|Description || |
|We have a 21 acre croft on the east coast of the Isle of Lewis in the Western Isles of Scotland. We grow trees, vegetables and flowers. We keep chickens and have a peacock and peahen. |
We have planted several thousand trees which are developing well. We live on the edge of a tidal sea loch so are able to use sea weed as a natural fertiliser which has proved very successful.
We are interested in green energy and use a heat store system for all our heating and hot water.
Our croft house is about 90 years old and has been added to and adapted by various previous occupants. We have gradually been renovating and insulating our rooms.
We have 2 dogs. We also work off the croft in health work and engineering.
Future development projects include further tree planting and development of outhouses. We have a small wind turbine to erect but have not yet had the time. We have recently completed our first polytunnel (polycrub) to extend the growing season.
|Situated on the outskirts of Lossiemouth, a small coastal town in Moray Scotland. It's twenty minute walk into Lossiemouth and to the beach. Work will be helping with the every day running of the small holding, planting, weeding, harvesting and taking the produce to market. There will be help needed to make preserves from the excess produce, these will then be sold on the market. I also have some building projects. I have a shed to put up and a poly-tunnel. Having worked and managed an Organic farm, up to the year 2010. I have now set up this new project. I currently provide vegetable boxes from June to December and run a market stall through these months ||View |
|We have around thirty acres of organic field scale vegetables supplying pubs /shops /delis /restaurants/CSAs/other box schemes and farmers markets as well as a thriving veg hut on the farm .We aim to demonstrate good organic practice but also are increasingly looking at innovative new growing techniques such as no-dig and lean -farm principles . |
We are a friendly team of growers willing to share our extensive skills ....everybody welcome but wwoofers preferring to stay for longer periods are particularly welcome ....
The farm has many attractions including a cooperatively owned wind and solar farm ..the largest in the uk as well as an organic dairy herd. A mental health charity called Root and Branch offering supported gardening blacksmithing and woodwork as well as a green burial site and wonderful countryside overlooking the White Horse hill at Uffington as well as proximity to Oxford /Bristol /Bath and London for excursions by bus and train .
With swimming in the nearby Thames if things get too hot after a day in the field !
|We have an ancient woodland set in a beautiful valley in North Cornwall just 1.5 miles from the market town of Wadebridge. |
Restoration of this neglected woodland has been ongoing for 12 years now with the creation of an orchard and forest garden for growing soft fruits and vegetables. I run Forest School courses for children and rural skills workshops for all ages. Also hosting event days when the woodland is open to the public.
On site facilities include parking, composting toilets, celtic roundhouse and field kitchen.
The work is varied including forestry work, gardening, natural building and arts and crafts.
Accommodation is provided in a 14ft yurt.
|There are two of us, a retired art teacher/artist and youth worker,with four cats, living in our seaside house (beach 200m) with garden and 2 allotments for 12 years. Have practised 100% organic gardening and permaculture for about 9 years. I have a permaculture design course qualification so can teach basic permaculture. We grow a multitude of veg and fruit and herbs, and keep chickens. We are active and sociable and accustomed to living and working with other people in a variety of situations and would expect WWOOFers to live as family, helping with washing up after meals, etc. Need help to maintain the garden and allotments, with harvesting and conserving the produce, sowing and planting, composting and looking after the chickens. and some woodwork/maintenance. |
We do all our own cooking, can teach baking, all vegetarian cookery, jam making, wine making, dehydration. Aim is for as much self sufficiency as possible. For free time, artists studio to share, beach, countryside, friendship, bikes.
Sorry, only room for one Wwoofer. Someone urgently needed second half April.
|We're (almost) self-sufficient in vegetables, growing for our family for 22 years. Have fruit trees, shrubs, flower borders. We work hard, but are quite easy-going and don't require long hours from WWOOFers - normally 5-6 hours a day with plenty of free time and 1 full day off per week. We like having people here, have become friends with some WWOOFers and keep in touch with them. Volunteers need to be 'self-starters' who don't require too much attention or looking-after. Accommodation: camping in summer or a bedroom in the house. The sea is 20 minutes walk - WWOOFers often go to the beach in the afternoon. We are an artist & web designer with twin home-educated sons, age 23, who are here from time to time. We are trained and experienced in use of natural medicines and therapies. Also need help with carpentry (woodwork), electrical work, chainsawing & 2 stroke engine maintenance. |
NOTE - we have about 4-5 enquiries a day. We are unlikely to agree to have you here unless you have especially useful skills and/or sound interesting!
| This smallholding is in a beautiful secluded spot near a loch (lake) hills and woods in the Highlands of Scotland. |
There is a caravan available or bedrooms in the house. Use of bathroom and kitchen in the house - shared cooking arrangements. Space for car or campervan parking.
Work includes fencing, outbuilding repairs, creation of compost heaps, sawing logs for the fire, painting doors and windowframes, feeding animals, gardening, growing vegetables, weeding etc
Cottage has rayburn stove and an open fire for heating. Washing machine available.
I have a dog and 2 horses.
Great area for birdlife-- near RSPB red kite feeding centre. Wildlife includes roe deer, pine marten, badgers and foxes. Dolphins and seals are not far away in the Moray Firth and of course the Loch Ness Monster in Loch Ness!
Lots of good hikes in the area from a few hours to a few days. Also its a good area for mountainbiking and fishing.
The cottage feels far from civilisation, but getting to Inverness only takes 30 mins.
I look forward to hearing from you.

