|Description || |
|We are a small privately owned estate near Perth. The 120 acres of grounds include garden, parkland and woodland. Work will involve helping in the 1.5 acre walled garden where we have formal borders, rose beds, historic orchard and vegetable garden. In recent years the garden has suffered from weather and lack of manpower and we are working towards seeing it in a much improved state by next summer. We grow a wide variety of vegetables in the garden from potatoes to beetroot and fennel. We use companion planting and our own compost and comfrey fertilizer. Work is also likely to involve clearing in the woodland. Over the winter work is ongoing to refurbish the historic Home Farm Byre on the estate which will launch in June 2014 as a wedding venue and cultural centre. Work in the grounds will be done with this in mind in terms of presenting the grounds in a suitable condition. ||View |
|Currently looking for an enthusiastic couple. Beautiful country house set in 30 acres of woodland and pasture. We have a large walled garden which is part formal garden and part vegetable garden.

We are only about 3/4 of a mile from the coastal village of Hopeman which is an easy walk from the house. We need enthusiastic helpers to help us keep our wonderful garden under control. Everything from weeding, planting, grass cutting, strimming, pruning, picking fruit and vegetables, some woodland work, and general help are needed, as is a good sense of humour! We also have a section of our stone wall needing to be re built so if you have wall building skills, we need you! Occasional care of chickens, ponies and dog required.

|Hidden away near the south Pembrokeshire coast we're living in the middle of a protected wildlife site; a classic slice of old farmland with hay meadows, wetland and woodland full of wildflowers and bird song. As well as looking after the wildlife interest, we also farm a small herd of beef cows, horses and bees. We've spent the seven years since we've been here building various interesting structures using traditional/ low impact techniques. |
We've had plenty of help from friends along the way but could now use some more regular assistance during the year to assist with a whole range of tasks; animal husbandry to wildflower seed harvesting, cob building to woodland management, improving veg production to fruit picking.
This year we're particularly keen to hear from people who have practical skills such as carpentry and stone masonry to help us finish off various building projects around the farm.
We’re a young family with two little ones, who may have diverted our energies a little in the last few years...

We have been here for the past 17 years and enjoy the self sufficiency challenge and lifestyle. We generate our electricity and heat our water (from our well) with solar power as far as this is possible in our climate! The work on our smallholding is seasonal and weather dependent; it includes help with livestock, gardening, land maintenance etc. Unfortunately, we are not a large enough farm to justify more than 2 Wwoofers at a time. |
To contact us please phone or email.

We are also home to Canalside Community Food, a thriving CSA scheme which provides organic fruit and veg to the local community.
Ideally we are looking for WWOOFers with some experience, but most importantly we'd like to hear from people specifically interested in what's going on here.
|We are on the shore of Lough Neagh near Aghalee village. We have a couple of canoes if you want to explore the lake. We have two acres of land, a small vegetable garden some poultry, a big dog and a small cat. |
Our house is heated solely by wood burning stoves with a solar panel providing the hot water, so we are in constant need of firewood meaning that there is lots of tasks to be done cutting and splitting wood.
For the vegetable garden we get compost from our neighbour farmer so assistance in shifting it is needed.
We also assist in maintaining two public amenity sites at Bartin's Bay and Derrymore Quay so in the summer there is help needed gathering litter and cutting hedges.

Work includes veg growing, conservation-type tidying, haymaking, animal care (sheep, pigs, geese, hens); orchard being taken over by brambles; firewooding needed (collecting, sawing, splitting, stacking). |
Main aim: to become as locally sustainable as possible. Local field beans instead of soya, pigs for ploughing and fertility, self-sufficient year-round in veg (except after poor summers, heigho).
I am involved in Transition Monmouth (Chair of the Food Group, started the Pig Group); WWOOFers with similar interests specially welcome.
Good English is essential for Health & Safety as this is a working farm, which I run single-handed; so on the whole more experienced wwoofers (of any age) are needed, with intelligent interest in land use and sustainability; but I am friendly and sociable, happy to chat and discuss anything.
Please note: no television, slow broadband, mobile signal up the lane. And Wwoof map is inaccurate!

Smoking outside only please. Hosts are vegetarian/vegan.
|10 miles from Aberdeen we have an extensive collection of waterfowl, in our lovely garden and also in large covered aviaries. We have young woodland with a few hens but it is principally being managed as a wildlife refuge but also an extension of the garden. Everything here revolves around the birds.

Ben and his partner Lorraine (Larry), and Ben’s Mother Tessa along with our volunteers and students work together to maintain and develop the land, livestock and a sustainable way of life.
We enjoy life on our 400 year old traditional Devon Farm and manage over 100 acres consisting of culm grassland, hay meadow, ponds and woodlands (43 acres), all worked by our shire horses. Our Woodlands provide a wonderful opportunity for preserving the time-honoured skills associated with traditional woodland management such as coppicing, charcoal burning and horse logging.
Modern techniques and home comforts are embraced but where possible the farm is run pretty much on a 1940s basis. We love eating our own food and our aim is to produce all our own meat and vegetables on the farm. Apart from the shire horses, we have Ruby Red Devon cattle, Oxford, Sandy and Black pigs, chickens and ducks.
|Large Victorian house in truly idyllic setting owned & run by a charity Pause Rewind & Play (800491). Half-acre of garden, orchard & woodland situated in the Lake District National Park next to Loweswater lake. Our main purpose is to provide self-catering residential accommodation for families and children in need. |
We ONLY take Wwoofers at our 'Maintenance Week' events, 2 or 3 times a year when the house is not otherwise being used. We CANNOT guarantee to respond to inquiries from Wwoofers who make requests to come at other times.
NEXT MAINTENANCE EVENT: Wooding weekend 8 - 11 Nov. With bonfire party beside the lake!
Typical work we need help with:
woodland management and supply of fuel for woodburners & open fires
dry stone walling
fruit picking & processing and honey processing in season (when crops are good)
repairs to fabric inside and out (eg windows)
We are hoping to install a heat exchanger using the warmth of the water in the lake.
