Description
Hello,Now Tony and I are in our second year as WWOOF hosts we have hosted 5 fantastic sets of WWOOFers or students in 2018 and hope they learned and enjoyed from us too. Although we were active farmers we now only have a few chickens, a large organic vegetable garden and coppiced woodland. A neighbor rents the grassland.Tony is the mechanic and maintenance man of our team and jokes he has only had one mechanically interested student in 2018! We live in the Shropshire Hills so wonderful countryside for walking and wildlife. The nearest small town is Church Stretton. Historic Shrewsbury (N)and Ludlow (S)are about 15 miles away and there is train and bus connections to them for none car owners. We garden organically and rear or buy local high welfare standards meat. We are not purists but try to shop and live ethically within our means.
We include our students/WWOOFers as part of the family and we prepare the meals and eat together. There is always talking and banter!
