|Description || |
|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 occasionally weaner pigs. |
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.
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 a small wind turbine to erect but have not yet had the time. We have recently completed our first polytunnel (polycrub) to extend the growing season.
|Situated on the outskirts of Lossiemouth, a small coastal town in Moray Scotland. It's twenty minute walk into Lossiemouth and to the beach. Work will be helping with the every day running of the small holding, planting, weeding, harvesting and taking the produce to market. There will be help needed to make preserves from the excess produce, these will then be sold on the market. I also have some building projects. I have a shed to put up and a poly-tunnel. Having worked and managed an Organic farm, up to the year 2010. I have now set up this new project. I currently provide vegetable boxes from June to December and run a market stall through these months ||View |
|We have around thirty acres of organic field scale vegetables supplying pubs /shops /delis /restaurants/CSAs/other box schemes and farmers markets as well as a thriving veg hut on the farm .We aim to demonstrate good organic practice but also are increasingly looking at innovative new growing techniques such as no-dig and lean -farm principles . |
We are a friendly team of growers willing to share our extensive skills ....everybody welcome but wwoofers preferring to stay for longer periods are particularly welcome ....
The farm has many attractions including a cooperatively owned wind and solar farm ..the largest in the uk as well as an organic dairy herd. A mental health charity called Root and Branch offering supported gardening blacksmithing and woodwork as well as a green burial site and wonderful countryside overlooking the White Horse hill at Uffington as well as proximity to Oxford /Bristol /Bath and London for excursions by bus and train .
With swimming in the nearby Thames if things get too hot after a day in the field !
|There are two of us, a retired art teacher/artist and youth worker,with a dog and four cats, living in our seaside house (beach 200m) with garden and allotment for 12 years. Have practised 100% organic gardening and permaculture for about 7 years. I have a permaculture design course qualification so can teach basic permaculture. We grow a multitude of veg and fruit and herbs, and keep chickens. We are active and sociable and accustomed to living and working with other people in a variety of situations and would expect WWOOFers to live as family, helping with washing up after meals, etc. Need help to maintain the garden and allotment, with harvesting and conserving the produce, sowing and planting, composting and looking after the chickens. |
We do all our own cooking, can teach baking, all vegetarian cookery, jam making, wine making, dehydration. Aim is for as much self sufficiency as possible. For free time, artists studio to share, beach, countryside, friendship, bikes.
Sorry, only room for one Wwoofer at a time.
|We are (almost) self-sufficient in vegetables, growing for our family for 20 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 around 1 full day off per week. We like having people here, have become friends with some WWOOFers and keep in touch with them. Our volunteers need to be 'self-starters' who don't require too much attention or looking-after. Accommodation is camping in the summer or a bedroom in the house other times. The sea is 15 minutes walk away - WWOOFers often go to the beach in the afternoon. We are an artist & web designer with twin sons, age 21, who were home-educated until recently and are now at University (so only here in Summer). We are trained and experienced in use of natural medicines and therapies. Also need help with carpentry (woodwork), electrical work, chainsawing and chopping firewood & 2 stroke engine maintenance. Have wired internet & also WiFi (but only by arrangement). ||View |
| This smallholding is in a beautiful secluded spot near a loch (lake) hills and woods in the Highlands of Scotland. |
There is a caravan available or bedrooms in the house. Use of bathroom and kitchen in the house - shared cooking arrangements. Space for car or campervan parking.
Work includes fencing, outbuilding repairs, creation of compost heaps, sawing logs for the fire, painting doors and windowframes, feeding animals, gardening, growing vegetables, weeding etc
Cottage has rayburn stove and an open fire for heating. Washing machine available.
I have a dog and 2 horses.
Great area for birdlife-- near RSPB red kite feeding centre. Wildlife includes roe deer, pine marten, badgers and foxes. Dolphins and seals are not far away in the Moray Firth and of course the Loch Ness Monster in Loch Ness!
Lots of good hikes in the area from a few hours to a few days. Also its a good area for mountainbiking and fishing.
The cottage feels far from civilisation, but getting to Inverness only takes 30 mins.
I look forward to hearing from you.
|This is a 17 acre croft in a glen on the west of Skye. 1 acre coniferous woodland and a native-wooded burn, 4 cows and followers, hens; 2 working collies. Small vegetable patch and fruit bushes gone to the dogs, Lots of maintenance to be done and help needed with woodlogging; fencing; muck clearing & spreading; grass- bracken-creeping thistle- docken-rush -cutting and clearing; old tractor maintenance (Ford 3600), even restoration. Not all this is urgent or has to be done at once: depends on the season, weather, time available and the skills of both host and WWOOFers. Accommodation twin room and double room. Help needed in the kitchen. You should be fairly self-sufficient in outlook as you might find it a bit quiet. To help you appreciate life here wwoofers should be able to make their own way to the croft. Enthusiastic wwoofers welcome. ||View |
|We are a couple, now in our 60s, who have a 12acre croft on the north west coast of Skye. We have been growing trees for 16 years and now have a small woodland. We have vegetable beds and several polytunnels . We require help particularly between April and September as the growing season is short and intense. Jobs are generally of a horticultural nature but can include building and conservation work The weather is very unpredictable and potential volunteers must be prepared for the possibility of cold wet conditions,warm, waterproof clothes and footwear are essential. Our accommodation consists of rooms in our house and we welcome people who will appreciate privacy and independence. It is best to contact us by telephone in the evenings. ||View |
|3 acres of fruit, vegetables, nuts, rough pasture, greenhouses, herb garden and young woodland area. Large scale rainwater collection and solar heating systems.

