|Preview host||Our wood is 60 acres of chestnut coppice with stands of beech, scots pine, douglas, cedar and giant sequoia. It is the base for a collection of small enterprises: a cafe, forest school, woodland products business. And a growing number of members who come to help out and share their skills. The wood is also open to the public for walks, BBQs, camping, parties. |
We recently took over the Woods and are in the exciting early stages of developing it as a hub for artisans and an instead-of-school. Plans in the pipe-line include: chestnut cabins for visiting families and apprentices to sleep in, new workshops and studios to allow more people to work here, a swimming pond and a new meeting space.
We are looking for people who can help with some or all of the following: green wood-working, carpentry, building, gardening, forestry, maintenance, house-work, cooking, and chicken-keeping.
Our children don't go to school much so we are looking for people who enjoy having kids around.
|Preview host||We are a small, friendly farm with a vine yard, pigs, sheep and horses. |
We offer training and work experience in cider making, hedge laying, fencing, grassland management, sausage making (for those who are okay with handling meat), pig rearing and building.
Some work is physical (strimming etc), but some is much easier (bottle labelling!)...so we try to even the activities out
Our farm aims to be sustainable, being run mainly off of grid.
Accommodation is in a mobile home with full facilities, including a log burning stove.
We are on a direct bus route into the historic cities of Bath and Wells, with easy access to Bristol and other local towns. There is also a pub within walking distance.
We are flexible about hours worked per day and days of the week worked and willing to consider most proposal...
|Preview host|| We warmly welcome our neighbours from Europe, and look forward to sharing our skills, space and time with you to ensure that we all get the very best out of our time together on our small farm |
Work is varied each day and will include general upkeep and maintenance of the farm and Garden and our newly erected poly tunnel and some help in the house and campsite when we are busy, and looking after the animals.
Spring 2017 offers another great opportunity to help build a mobile hut-like a shepherds hut and learn some basic carpentry skills.
WWOOFers need to come in pairs for company, unless they are self contained and want to be by themselves maybe to maximise learning English.
Accomodation is in a small caravan where you will be expected to prepare and cook most of your meals with food we provide. We will help you to enjoy your days off so you can explore our local area, and Brighton and possibly London, and we will go out together and walk, bike and explore.
|Preview host||We have approx fourteen acres of land which need a lot of hedging and ditching, We also have a large garden where we like to plant vegetables and flowers .We have chickens and a few elderly sheep..so always a lot to do ! |
The accomodation is a very nice self contained attic flat so a couple would be ideal, we are fairly rural although in walking distance of a small town.
|Preview host||Welcome to our Farm, we are an organic farm growing tea from seed, herbal and medicinal plants. |
We also look after a small mixed young forest area and have two pigmy goats and Cookie the Springer Spaniel.
We have accommodation in a small cabin powered by solar panels and heated by wood stove. This is suitable for 1 or two people.
Bigger groups are welcome by arrangement and probably staying in tents.

|Preview host||In 2010 I acquired this 50 acre croft on the lower slope of Tap O'Noth ancient Pictish site. I have rare breed sheep, fattening pigs and have chickens and horses, cats and dogs. Run on my own, with occasional casual help and the support of my elderly mother. We lamb in April. Weaner pigs arrive in March. Both very busy times. |
There is general maintenance, fencing and tree planting to be done and my next project is to clear out and re-instate and old dam with a view to producing our own electricity via a mirco hydro scheme. There is also work to be done in a polytunnel and in re-establishing a garden.
We have a range of farm buildings and run B&B and Barn camping, see website.
A fully qualified equine massage practitioner, I would be happy to instruct a WWOOFer. Accommodation would either be in house or barn camping. Great area for wildlife, walking Whiskey trails and castles. Please ring any evening for further information. We look forward to welcoming you to our home.
|Preview host||We live in Co Down, on the east coast of the Ards Peninsula, about 20 miles east of Belfast. We have approximately 30 acres of land, mostly woodland and garden, with a few fields which are currently let to a local farmer. The 19th century arboretum contains many rare and unusual trees and shrubs; Rhododendrons, magnolias, camelias etc. We are restoring and revitalising the gardens and need help with clearing and cutting brambles, pulling ivy off trees, general clearing of fallen trees and debris and making bonfires. Also weeding, mulching and replanting, identification and labelling of trees and shrubs. |
We have an old wall covered in ivy, and needs clearing. We also have a stream which flows through the property and this has become clogged with fallen branches and debris, and we want to get it cleaned up and flowing properly. We would like help with splitting logs for the woodshed and gathering kindling. We grow a few herbs and vegetables but would like help to develop this, as well as a new area for growing flowers for cutting.
|Preview host||Hello, Although we are new WWOOF hosts we have hosted many foreign students in the past when we were more actively farming. Now we only have a few chickens and a large organic vegetable garden and coppiced woodland. A neighbor rents the grassland. We live in the Shropshire Hills so wonderful countryside for walking and wildlife. The nearest small town is Church Stretton. Historic Shrewsbury (N)and Ludlow (S)are about 15 miles away and there is train and bus connections to them for none car owners. We garden organically and rear or buy local high welfare standards meat. We are not purists but try to shop and live ethically within our means. |
We work with the seasons so seeding, planting and growing in the spring, weeding and growing in the summer and harvesting, storing, bottling, making jam in the autumn and clearing up ready for winter.
