A little bit about the estate.
We are a 200 acre organic deer farm situated in County Limerick. The deer are self sufficient.We also keep some geese and hens.
We have planted 40 acres of forestry which need to be pruned and thinned. We use the wood to stock our wood burning boiler which heats the self catering business( Springfield Castle) that we also run.
We also planted 2 acres of hazel trees which were inoculated with truffle mushrooms.
There is farm and forestry maintenance to be done as well as estate maintenance such as gardening including mowing, weeding, watering etc. There will be indoor work during bad weather such as painting, cleaning, wood splitting etc.
