We run a 2 acre smallholding in beautiful West Cork near the sea, mountains and woods. We breed Turkeys (for own use only). We grow potatoes and lots of vegetables. We have a glasshouse and a polytunnel. We would love to have some help with all the above eg. feeding of poultry, collecting eggs, planting, weeding and watering veg, general maintenance etc. Lots of woodcutting. Occasional help in the house is appreciated also. It rains a LOT in Ireland and ground can be extremely muddy so sturdy waterproof boots and raingear are essential. As Nobby works away from home during the day you would need to be able to work independently. Helpers are part of the family, have their own bedroom in our house and eat with us (please note that as we raise our poultry for the table we do not cater for vegetarians). There are usually other helpexers / woofers / au pairs in the local area so there is the opportunity to meet others socially. We have been WWOOF hosts for the past couple of years and have met many wonderful people. We have 2 children who enjoy rugby, swimming and scouting, 2 dogs and 2 cats. Friendly, laid back family. We only take one helper at a time. Over 21 please.
