
We are situated 5 min drive from a small town from where there is a bus to bigger towns. You can have the use of a bicycle. 10 min away is a large lake with possibilities for watersports and fishing. We have a canoe and a kayak. The dramatic west coast (Cliffs of Moher) is 1 1/2 hours away and a bit closer is a fascinating limestone landscape with ancient monuments and an abundance of wild flowers.
Helping time is flexible and there is no problem if you want to take a few days off to explore the wider surroundings. You are also welcome to come along on family outings.
