|Preview host||We are a family run woodland just outside Fishguard in beautiful Pembrokeshire. You will be working alongside us with the work including: Coppicing, charcoal production, scything (path maintenance), firewood splitting, habitat creation and other jobs relating to the management of the woodland. All our work aims to help nature and local wildlife. |
Almost all the work on the land takes place using hand tools so you will have a great chance to learn how to use axes, bill hooks and other traditional tools. In the summer we run a campsite so some spring work will involve getting set up for this which will involve preparing the land, some carpentry and the chance to work on some greenwood timber frame structures.
We hope that working with us will provide you with loads of new skills (or the chance to improve existing ones) and to work in a beautiful environment with friendly and welcoming people.
|Preview host||We are URGENTLY looking for wwoofers to help with spring planting! We are a small family farm producing slow maturing free range rare breed pork, lamb and poultry. Our animals are naturally reared outdoors to the highest welfare standards. We also grow a variety of seasonal fruits and veg, sell our produce at farmer's markets and other events. We have also recently planted a cider orchard in conjunction with a local cidermaker, who produces really tasty cider! |
This year 2018 we are finally opening our farmshop here on the farm and hope to expand our poultry and veg growing to stock it.
We also hold many events on the farm, from family open days, music evenings, to weddings. So work here is always varied and interesting!
A typical day on the farm could involve anything from gardening, fencing and green building projects to livestock care and feeding to helping at farmers markets or events!? All very rewarding work in fun and educational environment!!
|Preview host||We have lived at this property for five years and are trying to create a more self-sufficient small holding on our four acres. We have some chickens, as well as mature fruit gardens, a newly planted orchard and forest garden, a newly planted field of trees - willows for firewood and avenues to become a secluded campsite one day - as well as vegetable gardens and a highly productive polytunnel. There are many maintenance tasks around the property and in the gardens. We focus on establishing perennial, forest type gardens. We are currently completing the building of a strawbale cabin for additional family accommodation, using rammed tyre foundations. We now have plans to complete the landscaping around the cabin, add some fences and plant some hedges, plant the wildflower meadow and build some platforms for bell tents. |
We have both travelled fairly extensively and are comfortable with all tastes, diets and cultures.
|Preview host||A basic field with a newly built cabin, will one day host courses on aspects of self-sufficiency, as well as providing a space for people to get involved with growing food, all set up with a minimum of monetary investment. |
As an ex I.T. technician, I am skilling myself up using the Internet and friends - join us! Plans this year: creating a 1/4 acre edible forest garden, market garden beds, compost loo, electric fencing etc.
Currently planted 2000 willow, 400 native and 70+ apple trees for future use. Just installed small polytunnel with another planned this summer.
|Preview host||I have lived here for 5 years, I previously had a smallholding in Bude and grew organic vegetables commercially Soil Ass reg. I dont have livestock, but I have a pony and trap. There are wonderful walks as I am on the coastal footpath. |
I use only organic methods to grow veggies and fruit and I have a 4 year forest garden. I am a cook and am passionate about good food.
|Preview host||Organic farm near coast, two miles from Axminster. We have apple and pear orchards, a veg garden, a herb garden, a soap making workshop, carpentry workshop, sheep for textiles, and a few chickens. |
We are creating an educational centre using the farm as a place to learn about food and energy production, health and rural skills. We have an abundance to wild harvest and a natural water supply. We offer a warm welcome to anyone who can help us make the most of all this potential.
|Preview host||Help needed with all aspects of gardening and Cafe work. |