|We have a beautiful Queen Anne house dating back to 1708, sitting on a half acre plot of garden and vegetable garden. I keep chickens and bees (currently 4 hives), and am keen to do a programme of planting for the bees. |
The vegetable garden has been reasonably well managed but the flower garden needs a lot of work!
I have two independent and comfortable bedrooms available, each with a double bed, sharing one bathroom, independently situated on the top floor of the house.
The house is in the centre of Cricklade and close to shops, pubs and bus stops.
|I run a landless smallholding and Limited company near post-industrial Dewsbury, alongside the Calder and Hebble canal, West Yorkshire. |
I keep bees in a woodland nature reserve and in July/August I move them up to the Peaks to forage for heather.
I would like help with a top bar hive apiary project 15 min bike ride East by the river Calder ; a good place for wild swimming and picnics.
Beekeeping and growing food are organic and biodynamic activities.
Help with a new Allotment plot for herbs and bee friendly plants would be appreciated.
I can offer guidance on growing food, beekeeping, gathering wild food/medicine, outdoor cooking and generally getting by without owning land. A large spare truck with solid fuel burner and mini kitchen could accommodate a couple or up to two good friends sharing.
|Our croft is situated in the highlands of Scotland. Public transport is by bus from Inverness. Basic accommodation is in the family home. We have 4 cows and followers, and a domestic cat. We prefer non-smoking guests. We do not normally work on Sundays. We cultivate an organic vegetable garden and 2 organic hayfields. There is an area of woodland behind our house and wildlife can be observed. ||View |
|We are a family of 4 (of which 2 young people aged 18 & 20, live here part time) living on a ½ hectare smallholding near the university town of Bangor, Snowdonia National Park and beaches. We have a multi-purpose site run on permaculture principles and try to work with nature for the benefit of us and wildlife. We have growing areas that are more traditionally organic horticulture, orchard and soft fruit, wild areas, woodland, alternative edible species less commonly known and also encourage wild plants that are useful to us and nature. We have a cat, hens, ducks and bees and we sell eggs, vegetables, fruit, honey and beehive products. We grow willow for building living willow structures and are involved in a number of food growing projects in schools and the local community. Other interests include sustainable living, swimming, local football, yoga, Non Violent Communication, family life and practicing French, Welsh & German whenever possible. ||View |

