About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

We have a new snail farm in the sunny South East of Ireland close to the curracloe beach (10 km) (this is where saving private ryan was filmed) and in Wexford we recieve the most days of sunshine than any of the other counties. We have a 3 ha farm with a few lambs (Barney, Desiree, Emilly, Bubbles, Wilma and Betty), 2 cats (snowy and Momma) and 1.5 million snails and im not going put down their names. Martin and I we're a gay married couple in a 5 bed house willing to share our house in return for some help on the farm. Martin works Dublin and commute everyday and Im the the daddy looking after all the animals.
I need a hand with repair work to the field for the snails i.e tying cable ties to the bird netting, picking up snails that escaped over the electric fence, fixing broken fences, growing vegetables, and a hand with cleaning the house.

Martin and I (Stephan the blonde one) is a married gay couple with our 3rd anniversary coming up. I am South African born and Martin is Czech. We like it on the farm and the slower pace of life even though Martin commutes to Dublin daily.
