|Preview host||- Rented property with some land as part of the rental (a paddock being developed in a forest garden), a lot of useless lawn and some half-wild shrubs. |
- The landlord is letting us a lot of liberty concerning the management of the land and is only concerned about 'righteousness' of the management. (mostly ‘invasive’ weed control)
- The work needed is at this stage mostly clearing and setting up : in some parts there is some shrub / tree / sapling control to be done, in some other parts vegetable beds and cultivable areas to be built or maintained, I have made a draft permaculture garden design for my paddock but this will be reviewed, and trees are being planted this winter. Lastly in some areas we can already apply some perma principles (water harvesting, gutters and tyres planters...)
- Although I have ticked every month for availability, Scotland can display some pretty rubbish winter weather, so we'll play by ear.
- Families with children aged 3 to 9 are welcomed during school holidays.
|Preview host||A beautiful valley in the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 39 acres, over 16 acres of woodland. |
We are a certified organic, small scale egg and chicken farm. We also have a small orchard and fish farm where we rear carp for the table. We're developing an education facility in the valley, as well as a Sepp Holzer Hugelkultur-inspired permaculture vegetable plot.
We are aiming to be as sustainable and self-sufficient as possible and eventually to farm completely fossil-fuel free. We are very interested in permaculture and how to apply these techniques to a commercial smallholding.
|Preview host||You will be accommodated in our cob house which we have recently built which is on a 14 acre smallholding with grazing rights on the abutting Greenham Common. We keep beef suckler cattle on the holding and common and have a quarter of an acre of vegetable garden with two polytunnels totalling 60 sq metres and numerous fruit trees. All are managed organically although we are not registered. We also keep a small number of chickens for eggs. |
Our aim is to be as self sufficient as possible for our two families by growing for 52 weeks of the year and preserving some of our seasonal surplus with the rest for sale.
Over the next couple of years we are planning to build a covered, outdoor, earthen, rocket fired kitchen , a near PassivHaus standard 20 sq m potting and seed shed with a rocket mass heater and a 30 sq m sunken polytunnel. We can offer a bit of gardening, food preservation, farming, eco-building and eco-heating according to your wishes and the time of year.
|Preview host||The estate has been in the family for over 100 years. The amenity woodlands round the main house are in the process of being converted into a 60 acre aboretum. All trees and shrubs are grown from hand collected seeds and cuttings. At present (due to lack of workers) spray has to be used but we want to stop this practice due to water courses etc. There are a host of activities that can be done from this part of Scotland of outstanding beauty and mild climate. WWOOFers can enter into other Estate operations such as work on the Horse Trials and other Estate work like fencing , road repairs , water works etc |
|Preview host||We are a relatively new smallholding in the Perthshire hills with self catering accomodation. We have geese, sheep and chickens as well as a young orchard and lots of grass. We are interested in growing and making nutritious, wholesome food while looking after and hopefully improving the land we work and live on. We have a particular interest in climate change and how to make us and our land more resilient to the changes. We are only 10 miles from Perth but quite remote with no local bus. We want to meet new people and share others enthusiasm about our planet. |
Please note we have a very limited internet connection.

We live in a very quiet and peaceful place, half an hour from the sea and Bodmin Moor is just up the road. Good internet connection. There is a website for anyone interested in looking at Tony's films and the making of the eco-house - tonyhillfilms.net
The house is under 'projects'. There are a number of woofers helping us in the film!
|Preview host||This is mainly a livestock holding 200 acres in all, and has been here,and been organic, for 31 years. WWOOFers should be prepared for livestock work. We have a pedigree herd of Blonde cattle, and a herd of Sussexes which are organic (70 head of cattle in all at present), as are the 3 sows and followers and 80 ewes. All our produce is sold through Farmers' Markets; so WWOOFers should be prepared for the farm to be even busier on Saturdays and Sundays. We are generally 'involved' in a lot of activities, including summer showing of the Blondes. |
We are unable to accept WWOOFers who smoke or who travel by air. Don't forget to bring wellies.
At times it will be appropriate for WWOOFers, as part of the skills exchange, to be part of the farm outside of their minimum hours. This has to do with the nature of livestock work.

|Preview host||Camphill Community Mourne Grange is an integrated therapeutic Community where international volunteers live and work alongside adults with special needs. |

The plot was formerly part of an organic market garden run by my partner and myself and has two polytunnels, one of which we 'landshare' with two local families. We need help maintaining, and in places rescuing, the plot and becoming more self-sufficient. Hours are flexible and helpers will work alone as well as with us.

I have livestock on the croft, hens and sheep, two friendly collie dogs, Jack and Fingal, and two outside cats, who will distract you in the garden. I am a relaxed timekeeper who enjoys having people around on the croft and although both rural and remote, there is a good social life within our friendly community. We all enjoy eating our own locally grown meat and locally caught shellfish and fish.
We have a variable and unpredictable climate, ranging from cold, wet and windy to hot and sunny sometimes within a day, so come prepared!

|Preview host||We grow specialty vegetables, beautiful salads, unusual herbs and edible flowers for chefs in London and Cambridge, and families in the local community. Our farm is run with heavy horses rather than with tractors. We are one of the only commercial horse powered farms in the country and are in the process of becoming organic and biodynamic certified. |
We welcome visitors who want to learn about sustainable farming through being part of a hard working, dynamic team. We prefer Wwoofers over the age of 21 who are motivated, independent and conscientious of others.

|Preview host||The farm is in a quiet glen approximately 5km from the small village of Glenelg in NW Scotland. Within the Glen are two of the best preserved Iron Age Brochs in mainland Britain which draw visitors all year round. We have two commercial polytunnels in which we grow a range of organic vegetables, predominantly salad leaves which are sold through local outlets. Assistance is required with all aspects of vegetable growing and harvesting throughout the season, from March to November. There is also a small coffee shop run from a vintage Showman’s wagon for which we also need help. |