|Hedge Monkey is 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 near Emley Moor and take them to the Peak District to forage on heather in July/August.
I would like help creating a terrace for a top bar hive apiary project 15 min bike ride East by the river Calder ; a good place for swimming if it's not been raining for days.
Beekeeping and growing food are organic and biodynamic activities.
Help with a new Allotment plot for herbs and bee friendly plants would be appreciated. There are tadpoles in the pond, built last year, and hedgehogs nearby. I have a dog who is 8 and a partially sighted cat aged 12.
I can offer guidance on growing food, beekeeping, gathering wild food/medicine, outdoor cooking and generally getting by without owning land. A large spare caravan with gas heating/electric/mini kitchen could accommodate a couple or up to two good friends sharing.
|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.

|We are a family of 4 (of which 2 young people aged 18 & 20, live here part time) 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. Other interests include sustainable living, swimming, local football, yoga, Non Violent Communication, family life and practicing French, Welsh & German whenever possible. ||View |
|We live on a five acre croft (small holding) in a small village on the Isle of Skye. |
We are a family of; husband and wife John and Lis, 88 year old father and teenage son. We are a non smoking household.
We keep a flock of Hebridean sheep which we hand shear to provide knitting wool, two hives of bees, hens and an elderly cat. There is a vegetable garden, fruit bushes and trees and a polytunnel.
We would love some help to cut peats for winter fuel, making hay, weeding, harvesting and general help in the vegetable garden and occasional help to gather/shear/ dose the sheep. There may also be an opportunity to do some beekeeping if interested.
Accomodation is either in a small touring caravan or in the upstairs of the workshed which is a nice space with a double bed. Both have use of the bathroom in the house. We eat a varied diet of meat and vegetarian food and any help in the kitchen is very welcome!
We love playing traditional music with friends.
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.
|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.

|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 and five hens - 2 black rocks and 3 bluebells.
|We're a family with a large allotment, looking for WOOFERS who are enthusiastic, hard working and who love nature. Some experience of growing is great but not essential as we are experienced allotmenters - more important is being friendly, hard-working, taking initiative and willingness to learn and take instruction. We are also really willing to learn from you too. Other WOOF hosts have a plot next to us so there's possibility of a longer stay. |
We are in SW London -just 20 minute tube ride from Central London and all the main attractions, so after a hard day's work you can enjoy all that London has to offer!
Our allotment has all the usual tasks - weeding, digging, etc.. there may be opportunity for other projects like building a willow den, tree-house etc... For your stay to be a happy one, you must be willing to be part of our household with children, a dog and cat, including sharing chores / cooking. You will have your own room during your stay and be welcomed as part of our family.
|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 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.
|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!
|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.
|Our smallholding, of 22 acres, is in a beautiful rural setting, we grow vegetables on about an acre, and have a polytunnel. 9 acres are forested and sometimes needs maintenance/planting. small garden area, roughland that needs strimming, weeding. Some fencing sometimes required, training can be given for this and the forestry work. Some general maintenance would be required. We have a clutch of hens. |
We can provide 2 bedrooms or a large shared bedroom for friends coming together. We can provide use of an artists studio/workshop for creatives, also land if you are land artists, sculptors, so artists welcome. Wwoofers would be treated like family, or can keep to themselves if that is what they want, as with the hours worked and length of stay, we are flexible. We like to have wwoofing couples or pairs of friends, because we are isolated, then WWOOFERS have someone to share thier free time with.
|We are a smallholding, growing veg and fruit, with a 16 acre croft a 5 minute walk from our house. A small fenced area of our croft is used for veg beds and some fruit bushes. There is some coppice birch and hazel woodland on our croft, which is used for fuel. We are planting more trees with deer protection. We have 2 horses. Work on the croft includes drainage work to improve grazing. |

