|A small livestock farm set in a remote village location. We have pigs, sheep, cattle and poultry. We farm as a family, with everything that we produce being sold at farmers markets, directly to the end consumer. The farm is still developing having started from bare land. This means that whilst rearing and caring for livestock we are also fencing, planting hedges and building shelters. We enjoy what we do and are happy to share this life with people who want to learn and take part in the process. ||View |

|Set in the heart of beautiful Glenhinnisdal in the Trotternish area of the Isle of Skye, here is our home and increasingly our business. As well as operating as a B&B in the summer months we also grow most of our own vegetables and salads and enjoy crops from fruit bushes and trees. We have flocks of chickens, ducks and guinea fowl. As well as growing and rearing for our own needs, our guests can also discover, possibly for the first time, the fantastic taste, smell and colours of home grown produce usually plucked fresh from the ground, tree, bush....or from underneath our free range chickens and ducks! At the same time many come to appreciate the benefits of smallscale production possibly even encouraging them to be more supportive of such local producers when they return home. |
Because of our very rural location and not much 'social life' close by, we are particularly suited to couples.
|We are based in a Georgian/Edwardian period home, which is a foundation for profound learning. We host groups that are learning personal development/yoga/meditation/gongs/drums/ etc. |
Based on a small estate, there is a Victorian walled garden, which is being developed over time into being an oasis of food production and wildlife haven. We have inherited a long term neglected garden, much of the work this year is restoration as well as trying to build new areas and grow new things in a more natural, sustainable and friendly manner. We consider this to be year 1 in a long and exciting project.
There are expanses of woodland, river and meadows to spend free time, sometimes you may even be working here. There is a Victorian period farm that has a delightful kitchen garden, a formal garden, acres of nature trails and farm animals to care for. As we are aiming to be fully self sustainable we have commissioned to be built 3 anaerobic digesters to produce electricity and heat for ourselves so we can go off grid.
|A lovely Highland property with large walled garden and policy badly in need of help to contain a summer of heavy growth - i.e strimming, weeding, lifting plants and general maintenance work on walls etc. |
We are 3 miles from Nairn and 15 miles from Inverness. Suggestion is that they would stay in a cottage On wet days would be happy if they could help with decoration in the house.
We have a working farm and other people on the property so they would not be along.
|Just under 3 acres of land: a mixture of grass, protected woodland and a stream. We have been in this beautiful location since March 2009. We have put up a polytunnel, have a small fruit area and are creating further vegetable beds outside the polytunnel. Plans are to keep chickens and ducks; build a clay oven; constuct a compost toilet; and to give others the opportunity to experience this very special place through bed and breakfast and retreat breaks. We also have a large barn in need of restoration work. A variety of help required - looking after the vegetable garden; fencing chicken run; clearing brambles; cutting and storing fallen wood; restoring lime plasterwork; decorating. Catering is largely vegetarian, with some fish and white meat. Interests: walking; bird-watching; 5 Rhythms Dance; BioDanza; photography; yoga; Qi Gung. |
Accommodation is available in the house, except during the summer months when we are very busy with B&B guests, and WWOOFers need to be prepared to camp (tent provided)i.
thanksfor your interest.This is a small "farm" of 52 acres just north of Dartmoor,that is becoming a working nature reserve.It's a place of peace and beauty,a secluded mixture of Culm grassland,oak woods, flower rich meadow,diverse in habitat and species, with stunning views of Dartmoor .
I am looking for hardworking self reliant people,with a sense of humour,who enjoy thinking outside the box. The land is 4 miles from the nearest town. VERY quiet,with no neighbours. The accommodation is VERY simple.There is a room in the cottage,4 miles away, and on the land,there are a couple of caravans with gas and leisure batteries,so limited 12v electricity for lights radio phone ,computer etc. Tents are available if you would like to use them too. Carpentry or mechanical skills would be particularly useful..