|Preview host||Foot-Slope-Soap was founded in 2015 by two artists with a passion for the environment. Our valley, with its surrounding hills cloaked in SSSI ancient oak woodlands, is renowned for being the most beautiful in all Ceredigion, popular with hikers, cyclists and wild swimmers. We are looking for enthusiastic but mindful help at the very beginning of our exciting new project. We aspire to have our 18 acres, mostly pasture at present, eventually reach certified organic status. The land, temporarily let to a respected local sheep farming couple, includes a river and two acres of mature deciduous woodland. Current work is concentrated on outbuildings, and beginning construction of an organic garden and apiary near the main house. The original farmhouse is a 17th century Welsh longhouse, being carefully renovated to provide further accommodation. The hayloft is now a cosy private sleeping barn for two. The converted 18th century threshing barn has accommodation for one/two WWOOFERs and us, with shared bathroom, fitted kitchen, woodburners and even carpets. NOTE: there is very limited WIFI, no TV, and rarely any mobile signal. |
|Preview host||We are situated in the rolling green "Drumlins" on the edge of Rathfriland village, a rural farming community. The small holding overlooks the Mourne Mountains and is also half an hour from beautiful forests and beaches. |
Activities include tending the organic garden plot, tree planting and maintenance, old barn restoration using lime, fencing, splitting wood and drying.
The host is passionate about the outdoors and enjoying the local environment is encouraged. Depending on the time of year there will be opportunities for active Woofers to go kayaking, mountain biking or mountain walking.Also eating good homemade food (mostly vegan) and log fire.
Spring 2018 Plans: Planting out oak saplings, thinning existing woodland. Preparing and planting veg and herb plots.Tree pruning. Stone walls and restoration of barn walls. Also the chance to learn breadmaking.
|Preview host||We run Britain's most northerly veg box scheme from a 50 acre croft situated in the far west mainland of Shetland. We are committed to providing the local community with chemical free produce, growing with minimal fossil fuel use and reducing Shetland's carbon footprint. We use pigs and spades to clear ground instead of tractors; hand tools for weeding and harvesting. Our enterprise is expanding each year, increasing our growing land and our customers. We keep animals for manure and meat; at present we have 20 Shetland sheep (and their lambs), two pigs, 90 hens, lots of ducks and three cats. |
Tasks include clearing ground, sowing, planting, weeding and harvesting; working with livestock, fencing, cutting peat for fuel and erecting polytunnels all depending on the time of year. WWOOFers should be willing to mix with the local community.
We are looking for WWOOFers who are genuinely committed to a sustainable lifestyle, have experience in growing or who are keen to learn about what we do. Please include as much detail about yourselves/experience as you can in your email.
|Preview host||Particularly interested in short term WWOOFers , however if the WWOOFer fits in well to the lifestyle, longer periods of stay could be accepted. The family has lived here for 12 years and the land consists of 56 acres and is used for sheep and 6 horses at present. On the farm we grow organic vegetables in season and make our own hay. Jan the main host is looking for help from WWOOFers in the stables occasionally, operating light machinery around the farm, strimming, using ride on mower, cutting wood. The vegetable patch requires maintenance as well as other various jobs around the property. As a rule we are only looking for female WWOOFers. Occasional woodland maintenance may be required. |
|Preview host||We're a family of 2 adults & 3 boys, although as the boys get older they spend less time at home. We live in a small village near Cambridge, so lots to explore nearby including the city of Cambridge, Cambridge University, and Ely Cathedral. We have a one acre garden which is part of the National Garden Scheme. The work is light garden work. If you choose to stay with us, we'd like you to work 4 to 6 hours a day (Monday through Friday). If you'd like to stay for more than one week, we'd like to build in a ‘Review after the First Week’ to see if the stay is working out for both parties. We live about one hour from Stansted Airport. If you're flying into England, this is the closest airport to us. |
|Preview host||2 ex-wwoofers and 18 year old daughter on 2 acre holding.Quiet, rural and secluded but not isolated.

|Preview host||We are an organic vegetable farm in the heart of Snowdonia, running a community supported agriculture project that feeds approximately 100 families. The farm is run by a Workers' Co-op and is in the process of applying permaculture design to site development, as well as diversifying our operations to include value-added food processing and a campsite. |
Accomodation is a bit basic, in an array of caravans and converted barns with compost toilets, but the views are spectacular! Plenty of opportunity here for skilling up in intensive vegetable production and enjoying the phenomenal natural beauty of North Wales.
|Preview host||We are a primarily a livestock farm with 4 Luing cows, 50 breeding ewes and 10 pigs. We also grow a small amount of vegetables. We have recently acquired an onsite butchery unit and hope to butcher our own lamb and pork to sell locally and at the market in Dornoch. We are going to start converting to organic production in 2018. |
|Preview host||We live in beautiful North Oxfordshire, on a farm with rolling countryside. We have 200 sheep, 3 dogs, 3 beehives and 10 free range chicken. |
|Preview host||Our Orchard is an uncertified biodynamic smallholding near Dartington in South Devon. We produce vegetables and fruit, and we have a few ducks and chickens. Much of the work is done by a dedicated team of volunteers who help out on mondays and thursdays during the growing season. All our produce is either eaten on site or given away and we are funded by individual donations. The site is hidden in a secluded valley but only 3 or 4 miles from Totnes and Buckfastliegh. This year we are constructing a small cob building and we're looking for extra help with this as well as with the regular garden work. For more info see our website. Please note that our facilities are basic. We have a compost toilet and an outdoor hot shower. We also have an outdoor kitchen and 12v solar for charging mobile phones but we dont have internet. The caravan's are pretty old and shabby, but we hope that the hospitality and good and plentiful food makes up for it. |
|Preview host||We have a smallholding in a small village at the foot of the North Pennines, 8 miles east of Penrith, Cumbria. The smallholding has a long history of being organically managed (though not currently certified) and offers the chance to learn about organic production of livestock, eggs, vegetables and fruit. |
We particularly welcome people for weekends or long weekends - but we can accommodate longer visits, depending on the time of year.
It is an ideal site for cycling and fell-walking. It is also easy to reach the Lake District and Hadrian’s Wall if you have your own transport.
We are looking for people to help prepare vegetable beds in spring, weeding and harvesting in the summer and autumn. Other jobs include maintenance of grass in the orchard and haymaking. You can also work with cows and hens and occasionally on fencing and dry stone walling.

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 place, where animals, birds, plants and humans all live in a natural, healthy and happy way. Our chickens, geese, ducks, guinea fowl and a turkey roam free all over the farm. We have milking goats. We have a Jersey cow with a calf and pigs. We are learning beekeeping. We grow organic vegetables and fruit and we have planted hundreds of trees. Our farm is developing in a happy organic and permaculture way. It forms the basis of our family business of writing and publishing books about using food as medicine. As a family we are firmly committed to producing natural organic food in a sustainable way. Our farm is an integral part of our business and an invaluable part of our research; the food we produce demonstrates the value of natural diet in health of humans, animals and the land. We will be 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. |