We are flexible about the days and times and the kind of contribution you might make - it might even be sewing or cooking! There is room for anyone who wants to contribute.
|I love my garden, created over the past 15 years from the corner of a field. In the wildlife pond, there are lots of tadpoles and a couple of newts! |
The garden has vegetable and fruit beds, a polytunnel, a zig zagging flower bed, a separate herb garden, a couple of damson trees and an uncooperative apple tree. A hedge of indigenous species forms the southern field boundary.
It also has a couple of chairs and a hammock to sit and enjoy it all plus the woodland and open valley views.
I have a flower garden at the front of the house with moss lawn and hedges.
The village, set in open countryside, is one long row of houses on a hillside, left when the colliery and housing were demolished in the 1960's.
On the site of the old colliery have a neighbourhood nature reserve and a Durham Wildlife Reserve towards the head of the valley. We're a few miles from Weardale, Durham City and 15 miles from Newcastle/Gateshead.

We can offer a range of experiences depending on season, from feeding cattle to clearing rhododendrons. We have 65 Luing x Limousin cattle and 40 Jacob sheep plus Kune Kune pigs and ponies but our main business is cattle farming and red deer stalking.

If you're sociable and prepared to muck in and don't mind being 17 miles away from the only shop, this could be the place for you….. Because of our remote location and lack of public transport, a driving licence is essential. ||View |

We are situated in a rural area, the closest neighbours being half a mile in either direction.
Although it is a small-holding, being 99 acres, the land is let out to a sheep farmer. This means the Wwoofer has all that space, and beyond, to go for a lovely country walk!
The work is mainly in the garden. At the moment there is a reclamation programme going on. It has been neglected for various reasons.
There is work in the birch woods:-
Cutting gorse or undergrowth to make pathways
Cutting bracken (if the Wwoofer is happy to do so)
Painting farm gates and doors

|We can now host WWOOFers who would enjoy staying with us for about a month to start with if the first week works out well, and who would appreciate low pressure amounts of work, with some leisure time for themselves. We are both over 60 and can't keep up with the work on the land. So we need someone who can get on with things without too much supervision much of the time. |
We live in a hilly wooded area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB), with an orchard, paddock, wood and family vegetable patch. We are situated on top of a hill with fabulous views.
Work here is chiefly maintenance - clearing brambles, trimming and laying hedges, cutting grass, weeding and watering the vegetable patch, pruning fruit trees, bonfires etc.
At certain times of the year we will be harvesting and chopping timber for log burners from our own wood.
We also have plans to create new raised beds for vegetables and build a compost loo. Once we have the place more under control, we may have more creative projects.

Our family is myself, my husband a Police Officer and my son age 15 who is keen fisherman. My husband loves his farm ride on toys! Quad, ride on lawn mowers heaps of power tools.
|We live on Pennard Ridge, the Somerset levels below. Glastonbury Tor due west and the well known pop festival close by. Wells and Shepton Mallet also, Frome and Bruton within easy reach. Bath/Bristol is 20/25 miles north. |
Our land comprises orchard, woodland and garden. Trying to extend the garden, which needs constant attention, with vegetables, fruit and 2 small greenhouses. We have hens. There is management of the old orchard, firewood, general maintenance and some building work also to be tackled. Also some housework is much appreciated!
We prefer to have two people, or a couple, but, if you are self contained - it's worth a try, We always need help. However, as our house is small, in the evening we will ask you to give us space. We have 3 boys aged 14, 9 and 8. There is another room with wi-fi in an adjoining building, which can be used by our helpers.
Camp or stay in a caravan, sometimes in house. Bicycles available. There are good walks around and many sites of interest to visit.
|This is an old manse in its own grounds (3.5 acres) one mile from the sea. We do B&B and self catering (www.balcraggiehouse.co.uk) and we look after cultural study groups from time to time. Our walled garden is cultivated with two poly tunnels, vegetable patch, raised beds and orchard. ||View |
|We are presently living in temporary accommodation 5 miles from Baldarroch and will not be taking WWOOFers until further notice. |
We will be building a house on our farm within the next 18 months but will be starting to create our new garden and grounds including a Lochside and woodland walk when we will most likely be taking WWOOFers again.
There may also be work on the farm maintaining woodland and hedges.
WWOOFers should have an interest in the outdoors, wildlife and wild animal management.
Familiarity with machinery (chainsaws if qualified) mowers, tractors will be a benefit.
Work is as varied as possible from day to day.
|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.
