|Preview host||The Gardens are 8 acres devoted to Devon wild flowers in Widecombe valley. The surrounding farmland is 'improved' and therefore very green pasture good for livestock but our two fields are fertilizer-free and managed for their traditional Devon meadow and woodland flowers. The flower meadow half is owned by our neighbours and we have the more labour intensive woodland. They are both in their full flowering bee buzzing peak and open to the public in May and June through the National Gardens Scheme. To reach the maximum flower carpet intensity and bee satisfaction there is a great deal of tree debris to clear in the early months of the year followed by weeding. In January and February fallen twigs and branches are collected and leaves raked. In March and April is weeding. |

|Preview host||We are a couple in our 50's and we moved with our two horses into our small holding in the Scottish Borders in April 2017. We are working towards setting this up as a facility for ethical, sustainable horse keeping, organic food production for ourselves and guests, and as a bed and breakfast / guest house for visitors to the Scottish Borders. Our target market for this is motorcycle and cycle tourists and walkers, as we are on a national walking trail. |
We have 10 acres of grazing, which includes some very wet land with natural springs, and a large garden which is divided into several areas and includes a polytunnel.
I teach people about ethical horse keeping and force-free animal training and my husband is an expert in business solutions testing and works mostly from home as a consultant for a large IT solutions and service provider. He is also a part time hypnotherapist.
We hope to welcome positive-thinking, energetic and flexible people to come and help us with all and any of the work required around the property.

We have a small orchard of standard mixed varieties of apples, pears, plums, peaches, apricots and hedgerow fruit. We grow some vegetables, mostly sweet corn and squash.

We are looking for help working in the permaculture garden, fencing, general diy, help with cooking, house keeping and being willing to turn your hand to anything. The croft does not have any established growing areas at the moment so a lot of the work and projects will be quite physical.
We can have some beautiful weather here, but it can also be cold and wet even in the summer and most of the work is outside, so come prepared. People from warmer countries please really consider this as some wwoofers have found this challenging.
Accommodation would be in a caravan unless you prefer to camp.
We look forward to meeting you.

|Preview host||After a planning permission enforced break I've recently moved back here and have just got temporary residential permission via my BBQ charcoal business - finally officially allowed to live here! I make the charcoal entirely from my own 8acre coppice so there's a lot of woodland work to be done. |
I've just put a new polytunnel up, and the idea is to start selling a few choice veg crops in late summer through to Christmas when the charcoal sales die off and before the woodland work starts again in earnest. Also, there's a tractor shed to build over the winter and always general small-holding tasks such as growing copius amounts of veg for the table.
Your help would be very much appreciated with any or all of the above! Accomodation is in your own cosy touring caravan complete with lovely little wood burner. I'm on the side of a wonderful wooded valley between Exmoor and Dartmoor, the peace and quiet is stunning. South Molton is a lovely little market town and is 15mins drive away and has everything you need.

We have 270 members of the CSA collecting vegetables every week.
We grow commercially on a field scale, garden scale and in polytunnels.
We have a small herd of cattle and sheep and keep a few pigs to supply the members. We also have close links with a microdairy on a neighbouring farm.
The main work through the summer is the vegetables; planting, weeding and harvesting.
The work forces consists of two managers; Mark, the grower who lives in Stroud and Sam the farmer who lives on site with his family.
There maybe up to 3 seasonal workers during the summer.
We also have member volunteer days.
We have two locations 4 miles apart, 25 acres at Brookthorpe near Gloucester and 25 acres near Stroud. The accommodation is self-catering in a caravan on one of the farms.
Stroud is a town with a thriving farmers market and a vibrant social life.
There are good bus links to both Stroud and Gloucester.
There are great walks around Stroud.
|Preview host||Mixed organic farm of 150 acres, vegetables, beef, sheep, and horses located in the beautiful Slad valley. Includes 40 acres of sustainably managed woodland which we are coppicing, creating new habitats and sustainably felling for firewood. We need help with all aspects of animal husbandry, with building projects; and with hedge laying and planting. The farm has small pond and wetland projects. We also need help with lambing and calving, and with routine work with beef cows and sheep, such as bedding, foot trimming, feeding and fieldwork. The farm has a small area of vegetable and fruit growing - some dedicated ground plus rotated crops with the grassland. Please contact us for details of current projects on the farm. |

|Preview host||We are nestled in the Ayrshire countryside,near Irvine and Kilmarnock, with great views of Arran from the top of our hill. We have recently acquired a run-down smallholding and are slowly renovating inside and out. The one acre garden has barely been touched in many years and requires lots of attention to bring it back to it's former glory while keeping the wildlife happy too. There is also a large polytunnel with grapevine. The aim is to be as self-sufficient as possible but it is a work in progress for us. We have hens, ducks, pigeons, and 2 dogs. Wwoofers can camp or use the spare bedroom. Meals can be provided or you can cater for yourself, and snacks/tea/coffee are available at any time. Volunteers are welcome to take part in any of host Lyndsey's yoga classes while staying. |
In return we appreciate help with painting the buildings, looking after the poultry, working in the garden and polytunnel, composting and making any repairs necessary. If you have carpentry/wood/bricklaying skills, we would especially appreciate your help.
|Preview host||We maintain a garden with vegetable plot, compost heaps, greenhouse and a fruit cage. |
There is also a 2.8 acre meadow with over 70 species of flowering plants, 30 species of trees and shrubs and 20 grasses, sedges and rushes.
We encourage wild flowers especially Southern Marsh orchids by leaving an area of long grass which requires scything in June/July.
We have a couple of stands of willow for firewood requiring cutting,splitting and stacking.
There is a 9m polytunnel in which we are learning to grow soft fruit, veg and flowers extending the growing season.
Our chickens provide a source of fresh eggs.
The meadow is bordered by a stream whose bank requires regular maintenance.
We have a large overgrown pond which requires maintenance.
We hope you will enjoy harvesting our produce and preparing it for eating.
We are a non-smoking household.

We have a small suckler heard of traditional Hereford cattle and a retired Shire horse.