We include our students/WWOOFers as part of the family and we prepare the meals and eat together. There is always talking and banter!
|Preview host||We are a 177 acre organic farm - mostly grass, small area of arable, small apple orchard and some woodland. We keep suckler cows, sheep and a free-range breeding flock of Norfolk Black turkeys. We also run a wood boiler which heats 2 houses (this is carbon neutral heating - we don't burn oil). |
If you come here as a wwoofer you may be helping with with turkey plucking (December), cleaning and moving turkey houses (February and March), logging and preparing firewood (summer), apple harvesting and apple juicing (autumn) or many other things. One job that always needs doing is cooking - so all wwoofers get to help with preparing meals.
We try to run our farm and live our life in a way that is as sustainable as possible - so we welcome like-minded Wwoofers!
|Preview host||Our house and its well established garden sits on the bank of the River Dee near Banchory in Scotland. |
We are 26 miles west of Aberdeen, and there are regular busses that go from the end of our driveway to Aberdeen and farther West to Ballater and Braemar.
This is a very beautiful place, secluded and quiet.
The work required will be entirely outside, in the walled garden, fence and gate repairs, weeding and digging the vegetable patch, cutting back hedge, pruning small trees, there are hens around and we have four friendly dogs. There will be some cutting back of Ponticum Rhododendrons to create a woodland garden on the bank behind the house. Strimming the river paths and cutting back saplings, river bank repairs.
This would suit two people wishing to work together.
|Preview host||A rural retreat in the beautiful Sussex countryside with woodland, ponds and a beautiful flower garden. We garden organically and are gradually becoming more biodynamic in our approach. |
Work will involve sowing, planting, cultivating and maintenance as well as opportunities to work in our ancient coppiced wood and newly planted fruit orchard
We have a few free range organic hens and we keep bees for their honey and for their benefit to the garden and plants.
Accommodation is in a wooden cabin close to the main house or in tents if preferred. Toilet and washing facilities are a short distance away from the accommodation. The cabin has electricity and heating if required. Wifi is free.
The farm is close to the sea and the towns of Hastings, Rye and Tenterden. We are only an hour and a half from London by train.
Your hosts have been gardening organically for more than 20 years and have worked with volunteers supporting them and teaching them the necessary skills for growing organic food successfully and upholding a sustainable lifestyle.
|Preview host||Small co-housing group of 4-6 adults, living consciously together, sharing our (various) spiritual, political and social values. Located in the countryside close to Findhorn, in the North of Scotland. There is a vibrant alternative population in the area, attracted by the Findhorn Foundation community, to which we are loosely affiliated, and provides much of interest. Mainly self-sufficient in organic fruit and vegetables, we manage around 2 acres of land, including a large poly-tunnel, large vegetable growing areas, and many flower beds. We eat together 2 to 3 evenings a week, sharing the cooking. Accommodation is in a small caravan in the garden, with access to a shower and toilet in the communal area. We only have accommodation and work for one WWOOFer at a time. The work is mainly in our garden, but could also include work in other gardens, a woodland, cooking, building, cleaning or general maintenance. |
We do provide Rubber boots and outdoor jackets and overalls for medium sizes.
|Preview host||Our farm is a beautiful self-sustaining place, where animals, birds, plants and humans all live in a natural, healthy and happy way. Our chickens, geese, ducks, guinea fowl and turkeys roam free all over the farm. We have two milking goats. We have a Jersey cow with a calf, and three pigs. We are learning beekeeping. We grow vegetables in our garden and greenhouses. We have a lot of berry canes which give a prolific harvest every summer. We love planting trees; we have planted hundreds of trees around the farm, including fruit and nut trees. Our farm is young, we moved here five years ago. But it is developing in a happy organic and permaculture way. We are a family of four: husband and wife and two grown up boys, and we are firmly commited to natural, organic and sustainable management of land. We will be very happy to welcome young people who want to work with land and animals, who love our planet and want to restore it back to health, one farm at a time . |
|Preview host||This is a 170 acre family farm situated in the middle of lovely Cornwall. We are changing farming policy now, moving from suckler cows to a dairy herd. This will be up and running from June 2017. We are managing our pastures in a mob stocking style. We are also home to the Cornwall Beaver Project (check out Facebook) and we are still taking educational visits to the farm. We are also still dabbling in some pigs, just for fun. next year we will be commencing an agro-forestry trial too.We are also keen on making cider and have an antique press that gets used every Autumn |
|Preview host||We need help with our lovely, but slightly wild, 4-acre organic garden in idyllic rural setting close to Suffolk coast. Over 15 years we have created a special place for wildlife, as well as growing as much of our own fruit and veg as we can. There’s a large vegetable garden, greenhouse, meadows, flower borders, small orchard, fruit bushes and pond; also a few ducks and chickens + friendly dog and cat. |
But there are not enough hours in the day (Bill works full-time in coastal management and Fran is an artist) so we would welcome help to make the most of our beautiful but sometimes neglected plot.
