|Description || |
|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 are an elderly (but lively-minded couple) living in a hamlet situated in an exceptionally beautiful part of England. |
We have a collie-cross dog and a few hens. We grow a wide range of vegetables and fruit for our own use and to supply neighbours, relatives and friends. We also sell some produce at a nearby market.
As the work is so labour intensive and we are getting old, we really appreciate help from wwoofers. The work can be tedious (hand weeding), mucky (spreading manure), heavy (pushing a rotavator) and very interesting (if you get a thrill from seeing things grow).
We also own a rather neglected small wood about three miles from the house but we only accept help with sawing and logging from people who really know what they're doing and can prove they are chain-saw competent. Any WWOOFers who meet this criteria are especially 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 are a former dairy farm, now a DIY livery yard with around 28 horses. We are looking for someone to assist with the garden, our own animals (not the horses) and general handiwork around the farm. The sort of jobs you might be doing are: looking after all the poultry, cleaning out the aviaries and basic gardening. Also day-to-day jobs around the farm such as sweeping and clearing debris off tracks, maybe mending any fences the horses have broken, repainting outside walls or creosoting wooden buildings and keeping the farmyard tidy. Also helping with the straw harvests. |
There is usually an interesting outside project such as relaying an old brick path, hard landscaping or improving animal housing or creatingna new garden feature.
There is no smoking allowed in house or around farm buildings.
|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 30 years, providing ourselves with most of the vegetables and fruit we need. We make our own country wines and beer, jam, and pickles - 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, including 4 black lambs! and 6 (very friendly) hens.
If you would like to camp there are lovely streamside pitches with fireplaces.
The work might include gardening,cutting and splitting firewood, coppicing, path-building, bridge-building, fencing or stonewalling. We are happy to share our skills!
|We are a farming couple in our 40's with two boys aged 10 & 11 who have recently taken on the farm tenancy of the farm, part of the renowned Dartington Hall Trust just outside Totnes in beautiful South Devon. |
We have farmed organically for 15 years prior to arriving at Dartington both in Cumbria and Wiltshire and have great plans to renew and enhance the farm as an innovative, low carbon and environmentally sustainable holding.
Dairy will be the farms primary enterprise both Jersey cows and Anglo nubian Goats, but we have beef, sheep and arable as well.
Other planned projects include the development of a Care Farm, education centre, construction of an small Eco hut, on farm art work and on farm processing.
|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
|Co-operative business established on 4 core principles of sustainable agriculture, equitable employment, workplace spirituality and fair trade. We have 2.5 acres of glasshouses, growing organic vegetables to serve our box scheme and farm shop. What we can't grow on site, we buy as locally as possible. We aim to supply local food for local people. Find out more at our website and facebook page. We are based in the Yorkshire Dales - very good for walking, caving and other outdoor activities. |
|We are located in an idyllic setting where we aim to live in harmony with our surroundings, the local wildlife and our animals (Skye the border collie, Lottie the Jack Russell , 20 or so free-range chickens and flock rare-breed of 8 sheep). 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 past few 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. 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 are a traditional 80 acre Welsh grassland and livestock farm. We keep Sheep, British Toggenburg goats, Welsh Cobs and Mountain Ponies. |
There are gardens and extensive recently planted woodland walks on the farm which need maintaining! We plan to re-create a traditional farm orchard and large vegetable garden; other projects include rebuilding/converting our old farm buildings for humans, clearing ponds, creating a large new pond for water conservation/setting up a water wheel...
We also run a small Waterwell and Geothermal Well Drilling Company from the farm. Alison is a water diviner.

|We are situated on the Black Isle just north of Inverness. |
We have an acre of garden and woodland with seasonal streams , lawn and large flower beds.
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.

Cooking facilities are available in the flat and meals would be taken either with us or groceries provided after discussion with our volunteer.
|I am a tenant on a beautiful farm in the Lake District. I share the farm (land and barns) with a farming family, and I earn my bread-and-butter by working for publishers, by photography, and occasional B&B guests. I have about an acre of land on which I grow vegetables and fruit. It has become terribly neglected and I would like some help in restoring it to full use. I need volunteers who are strong and fit and who can do lots of digging and weeding. I also have small garden areas around the house which need tending too, and some very independent, happy hens who like attention, and there are sometimes small jobs indoors that I might need help with. ||View |

It has its own washbasin in the room and a loo next door. The bathroom is opposite. |
The hosts have 4 children under the age of 12, but do not expect any childcare help as grandparents live next door.
|We have 11 hectares and are set in an historic landscape at 220m. |
The small holding's focus is to maintain and enhance the already good bio-diversity. We have species rich grass land, wetland, woodland, hedges, gardens and a small amount of arable.
We are also restoring the original 19th century croft cottage using traditional and ecological techniques.
We have a small flock of alpacas, hens, 2 geese and a dog. Work will be on any or all of these.
Accommodation is with us in our self-built ecological house. WWoofer has the use of own room with double bed. There is only one room.
We live as sustainably as possible and would welcome any one who would like to do the same and is prepared to work hard. Particularly welcome local weekend volunteers, especially if they became regulars even if only for a day.
You need to be happy to work on your own, be reasonably strong and fit.
|Our beautiful home sits in an acre of grounds surrounded by countryside two miles north of Aboyne in Aberdeenshire. We have extensive gardens, a vegetable plot with raised beds, a large polytunnel with hydroponics, greenhouse, chickens, bee hives, a cat and a hot tub. We grow a lot of our own vegetables and have fruit trees and soft fruit bushes. We would love you to come and stay with us and help us out with some projects. |
We will provide all your meals and can introduce you to 'juicing' if you like. We can teach you about gardening, vegetable growing and show you how hydroponics works and may have small scale construction projects for you to get involved with. We also have a good knowledge of local flora and fauna which we will be happy to share with you. Simon is a yoga teacher and you are welcome to join him each morning for a free class.
|We are just setting up our small holding. Our main income is horse logging and sustainable woodland management. We own five horses that we use for working in the woodlands and to manage our grazing. We have chickens and are growing our own veg with a bit of surplus for sale. We are in the stages of building it all up, so for now we will need help with a lot of different things. Help with the horses, building up a poly tunnel, digging the garden, landscaping our bank down to the river, renovation work on a lot of our sheds and barns, fire wood processing, building work. We would like to build a compost toilet and set up a woodland workshop on the land. |
We have just taken on a woodlot, which we rent. It will require lots of handwork to look after. We will produce and sell firewood and charcoal.
We are planning to run courses on yurt building, spoon carving and horse logging.
