|Preview host||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. We don't use fossil fuels for heating so this means a lot of wood cutting!
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 recently completed our first polytunnel (polycrub) to extend the growing season.
|Preview host||There are two of us, a retired artist and youth worker,with three cats. one dog, living in our seaside house (beach 200m) with garden and 2 allotments in next village. Have practised organic gardening and permaculture for ten years. I have a permaculture qualification.. We grow many veg, fruit and herbs.. We are active, sociable, accustomed to living and working with other people in many situations and expect WWOOFers to live as family, helping with washing up, etc. Need help with garden and allotments, harvesting and conserving produce, sowing and planting, composting,digging, plus some woodwork/maintenance. |
All home vegetarian cooking, can teach baking, jam making, wine making, dehydration. Aim is for as much self sufficiency as possible. I am limited by having had two knee replacement ops and cannot do heavier jobs.
For free time, conversation, beach, bikes, outings, art materials.
Sorry, only room for one Wwoofer.
|Preview host||We're (almost) self-sufficient in vegetables, growing for our family for 23 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: normally a bedroom in the house, but sometimes camping is summer. 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 general maintenance. |
NOTE - we have about 2-3 enquiries a day. We are unlikely to agree to have you here unless you have especially useful skills and/or sound interesting!
|Preview host||3 acres of fruit, vegetables, nuts, rough pasture, greenhouses, herb garden and young woodland area. Large scale rainwater collection and solar heating systems.

|Preview host||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.
|Preview host||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. |
|Preview host||We are a couple 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.

We keep a flock of Hebridean sheep which we hand shear to provide knitting wool. We process our own meat. We also have bees and hens, a large vegetable garden with many raised beds, fruit bushes and trees and a large polytunnel.
We would love help with cutting peats, making hay, weeding, harvesting, general help in the garden and occasional help to gather/shear/ dose the sheep and with beekeeping.
Accomodation - either a bedroom in the house or in our new shed where there will be basic accommodation. We eat meat and vegetarian food and any help with cooking and in the kitchen is very welcome!
We love playing traditional music with friends.
|Preview host||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.)
|Preview host||A back garden behind a terraced house is currently being converted to organic fruit and vegetable plots, mainly using raised beds, and to include a green house. |
In order to create the optimum growing environment in this spot the earth is being systematically seived and cleaned of 200 years plus of domestic debris, including the usual bricks, glass, ceramics etc.
Numerous Victorian items have been unearthed, including dolls, toy tea sets, pipes, pots, glass jars all showing an active history within such a small plot.
The garden may not produce crops for some time as we intend to purify the soil with Hungarian Rye and clover etc over winter.
Additionally 2 allotments are nearby. A car is available for transportation.
It is expected that Wwoofers would garden in all areas, while staying in the house in East Finchley.
|Preview host|| |
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.
|Preview host||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 usually only accommodate short stays, up to a maximum of 5 days.
In the autumn there will be an opportunity to participate in cider making!
|Preview host||*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.

|Preview host||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.
|Preview host||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 OVER 21yrs 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.
|Preview host||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!
|Preview host||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.

In the summer the accommodation could be in a tent if preferred. Some meals will be self catering and some shared with us as we are a busy family. The food will mainly be from our own farm and garden. The work would mainly be in the garden but also help with livestock as and when required, some cooking, and some building work. We have just got permission to build a barn so wwoofers with practical skills especially welcome! |

|Preview host||2 houses joined together, one is my home (shared with my partner Eibhlin), 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.

|Preview host||Our Victorian walled garden in its 3rd year of restoration after some years of inactivity. In the first 2 years most of the efforts and resources were spent reclaiming the garden from weeds and brambles. |
The garden now provides vegetables and soft fruit to residents staying on the estate, visitors to the area and locals in and around Lochaline.
Ideally we would like a volunteer/s with experience of horticulture however guidance will be given. Duties are dependent on experience but may include, grass cutting, weeding, sowing and planting, harvesting and serving customers.
The area is rugged, remote and breathtakingly beautiful. It is a couple of miles from the village of Lochaline and a relatively short journey to Fort William, the nearest town, which has most amenities. There is also a small ferry to take you to the Isle of Mull.
Accommodation is a 3 bedroom self catering unit with TV, and WiFi available, which you may be sharing with other WWOOFers. Meals won't be provided but an allowance can be allocated for supplies.
|Preview host||We're David & Gillian & we've pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys sheep 2 dogs & an old cat who now lives in the house. 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 and changing waters twice a week adds another hour or two to the morning routine). |

