|Preview host||Hi, we are Rob, Linda and Demelza. Rob is a plant lover (and retired gardener) who has created our 3 acre garden over the past 20 years. We grow most of our own food, selling surplus, with the plan to increase this surplus! We grow as naturally as possible, without the use of herbicides and pesticides. We have an orchard, soft fruits, veg, herbaceous border, and a couple of polytunnels. We also have chickens, geese and cats. |
We welcome hard working, but easy going people who would be adaptable to our slightly random way of gardening! We ask about 5 hours a day, 5 days a week, but are quite relaxed and want you to enjoy your stay. Demelza did some WWOOFing last year, and had such a wonderful time, with such warm welcomes, we were prompted to become hosts ourselves.
We have a spare room in the house, and a caravan and camping available for warmer months or hardy campers!
|Preview host||For 8 years we have been following our dream of turning 16 acres of former sheep pasture into a productive smallholding that will provide our livelihood, fruit, vegetables, herbs, spring water, biodiversity, wood-fuel, craft materials, a home, spiritual nourishment and a grave! We hope this place can be inspirational for others seeking to live sustainably, grow organically, put permaculture thinking into practice, and work mindfully in close contact with nature. We manage our market garden using Charles Dowding’s no-dig methods, and our main business is supplying wonderful salad leaf mixes to around 15 local pubs, restaurants and shops. Work will include helping in the gardens, and general site management. |
Simple caravan accommodation and good compost toilet on site. We currently live a 20 minute walk away so volunteers need to be happy with their own company some of the time, with only birds around you – peaceful!
We eat mainly organic vegan wholefoods, with occasional fish, eggs and meat available. Will share most meals, and provide ingredients for others.
We enjoy the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, Zen Buddhist master.

|Preview host||We are a family of four that moved to a 30 acre farm in the Blackdown Hills near Cullompton in March 2016. We have an eco-friendly yurt business located in a tranquil, rural valley and a self-catering cottage business.

|Preview host||The house is mainly a holiday rental property with a separate cottage where I and any WWOOFers would stay. The garden and woodland comprise about 2 acres each and the rest of the land is currently left to its own devices, though I hope to set up a natural burial site here in time. Interior photos are of the cottage, where you'd stay. You need to like cats as there are three of them here. |
|Preview host||We are in a rural area approximately 1000ft above sea level and surrounded by open countryside with extensive views over the Preseli Mountains.

Accommodation available for wwoofers is in a 4/5 berth caravan in grounds with heating, hot water, toilet and shower, it is well-equipped with cooker, fridge, microwave, electric toaster and kettle. All your meals will be with us in the cottage. We are totally organic and extremely interested in permaculture, we have just completed raised beds in the vegetable garden following this method. The next project is to clear an area to make space for a poly tunnel for vegetables and plants. We also plan to create a healing garden with a water feature or pond to attract wildlife, as part of this we want to create a medicine wheel circle with seating with healing plants in all of the sections. |

We are developing a 2.5 acre Forest Garden, commercial vegetable gardens and bees. Work has begun this year on an experimental 'field scale' crop to
increase food growing in the uplands! There is always plenty of picking, preserving, sowing seed, weeding, mulching, repotting, watering and Cottage changeovers to do :)
Feeding the animals is a shared daily task
Forthcoming missions include finishing the beautiful 'waney-edged' cabin and we also have cunning plans afoot to create a 'hobbit house'! Normal duties would include the day to day running of a successful eco B&B holiday and box scheme business as well. Longer term WWOOFers with a genuine passion for the land and for life would be wholeheartedly welcome!

This family home, which dates back to medieval times, is lived in by my mother and some tenants. We can take shelter in the beautiful Orangery if the weather gets too wet. Here there is a bed and woodburner if anyone wants to stay over at the Hall,. We grow most veg and fruit on organic principles. There are also floral herbaceous borders that need renovating when we get the veg garden sorted. There are a few sheep and chickens to help us in our efforts to keep on top of the vegetation. |
There is woodland is alongside the river which affords very rare habitat for wildlife in this area. We have seen otters and kingfishers often from the lawn at the back of the house.
|Preview host||Myself, Michele, my husband Ian, and my daughter Nicole have been living at our smallholding for 6 years. We are a Permaculture site and LAND project centre. We host (i.e. do not run them ourselves) events and courses including, for example a 10 day vegan permaculture course. We have a 2 acre camping field, orchard, small wood, poly tunnel, greenhouses, fruit cage, wooden cabin, vegetable beds. Most of the organic veg we grow are used for catering for events if needed. |
We need help with general land maintenance: cutting back excess vegetation, clearing. Also preparing the veg beds, planting out seedlings, watering. MIN 5 days, MAX 14 days, for 1 or 2 WWOOFers. There is a pub across the road and Glastonbury is close. No illegal drugs please. Please email.
|Preview host||Eco-house on a small holding of meadows & small woodland in the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, overlooking Stiperstones National Nature Reserve. I have two ponies, one used to drive and haul firewood, the other to ride and in training. Small garden growing veg and fruit, mini-forest garden. |
The work is managing fields and woodland, including wood chopping, scything, mending fences and DiY making simple equipment. Also working with ponies, developing their training, exercising, depending on WWoofer's interest and experience.
|Preview host||The majority of the farm is let to a neighbouring Dairy farmer, but we have extensive environmental improvements to make including hedge laying and planting, ditching, dry stone walling and fencing. |
We currently rear Billy Goats (a by-product from the dairy industry)from 7days old to 6months- the cutest stage in any animals lifespan! We also have a small heard of free-range rose-veal. On top of this we have an assortment of Pigs, Ducks, Chickens, Ferrets and many dogs!
|Preview host||Within the beautiful Scottish Borders we are tackling the invasive rhodedendrons within our woodland which have increased dramatically as the woodland has been opened up to encourage the growth of a more native broadleaved woodland. |
Accomodation is in our family home: individual bedrooms and a shared bathroom for our guests. There is also a sitting room with TV available.
|Preview host||The farm is a traditional small Northumbrian farm - with a collection of stone and tin outbuildings. Its 23 acres are tenanted out to a sheep farmer - but the land immediately around the buildings is put into food production in a variety of styles. |
There is an emphasis on recycling - esp wood, but also other building materials.
Hadrian's Wall path passes 20 metres behind the property - and the historic Heavenfield Church is across 1 field. Whilst being high up on the Wall, the property is sheltered by mature deciduous trees.
We moved here in May 2014 - and are trying to follow permaculture design principles. Being on pretty solid rock most growing is in raised beds.
We are involved with woodland management, with a 21 acre wood under our management within 1 mile of the site - there is also sometimes the opportunity to get involved with an off-site project like willow fence weaving, or hazel coppicing.
We also are involved with firewood production and are establishing a biochar business.
