  • Descrição


    We are Stephen [English], and Froukje [Dutch].
    We have a cat, Jasper, and a dog Lily. We also have a small flock of chickens and ducks.
    We grow a range of fruit and vegetables, which we used to sell at a weekly market in Limerick. We stopped attending the Limerick Market at the end of 2021, and now have a small box scheme, and attend a local market in Mountshannon, once a month.
    The work is mainly in the garden, but we also have a lot of buildings to maintain. We do our best to vary the work, and so as well as the usual jobs connected with growing vegetables, there is a mix of other work, including food preserving, painting, collecting firewood, cleaning and cooking.
    Please only apply if you are committed to joining us, and have an interest in simple living.
    We do not use chemicals in the garden, and for the most part anywhere else.
    If you are interested in learning about organic gardening, then I am very willing to share my knowledge with you.
    We live in a beautiful area,close to Lough Derg. We have canoes,and bicycles which you can use. There is a Table Tennis table, masses of board games, and hundreds of DVD's. The nearest village [pub,post office] is 5 minutes by bike.
    Froukje plays several instruments,and runs a small choir.
    We welcome people to our home, to be a part of our family, and to take part in all of our family life.
    We enjoy meeting people, and hearing their stories, but enjoy our peace and solitude as well, so it probably suits people who are happy on their own at times.
    Sorry, but we do not cater for Vegans, and we don't take smokers.
