We are an Irish family of five, Eoin, Olivia and three great girls Anna (9) Kate(6) and Sage (4) We run a small mixed farm just outside the historic town of Kells in the heart of the Boyne Valley. Our primary business is rearing Free Range Bronze Turkeys and Geese for Christmas. We also operate an educational mobile farm visiting food festivals, events and schools so we have a great mixture of animals for that including rear breed pigs and sheep, ducks, hens (all our own eggs in the morning!) and Matilda our milking goat!
We also have horses and there is opportunity to ride out and exercise horses for those with experience.

We need general help on the farm, feeding animals, herding them in and out (as everything is free range), keeping sheds clean and tidy and looking after horses too. We need some support with the kids too as it is a busy house, especially in the evenings! We would love a couple or two friends able to stay one month or longer. Separate accommodation available in a wooden cabin, with stove, kitchen and two rooms, we also love cooking and are almost self sufficient from the farm, we are passionate about the journey that food takes and we welcome visiting groups to the farm for visits. We are less than an hour from Dublin city so plenty of opportunity to explore the region and the beautiful Boyne Valley
