Hello Fellow Travelers

This farm is nestled into the Irish countryside in the beautiful county of Kilkenny. Our little farmstead with all it's rustic limestone/slate roofed buildings is set along the banks of the river Nore and is roughly 10km from the historic and medieval city of Kilkenny. If you know anything about Kilkenny it is that the people here are well acquainted with the wandering traveler and are proud to say they come from this alternative and creative county in Ireland.

It is in the spirit of this way of thinking that we are in the process of developing this place to use an alternative mindset to try create a sustainable, self sufficient living project with organic and permaculture practices at the heart of our endeavors. This is already a huge learning experience for us and any of that learning we are certainly happy to share.

Don't be fooled by our playful name. It represents an easy going outlook on life that is highly influenced by nature and we love that our name represents fun, laughter and an appreciation for the little things.....like a silly name. Also we might be a little bit mad!!!

We are a startup initiative and already we have made huge headway restoring this little farm down the country lane over the last year. However, we need help, expertise, enthusiasm and probably a little bit more madness to really start exposing the potential of this little property. We are driven, have years on the road experience across many continents with strong careers forged in Horticulture, Tree Surgery, Conservation, Tourism and Photography. We have worked and traveled ourselves and now see it as the perfect way to give life to this little dream while connecting good people, sharing stories and eating lots of yummy healthy food with fellow travellers.

Our first rag tag bunch of animals are here, the first veggie, restoration, wildlife and conservation projects are in development. We are in full swing and need your help with lots of exciting times ahead! Maybe you will be here for one of our community farm days??!!

We have bikes, nearby forests and kayak for exploring during your time off. Your accommodation is within the main Farm house where we all live, work and eat together. No TV, (occasional netflix day!!) only music and conversation is the norm here. You are required to work 5 hours per day during working days.

Come be part of something in a place you never expected!!!