Longterm aims are to have workshops and classes,and find suitable people to sustainably manage and utilise the potential of the land with compatible projects.
|We are an ancient and beautiful property in West Wales, near the coast which I purchased and moved to in August of this year. There's the main farm house, a converted barn, some stables, 10 acres, a large overgrown vegetable patch, a retired mill and millhouse, a derelict mill pond, some woodland wilderness and about 10 acres of beautiful grazing and hedgerows. |
A lot of work is needed here to clear and make woodland gardens, retrieve the vegetable patch and all of that.
I have installed a biomass boiler,which is timber fuelled, so woodland management is also going to be vital. Big plans, and we're right at the beginning. I live here on my own , well with my spaniel Tara and Max the cat. Mario, a friend, lives in the barn for a few months.
|Experienced growers setting up new site in beautiful surroundings, nr chippie, beach, pubs as well as a market town centre, all walkable. We are following our pioneering work in Manchester on urban food supply with a model for "over the gate" sales to the population of a smaller settlement. |
We are interested in durable and productive food systems that can function with higher energy costs, feed our high population and still be commercially viable now. We are not permaculturists or hobby farmers but we do look forward to oil at $200/barrel.
Those interested in setting up new horticulture units are particularly welcome.
|We live in an beautiful old house with 5 acres of woodland and garden.We grow vegetables both in and outdoor. We are 1 mile from the village of Claudy, and 9 miles from the city of Londonderry, in the Sperrin Mountains. ||View |
|Large family house and garden with vegetable patch, flower beds, lawn, a few fields and woodland. We have 3 dogs and 2 hens. Help needed with all aspects of gardening, weeding, pruning, digging etc. Occasional indoor jobs such as painting etc if weather very bad. ||View |
| Our Family has had this house since it was built in 1960 as a holiday home. It is a timber house built on a hill overlooking the Sea to The Isle of Skye and also looks down the Sound of Sleat to Ardnamurchan Point and The Small Isles, |
The House is situated in a large Highland Garden of 5 acres. We are now looking for wwoofers to work in the garden, but also to hopefully stay longer and occasionally "hold the fort". Help out with house-keeping, cooking, change-overs at The Green House, (a little Luxury Cabin in the south end of the Garden). and help look after 2 cats & a dog.
It is a beautiful area steeped in history from the Brochs built about 300 BC, Gavin Maxwell's Ring of Bright Water at Camusfearna, & the World's oldest car ferry, Skye Ferry. Wwooffers must be able to enjoy a glass of wine and eat seafood if vegetarian! We would prefer people to be late 20's or older ,have GOOD english and to stay for a minimum of 1-2 months.
|We live in the Scottish borders in an isolated place near the B 709, 6 miles south of Innerleithen. |
We have 2 ponies 3 geese 5 ducks about 40 hens and 2 dogs. We have a poly tunnel for vegetable growing, and other patches of garden for fruit and flowers.
We need help for the general range of activities and it would be really good if the WWOOFER has some basic carpentry skills.
We're a fairly old couple (seventies) but very fit. My husband plays league cricket in the summer and I take the dogs for strenuous walks although not as strenuous as digging the garden and carrying water.
We are vegetarians but eat fish and at this time of year eat a lot from what we grow although the veg season has barely started.
I'm very interested in 'companion planting' and am open to all ethically acceptable ideas.
We have a neighbour 2 miles nearer civilisation and she would be keen to share you! She is an organic gardener and her entire set up is more organised than ours.
|Ex-wwoof ourselves, we are a young Dutch couple with two cats and 5 chickens trying to be self-sufficient. We have a small piece of land where we grow fruit and vegetables. |
We're located in Central Scotland, but still pretty isolated and lovely views all around. The nearest public transport is 5 miles away, so we will pick you up. Please bring a warm jumper, because it can be very windy at times!
We need help maintaining the vegetable beds and transforming the back garden. We make our own bread, wine, beer and jam from our own produce or picked from the wild. Any recipe ideas are more than welcome!
