I run a small working sheep farm in South Mayo, that is situated close to Cong in Co. Mayo. I am looking for some help over the summer to do some general maintenance like painting, whitewashing and weeding. Opportunities to work with the sheep flock include dosing, weighing and herding but that isn't every day.

Additionally, I have an old orchard that could do with some TLC along with a vegetable garden that could be revamped.

I can also offer the opportunity to build stone walls using traditional methods going back hundreds of years.

Whats on offer: accommodation in your own room with a bathroom next door.
There is wifi available.
Good wholesome meals.
There are a number of archaeological features such as cromleachs, souterrains and walled stone forts
Attractions in the local area include forest walks in Cong, fishing in Lough Mask and Corrib, traditional irish music in local pubs and unspoiled countryside.

Ideally I am looking for helpers over 25 who are interested in spending a week or more working on the farm, 5 days a week for 5 hours a day weather permitting. Other arrangements can be agreed if required.
