Volunteering and Education

Work, Travel and Learn :) If you want to stay in Ireland, learn about farming and have a lot fun. This is right place for you.

Located in Country Limerick

Come visit our homestead in County Limerick. We have a very small holding, growing vegetables while also raising chickens and pigs for personal consumption. We have Jacob sheep too. We also have bees and if you are interested in learning about bee-keeping we can teach you. 

During your stay we place a strong emphasis on learning and practising English. Comfortable lodgings, with wifi, washing and laundry facilities. No need to bring bed linen as it will be provided. Weekends are always free so you can enjoy visiting local sites or travelling around the country. There are many locally.

Work, Travel and Learn while having fun
Meet new people

Cooking and cleaning responsibilities are shared amongst everyone so that there is more of a communal feel. There will be volunteers from other countries so it is a great experience to meet people from different backgrounds and cultures.

We have many years experience travelling ourselves and understand what it is like to leave family and friends behind to travel to other countries. We will endeavour to ensure that your experience is appreciated and rewarding. You will be doing gardening, planting flowers, sowing seeds, some weeding and watering. 

What help is required 
** We are really looking for people who are really interested in gardening and growing food for themselves. ** 
Come Work With Us

"I have spent one month (March 2020) on Kevins Farm. You have to know: You work with Kevin, but sleep in a house with Paul. Both are amazing people that will let you feel welcome and comfortable. The work on the farm is hard, but fun too. You will learn farming and bond with nature. I was impressed by the work atmosphere that Kevin established and really sad, that I had to leave after one month because of Covid-19. Kevin is such a great guy, so that I stayed in touch with him to create this website. It is a pleasure to work with him, even in Skype-Calls ;) "
