Our gardens & organic farm are situated in a beautiful area on the Cavan Meath border overlooking and around Mullagh Lake.
The gardens are extensive, occasionally open to the public and provide flowers, fruit and vegetables all year round. The farm has been farmed to organic standards since 1996 and we we strive to be as sustainable and self sufficient as possible with the environment and wildlife an important consideration. 60 hectares are in grassland and this supports a suckler herd which is predominantly Aberdeen Angus. There are also farmyard animals including horses and many types of poultry. 20 hectares of the farm are in commercial forestry, predominantly broadleaf, and there are paths throughout with a hide by the lake edge for watching wildlife.
We are looking for help for varied projects in the gardens, farm and forestry throughout the year ( and sometimes inside for house maintenance). We prefer our helpers to stay for a minimum of three weeks and to be mature, self sufficient and resourceful! Working hours are 5-6 hours/day and 5 days a week although there is always flexibility on this.
SPECIFICALLY WE ARE NOW LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WITH CARPENTRY SKILLS AS WE HAVE A NUMBER OF PROJECTS FOR THIS SKILL! Other help is needed in the gardens and forestry in early 2016.
Accomodation is in a comfortable self contained house across a field from the main house with WiFi and a woodburning stove. Helpers are expected to mostly cater for themselves with groceries supplied.
The village of Mullagh is nearby and there are regular buses to Dublin and elsewhere nearby. We provide bikes and a boat and kayaks.
This is a very beautiful place with lots of activity and opportunities! We welcome you to join us here!