We keep a flock of Hebridean sheep which we hand shear to provide knitting wool. We process our own meat in November each year. We also have bees and hens. We have a large vegetable garden with many raised beds, fruit bushes and trees and a large polytunnel.
We would love some help with cutting peats for winter fuel, making hay, weeding, harvesting and general help in the vegetable garden and occasional help to gather/shear/ dose the sheep. There may also be an opportunity to do some beekeeping if interested.
Accomodation - we have two spare double bedrooms. We eat a varied diet of meat and vegetarian food and any help with cooking and in the kitchen is very welcome!
We love playing traditional music with friends.
|We are a 'green' couple trying got keep our carbon footprint as low as possible and grow our own food. We have 2 and a half allotments for 25 + years (2 x 100 rods), and no livestock. No technology other than radio but plenty of books, (3 languages), games, puzzles and darts. Make own bread and yoghurt and jam. Preserve and dry and juice fruit and veg etc. All organic which is why we need some help - digging, weeding, pest control (manual) sowing, transplanting. Will teach if wished. |
PHONE IN THE EVENINGS TO ARRANGE YOUR VISITS. (Maybe out Frid or Sat or phone early in the morning.)
As a former wwoofer myself I would hope to offer a comfortable, diverse and interesting experience for our guests. I can point you to various interesting projects in our neighbourhood such as a Community Supported Agriculture scheme and a biodynamic farm, a permaculture set up and local Transition initiatives. Accommodation: we have room in the cottage.
We have a garden - which grows fruit and some veg, two cats and woodland right beside the house, although our home is near to a main road. Work just now includes general maintenance of the garden, planting , turning compost. Improving chicken pen area.
We love to welcome wwoofers here and enjoy sharing time with them doing everyday fun things.This site is suitable for a couple or individuals.
|Mature garden with fruit trees, soft fruit, large vegetable patch and laying hens. All developed over the last 30+ years organically. There is also a greenhouse and poly tunnel. There have been goats and pigs previously so the soil is in good condition. Permaculture methods are gradually being incorporated. |
Friendly dogs and a cat also reside with us.
Please note we are a busy household and as we'd like to work alongside any volunteers we can only accommodate short stays, up to a maximum of 5 days.
|*Please check our availability before emailing!* Log cabin and gardens on four acres. We are building a permaculture garden at 240mtrs to produce food for the family and aiming to build a sustainable woodland to support the many varieties of Scottish wildlife in the area: deer, pinemarten, red squirrels, owls etc. We keep chickens for egg production. Current projects include adding a second polytunnel, building hotbeds, planting trees and developing more space for veg growing. |

|We are situated in approx 1/2 acre of land in the small picturesque crofting village of Torrin in S.W Skye. Torrin sits on the edge of Loch Slapin, and is surrounded by the Red and Black Cuillin mountains. Fabulous if you enjoy walking, climbing and swimming in sea & river. Torrin also has a small cafe 'The Blue Shed' which serves delicious homemade cakes. |
Working with us includes the up-keep of garden and polytunnel. There are many growing areas yet to be established, providing opportunities for any creative wwoofers to become involved with. Current projects also include - groundwork/erection of a workshop and we would very much like to build a compost toilet so if anyone has experience in this area we would love to hear from you.
We have five bee colonies, so if you have any serious reactions to bee stings... We also have two cats - Pippin & Sabrina.
|We're a family with a large allotment, looking for WOOFERS who are enthusiastic, hard working and who love nature. Some experience of growing is great but not essential as we are experienced allotmenters - more important is being friendly, hard-working, taking initiative and willingness to learn and take instruction. We are also really willing to learn from you too. Other WOOF hosts have a plot next to us so there's possibility of a longer stay. |
We are in SW London -just 20 minute tube ride from Central London and all the main attractions, so after a hard day's work you can enjoy all that London has to offer!
Our allotment has all the usual tasks - weeding, digging, etc.. there may be opportunity for other projects like building a willow den, tree-house etc... For your stay to be a happy one, you must be willing to be part of our household with children, a dog and cat, including sharing chores / cooking. You will have your own room during your stay and be welcomed as part of our family.
|We are a mixed farm of 600 ha and our aim is to provide local organic food at reasonable prices to the local community. |
We welcome longterm (6 weeks min) wwoofers in the 15 acre market garden with polytunnels where we grow 80 varieties of vegetables and soft fruit, supplying our busy 100% organic farm shop, cafe and education centre.
We are best suited for wwoofers genuinely interested in learning what it is like to grow vegetables soft fruit and cut flowers on a commercial holding (not the best place for learning english as wwoofers dont live with host family) and wwoofers work as hard as the paid workers. The shop, garden and cafe employ over 35 people including 4 - 8 in the garden but we are not a residential community.
|Established over 30 years. 5.5 acre croft in beautiful, coastal and mountainous surroundings. 2.5 acres garden with polytunnel, veg/fruit/trees/herbs. Chickens. We have a small business growing and drying herbs, our main occupation is surviving on a remote peninsula.We are a crofting community with an alternative bias. We welcome those who seek to develop a knowledge of crofting and organic/bio-dynamic gardening - some innovative building help is also welcomed. Can take non-working paying guests - private comfy bothy by the sea too.Accommodation for wwoofers in bothy if not in use. We plant and sow using the bio-dynamic calendar. |
We may not be able to take on couples in the late winter/early spring.
Due to our remote location we are very sorry but travel by public transport is difficult to say the least (unless its summer time and you are very determined and up for an adventure!) our croft would suit wwoofers who have their own transport and enjoy a 2 hour walk. Many thanks!
|We are situated 5 minutes drive from the historic Wiltshire town of Malmesbury. |
We are a commercial veg farm with the emphasis on quality fresh, local and seasonal produce - which we sell at local markets, restaurants and via a local box-scheme. The work reflects this and will naturally include lots of hands on work on the land.
We are very friendly, love people of all types, and our only requirement is a willingness to work hard to the best of your ability - and in return we will try and make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Visitors will stay in a studio in our garden, or at the farm either camping or in a caravan.
We are midway between 2 beautiful historical towns - Malmesbury and Tetbury, all accessible by bicycle. The river Avon is nearby and there are many local attractions such as the Westonbirt Arboretum and beautiful Cotswold villages and scenery.