On your days off you could go to Edinburgh and Glasgow or you can go hill walking, mountain biking or just relaxing.
Accommodation is a double bed in our spare bedroom, so it would suit either a couple or one wwoof-er. We are not vegetarians, but we can provide vegetarian/vegan/glutenfree meals. We prefer non-smokers. Minimum age 20.
We welcome helpers in the months May until October.
|We have a large rambling house and garden with lots of woodland. We have chickens and dogs. We need help in the garden tidying, planting hedges, weeding and general maintenance. We also run a bed and breakfast with which we sometimes need help. We can provide two adjoining bedrooms with shared bathroom. There is also a lounge with TV which you can use. ||View |
| A rural, peaceful, off grid, 13 acre smallholding in very beautiful west Cornwall, using permacultural methods to manage woodland, vegetable growing, orchard, soft fruit, willow coppicing, bee keeping, chicken keeping and forest gardening. An extended family live here with two teenage children, two dogs and lots of birds - plus the odd badger and fox! Lots of jobs - bracken and bramble clearance, pruning, harvesting, weeding, mulching, chicken care and chipping barrowing! We're off grid, so live a simple life, and live happily within the limits of our own energy and harvested water. We offer a simple lunch for half a day's work; the afternoon is yours, and you buy and cook your own breakfast and evening meal. We do ask you to cook vegetarian food only. We're a half an hour walk away from the main road bus route into Penzance and up north, and a fifteen minute cycle ride to the main line train station. Look forward to welcoming you! ||View |
|We have an 11 acre upland holding, surrounded by fields and woodland on the edge of the wild moorlands of the ancient Cambrian Mountains. |
We have been gardening organically here for over 35 years, providing ourselves with most of the vegetables and fruit we need. We make our own wine and beer and jam and bake our own bread.
We have a well-established apiary - our bees make wonderful honey which we sell locally. We have a few sheep and 7 (very friendly) hens.
If you would like to camp there are lovely stream-side pitches with fireplaces.
The work might include gardening, carrying and cutting and splitting firewood, coppicing, path-building, bridge-building, fencing, stonewalling, painting sheds, and cooking.
|The Trust is a retired dairy farm on the outskirts of Sheffield that has been developed as a Care Farm by two families and the barns converted into our homes. There is also a young man renting the farmhouse who works on the farm. |
We have a small number of animals: 2 goats, 3 sheep, poultry and bees. We are also growing food to sell locally and there is a small orchard.
We have volunteers from the local area and also support a small number of adults with learning disabilities to take part in work on the farm.
We are surrounded by beautiful countryside with some lovely walks but still close enough to Stocksbridge or Sheffield so not completely remote.
|We are a commercial market garden with the Soil Association symbol and although small grow a wide variety of vegetables, herbs and fruit, delivering veg boxes to the local area. I specialise in mixed salad bags containing a unique variety of herbs and salad crops, grown mostly in polytunnels. I also produce a wide variety of herbs of all kinds as fresh herbs and potted plants, sold at local plant sales. The work here is always varied and you will learn a wide variety of skills. |
My background is in Soil Science and I have been growing organically for over 25 years, and understand the scientific basis of organic methods. Recycling plant nutrients is central to this and I make and use a variety of composts including worm compost, comfrey liquid, leaf mould etc and raise all plants with my own potting compost (no peat) from this recycling process.
|We are a young family farming 55 green hilly acres in herefordshire. We have 50 milk goats and their young and sell raw milk and cheese. We also often have a pig or 2. We look for help with animal care hay making, gardening and building projects. We have a converted truck and a yurt for accomodation and particularly look for couples who can be fairly independent whilst not helping us. ||View |
|Our large house is set in the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, made famous by 19th century landscape painter John Constable. Also one of the driest areas of the UK! Our 5 acres consist of part walled vegetable and fruit gardens, polytunnel, a small apple orchard, flower garden, lawns - plus a field and a small area of woodland. Much of the salad and vegetable crops are grown in raised beds. We keep chickens and ducks for eggs, a few sheep and occasional rare breed pigs. We have three cats. We only accept non-smokers. |
Stays longer than 4 weeks may be possible outside summer months.