We also take students from agricultural colleges and also those who want to or need to learn English as part of there education.
It can be great fun but hard work. We look forward to hearing from you.
We like people who talk and are chatty. Even if your English is not good, it will only get better if you try. We are here to encourage and help.
We are a non smoking farm.
We do like students to stay as long as possible as this allows us to give them responsibility in areas on the farm.
|Preview host||We are a mixture: family home, garden renowned for its roses and borders, food grower, art & events venue. Sometimes it is 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 suit wwoofers who are fairly confident and independent, but the garden work is supervised. During the early months of the year, we need general garden help - blowing leaves, making compost, planting and mulching. In the spring and summer, the emphasis changes to picking and preserving produce, as well as general garden maintenance. This summer (2018) is our biennial sculpture exhibition, so we will also need help during our installation period in May and while the exhibition is in progress.
We are veggie-centric: we eat little meat or fish, and we welcome vegetarians and vegans. We can host meat eaters, but they won't eat meat every day! Wwoofers must be able to cook for themselves sometimes.
|Preview host||I have an family run organic apple |
juice company. I have just started and it's very exciting times. I have support from my father and my family/ friends however they work and I am in need of a willing volunteer for an great and positive learning opportunity which could lead to further opportunities with us if you like.
Looking for late august onwards! Apple season :)
I have a 3 bed bungalow flat which is excellent accommodation.

We are hugely community based as people also bring their own apples which I cold hydropress, pasteurise and personalise with their own label.
Looking for someone who can embrace this opportunity, who is positive, physically able and must be able to drive. Ideally interested in learning, hard work and looking to be part of the business. Ideally 18-40 years old but nothing set in stone.
This is a great opportunity to join a fun, positive, friendly up and coming business interacting with the general public.

What we offer WWOOFers is a beautiful place to be and work, close to Glastonbury, and beautiful comfortable accommodation in our cabin, caravan, tipi or bell-tent. By joining in with the gardening and land maintenance jobs of the season or helping build retreat spaces, we can teach a wide range of organic permaculture practises and building skills, as well as chicken and natural bee-keeping. We are a small friendly community that would particularly suit more independent and sociable WWOOFers - sometimes meals will be shared with our family, sometimes with other WWOOFers and sometimes we will provide you with ingredients to prepare meals yourself.

We love cooking and make a wide range of organic food (kombucha, breads, kimchi, jams, butter, yoghurt, kefir, herbal tea/medicines, herbal ointments, pasta) and would be delighted to share tips on the both the garden and cooking with you. We like to use our own produce as much as possible and also love to forage from the local countryside.
The surrounding area is beautiful and there are lovely walks (a stones throw away!), villages and other things to do. London is also easily accessible via a 40 min train.
|Preview host||A restored 1794 rectory at the foot of the Sperrin Mountains in the heart of Ulster. |
12 acres including 4 acres of meadow, 3 of mixed woodland and perhaps 2 growing fruit and vegetables.
And a river runs through it.
The chemical free apple orchard and kitchen garden is essentially non commercial although the apples and plums are usually abundant enough to be sold 'at the gate'.
Help is most needed in the fruit and vegetable garden and the apple and plum orchard, especially at harvest time, although there are always jobs to do around the place.
|Preview host||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.
|Preview host||WE'RE PARTICULARLY WELCOMING ENQUIRIES FOR MARCH AND APRIL 2018. 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 6 year old (home educated), a 3 year old, and a not-yet-1 year old and are looking to welcome WWOOFers to give much needed assistance with the organic fruit and vegetable gardens over the coming season.