|2 houses joined together, one is my home (currently shared with a German friend), the other is for airbnb guests on short term stays. All are surrounded by a largish varied garden with organic vegetable planters as well as wildlife meadow, fruit trees, camomile lawn, wildlife pond and mini woodland etc. Compost supports most of the planting. |
The projects are varied, clearing overgrown paths, repairing/rebuilding raised beds. But I also need general help painting and weeding.
The house is quirky, full of unusual art and decor created by my late wife and I. Ideally would suit someone who really appreciates gardens and being outside most of the time. Your accommodation is in my side of the house in nice ground floor bedroom with good internet (wired). 5 hours work a day if possible. Shared bathroom, meals organic vegetarian , would prefer someone who is happy to cook sometimes, you will find a lot of inspiration, peace and learning while here. Sorry no smokers.
|I love my garden, created over the past 15 years from the corner of a field. In the wildlife pond, there are lots of tadpoles and a couple of newts! |
The garden has vegetable and fruit beds, a polytunnel, a zig zagging flower bed, a separate herb garden, a couple of damson trees and an uncooperative apple tree. A hedge of indigenous species forms the southern field boundary.
It also has a couple of chairs and a hammock to sit and enjoy it all plus the woodland and open valley views.
I have a flower garden at the front of the house with moss lawn and hedges.
The village, set in open countryside, is one long row of houses on a hillside, left when the colliery and housing were demolished in the 1960's.
On the site of the old colliery have a neighbourhood nature reserve and a Durham Wildlife Reserve towards the head of the valley. We're a few miles from Weardale, Durham City and 15 miles from Newcastle/Gateshead.

We advise wwoofers to have insurance.
Children are learning French and Spanish so practise would be helpful!!
|We're a 16,000 acre deer stalking Estate on the Isle of Jura off the west coast of Scotland, one of the most remote farms in Argyll. We can offer a range of experiences depending on season, from feeding cattle to clearing rhododendrons. We have 65 Luing x Limousin cattle and 40 Jacob sheep plus Kune Kune pigs and ponies but our main business is cattle farming and red deer stalking. We're a family looking for help on lots of levels - whether it's maintaining woodland walks, beach cleaning or helping with the veggie patch and polytunnel. If you're sociable and prepared to muck in and don't mind being 17 miles away from the only shop, this could be the place for you….. Because of our remote location and lack of public transport, a driving licence is essential. ||View |
|We're David & Gillian and we've pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys sheep 2 dogs and a farm cat who patrols outside. The animals are your main daily task, they need watered, fed, let out/ locked up, mucked out, which takes around 1 1/2 hour each morning and 40 mins each night (mucking out twice a week adds another hour or so to the morning routine). |
Our 24 acre smallholding is in the countryside just outside Glasgow, Scotland's largest city.
During our recent house build our large veg garden was rather ruined so we'd love for you to help strim weeds and thistles, fencing, build paths and ultimately get our 16 large raised beds back to production. We also have a 10m x 30m polytunnel that needs to be completed, a geodome under construction and a fruit cage to erect plus more raised beds to build.

|We are a mixture: family home, food grower who participates in local food initiatives, biennial sculpture exhibition, venue for life-enhancing talks and courses. We are very much in the process of change and development. Sometimes it is very quiet, and at other times very busy. I wanted to put 1-5 for the number of adult hosts, as I am sometimes alone but sometimes not, and there are gardeners and others here by day. |
We need help with picking and preserving produce, but could also use all sorts of other skills to do with growing, building and organising. Please note that 2017 is our year off from our sculpture exhibition, so the busy cafe that you see in the pictures will not be operating.
We are veggie-centric: this means we eat very little meat or fish, and are very welcoming to vegetarians and vegans. We are happy to host meat eaters, but not if they expect to eat meat more than about once a week.