There’s a great variety of jobs & potential projects but we particularly need help with the heavy work (eg mowing, compost, manure and logs) as well as growing/picking so are looking for experienced and creative gardeners who are strong and happy to muck in. Carpentry skills would also be useful.
Accommodation is (usually) in spacious pretty studio with own facilities. Shared meals with some self-catering. Help with cooking would be great!
|Preview host||We are a family run smallholding, working on organic principles for the last 25 years. We have 14 acres, with another 50 acres on the Lizard peninsula. We have orchards, a large vegetable and soft fruit garden and keep poultry, a horse and bees. |
We are 5 minutes from the coast and close to many good surfing beaches.
Help required with all sorts of projects, from lake building, woodland management, and green timber build, as well as the usual seasonal work.

|Preview host||Our house is set in 3 acres of garden and woodland in the drumlins of Co. Down with views to the Mourne Mountains and adjacent to Rowallane Gardens National Trust property. We live a mile from the village of Saintfield and approximately 15 miles to Belfast. (There is a regular bus service) We have two dogs. |
Our adult children have left home so their rooms are available for 2 WWOOFers travelling together, with use of their shower room. There is also a small sitting room with a wood burning stove and TV for use in the evenings. We want Wwoofers travelling in pairs/as a couple, no single Wwoofers please.
We try to live in as eco-friendly a way as we can. We have solar panels and a wood stove. We grow some fruit and vegetables but would like help to develop this; we need assistance to increase the size of the kitchen garden, improve the soil in it and the herb beds in the main garden
|Preview host||The work is gardening and community forestry. |
The garden of 0.75 acres has a vegetable plot, a small orchard and the rest is trees, shrubs, borders and lawn. A stream runs alongside and oak woods stretch up to the neighbouring hills. The house is a mile out of the small town of Clun. Good walking country completely surrounds the house and garden.
The garden produces vegetables and fruit. The garden work is mainly in the vegetable plot, maintaining and developing borders, wood stacking, turning compost and maintaining hard surfaces and may include bigger gardening projects.
The community woodland work is within 10 miles of the house at several different sites, where volunteers work to restore and maintain natural woodland, and produce firewood.
The house is newly renovated and the accommodation is in the house.
|Preview host||We are a dairy goat farm with a small number of other animals too (pigs, sheep, hens, donkey). |
We process the milk on the farm and also have a small campsite too. We are mainly looking for help with animal husbandry - milking and feeding the goats, cheese-making and help maintaining the campsite whilst Ian builds our house (2018 - 2020).
We're not registered organic but aim to follow a low-impact, environmentally friendly method of farming. See more details on our website.
|Preview host||We are a farm in West Wales, situated above the sea. |
In 2014 we will need help to cut back overgrown hedges, gardening, fencing, painting and with various jobs around the farm and house. Accommodation is a very nice flat on the farmyard.

There are many coastal footpaths in the area much enjoyed by our helpers.
|Preview host||We have a magical home, an old flour mill with a river running through the garden. Sadly the water wheel is long gone, but we would love to have a water wheel to generate energy, as well as our solar panels and an air source heat exchange pump. The two acre garden has been opened as part of the National Garden Scheme. The extensive vegetable garden has raised beds, soft fruits and a wide range of vegetables. The three acre small holding consists of sheep, chickens, ducks, pigs and bees. |
We run a B&B, listed as Cariad Room in a Magical Home on Airbnb. We also run art courses, bread making courses, cookery demonstrations, corporate days and the occasional wedding.I have a very comfortable bed in the art room and two double sofa beds with an adjacent shower room.
|Preview host||Our 54 acre organic hill farm is in beautiful rural Carmarthenshire, on the edge of Brechfa Forest, with a further 40 rented acres along the Cothi Valley. We breed native cattle and sheep, keep bees and grow vegetables. We sell wool, meat, honey and livestock, and host textile courses on the farm. |
Opportunities for wwoofers are many and varied - helping with sheep, cattle and bees, managing pasture, gardening, maintaining and developing new natural habitats, repairing buildings, preparing fleece, wool and honey for sale. The priority for 2017 is to improve the overall look of the farmyard and bring the wool barns and farm kitchen into full use.