|The Urb Farm is a grassroots community enterprise developing local food growing and healthy eating in an urban environment. It builds on work begun in partnership with Food Train another local charity. Together, in this project, we seek to explore a sustainable local alternative to the current food system and provide opportunities for community learning and health improvement, particularly for disadvantaged people. |
On a 2½ acre site, leased from the Town Council, we are developing:
• A place for growing: a highly productive garden including a commercial growing area, training garden and series of exhibition areas
• A place for learning: an outdoor classroom where people from all walks of life can re-connect with the land and learn the skills and benefits of growing food, exercise and healthy eating
• A place for meeting where the community can meet and eat
• A place for sharing: a flagship project that shares its produce and approach with the local and wider community
Would suit long-term WWOOFERS
|We run a box scheme delivering 160 boxes per week and have our own small farm shop crammed with wholefood goodies. |

Mike is a gardener by profession and has almost finished landscaping and planting our one acre decorative garden to his own design. Sue is passionate about growing and preserving, vegetables, herbs and fruit. The productive gardens, 2 polytunnels and compost heaps are at the heart of the holding. We have a natural pond bursting with life and have planted many trees, shrubs and hedges over the years. |
Sue runs a small business at home ..TEA on the WAY (look it up on facebook) and the garden is always open to for visitors to look round. In addition we open the garden for charity as part of the National Garden Scheme. We welcome wwoofers of all ages and experience but they must have a genuine interest in sharing and learning about an organic and environmentally sustainable lifestyle.

We have been here 7 years and have transformed our garden. We have reclaimed the vegetable/fruit garden, created a herb garden, generate our own compost, and removed shrubs and bushes which were in the wrong place. We have also planted a small orchard. We try to strike a balance between keeping things under control and minimum interference. We are keen to apply organic principles whilst recycling what we don't need.

|I started converting my two acre field into a medicinal herb garden in 2005. I am interested in the practical use of these herbs and make ointments, tinctures, teas, face creams and bath products. I occasionally run courses in making remedies for personal use and give talks on the subject. I have regular meetings for plant spirit journeying. I have a yurt and a round house and a caravan in the field with basic facilities. Currently I live in the roundhouse myself, and have compost toilets and outdoor shower. I use a caravan as kitchen in the summer and my workshop doubles up as kitchen in the winter. I need help with the plants, which I sell in pots at Stroud Farmers Market and also need help creating the garden. There would also be an opportunity to learn about making the products. I also have a small wood which I intend to work in this summer. Working here is an opportunity to learn about the uses of the herbs, and to explore the Cotswolds. |

Food and meals are provided. Self catering can be achieved on the BBQ or on a small stove in the current agricultural building - as we are currently building a kitchen on the site may not be ready until June.
|We are a busy family farm on the west coast of Scotland. We have 3000 hens, 60 cows, a few sheep, a couple of pigs, farm collie dogs, a shetland pony and 4 children aged 7,6,5 and 3. We grow potatoes, carrots, turnips, cabbages and lots of other vegetables and cut flowers. |
The work on the farm varies with the seasons, however there is always egg collecting. Work with the plants, ranges from sowing and planting to weeding and harvesting, we would never expect a wwoofer to weed for 5 hours a day and try to vary the jobs to keep them interesting. Other jobs may include cleaning out hen houses, painting sheds or barns, feeding lambs and calves, tidying the yard, gardening, cutting and bunching flowers.
You will live in our home with the family, we have a spare guest room. Lunches and tea/dinner are with the family. You will have your own living room where you will have breakfast.
We welcome anyone enthusiastic and willing to learn and work with us.