We are situated in a rural area, the closest neighbours being half a mile in either direction.
Although it is a small-holding, being 99 acres, the land is let out to a sheep farmer. This means the Wwoofer has all that space, and beyond, to go for a lovely country walk!
The work is mainly in the garden. At the moment there is a reclamation programme going on. It has been neglected for various reasons.
There is work in the birch woods:-
Cutting gorse or undergrowth to make pathways
Cutting bracken (if the Wwoofer is happy to do so)
Painting farm gates and doors

|We are both over 60 (Jane broke her back last year) and can't keep up with keeping the land in order. We need someone who is strong and fit and is capable of getting on with things without much supervision, and who enjoys working on their own at times. |
We live in a hilly wooded area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB), with an orchard, paddock, wood and family vegetable patch. We are situated on top of a hill with fabulous views.
Work here is chiefly maintenance - clearing brambles, trimming and laying hedges, cutting grass, weeding and watering the vegetable patch, pruning fruit trees, bonfires etc.
At certain times of the year we will be harvesting and chopping timber for log burners from our own wood.
We have some raised beds for vegetables and are in the proccess of constructing them whilst also growing vegetables on another patch of our land. However, this year our growing is minimal due to my injury so vegetable growing will not be the bulk of the work.

We live on an acre of land that has woodland, stream, a garden and 2 polytunnels to grow our food. We have chickens, a dog and a few cats. We are on a very low income so our lifestyle may seem quite simple to you. We use as little electricity and water as possible, fell our own wood for heating and our diet is mostly simple, homemade but nourishing.
Our property is vegetarian and is the ethos of how the land is managed and we do our best to tread lightly on our land.
Accommodation is a small 4 berth caravan which can accommodate 2 adults and two young children and 3 meals are provided daily.
I'm looking for help with getting and keeping on top of the land and the outside buildings.
Families are particularly welcomed.
|Glenelg is a very beautiful and quite isolated peninsula that overlooks the Isle of Skye.This is an old manse in its own grounds (3.5 acres) one mile from the sea. We do B&B and self catering and we look after cultural study groups from time to time. Our walled garden is cultivated with two polytunnels, vegetable patch, raised beds and orchard. ||View |
|We (Timothy and Charlotte) are presently living in temporary accommodation 5 miles from Baldarroch and will not be taking WWOOFers until further notice. |
We will be building a house on our farm within the next 18 months but will be starting to create our new garden and grounds including a Lochside and woodland walk when we will most likely be taking WWOOFers again.
There may also be work on the farm maintaining woodland and hedges.
WWOOFers should have an interest in the outdoors, wildlife and wild animal management.
Familiarity with machinery (chainsaws if qualified) mowers, tractors will be a benefit.
Work is as varied as possible from day to day.
|We live on a small hillside, surrounded by a large private estate. We have 4 fields, one rented to a local farmer, the others grazed by 2 alpacas and, during the summer months, by RDA ponies. We have a large garden, with lawns, shrubs and trees, a woodland area with pond (where we have reared mallards) and 2 delapidated semidetached cottages in need of attention, as well as a new vegetable garden near solar panels in a corner of a field. We have a few acres of amenity woodlands, planted circa 20 years ago (Robert is passionate about forestry!). |
We need help in the garden with weeding, building stone walls, stabilising the cottages. We want to improve the vegetable patch and create paths and a fenced hen run as we have foxes, polecats and badgers and have lost our hens in June (again). We need help in the woods with weed control, thinning and firewood extraction.
|THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST. PLEASE NOTE WE ONLY NOW HAVE VACANCIES FROM 20 SEPTEMBER 2017 ONWARDS. PLEASE ONLY APPLY ON OR AFTER 31 JULY 2017. We live in a picturesque area between the Mourne Mountains and the Dromara Hills, with a well established garden with fruit trees/bushes, vegetable beds, hedging , lawn, a pasture field and apple orchard. |
We have a 5 year old (home educated) , a 2 year old, and a new baby expected in May 2017 and re looking to welcome WWOOFers to give much needed assistance with the organic fruit and vegetable gardens over the coming season.
We particularly welcome anyone willing to help with the children as part of their daily work schedule including volunteers with children of their own.
