German Girl seeks four month farm internship

An 18 year old German girl is seeking a 4 month farm internship in Ireland.  She has completed her Abitur (Leaving Certificate) exams and will commence a formal German Farm Apprenticeship programme in September 2019.  In the mean time she would like to work as an intern in Ireland preferably in dairy, sheep farming, cheese production, tillage or vegetable growing, from September next to Christmas 2018.  She holds a car driving licence and good English language skills.

Food and accommodation would be required and ideally work on a family farm with similar aged family members would be suitable.

Interested farmers should contact amcdonnell@macra.ie with details of their offers including duties and working hours, location and general information.  Payment, while gratefully received, is not a necessity.
