We are small FREE RANGE PIG and CATTLE farmers just outside the village of Kilfenora, county Clare, in the West of Ireland. We sell our own free range pork meat directly from the farm. We also have a few hens and ducks, a couple of dogs, 2 donkeys and a cat. We have a good size poly tunnel where we grow a lot of organic vegetables and fruits. We are looking someone who would like to come and experience a bit of traditional farming in a lovely part of the country. We are part of an Ecotourism group in the Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark and have some interesting projects in the pipeline, so we need people with different type of skills. We also offer 'Glamping' accommodation on the farm in a converted old horsetruck for accommodation and meals for paying guests. See www.burrenglamping.com
In the springtime, we spend a lot of time preparing the garden and in the autumn we are harvesting a lot of our fruit and vegetables and go out foraging for wild berries, nuts etc so people who are interested in gardening, preserving and clearing work would be suitable.
Kilfenora is in the Burren and home to ceili music, so if you are interested in set dancing - it's a good place to be. Set dancing classes are given once a week followed by a ceili. If you play traditional music there is loads of sessions around the area or if you prefer to just listen - it's up to you! The Burren area is very scenic and has a lot of interesting archaeological sites to discover. We have 2 bikes on the farm that you can use to get around. We like eating well and if you are a vegetarian we can cater for that too.
