|Preview host||We are a small business partnership growing and picking apples to press and make juice, which we sell in local produce markets and supply to local cafes, restaurants and pubs. The orchards are 7 miles outside Ludlow but we live in the town, where the accommodation will be. |
We are not certified as organic but all our production methods are consistent with organic ideals and practice.
We especially need help with the apple harvest as all our fruit is picked and washed by hand and we need to maintain production during this time so there are many different activities to get involved with.
|Preview host||I run a small market garden on the very beautiful island of Lismore. Next door is a farm. We would look to share our volunteers so the work is diverse - weeding, planting, general garden maintenance as well as working with animals and other farm work such as track and path maintenance. Some domestic work may also be required. |
The island is roughly 11miles long by 2miles at its widest and has a population of around 200. My property is situated on the lochside with wonderful views up to Ben Nevis.
My growing is done with the seaweed from the beach and manure from horses which graze locally. I am in the process of extending my lavender production and I keep bees.
The farm is small now with some cattle and sheep; the farmer has downsized in recent years.
The island has a vibrant community life and, although there is only one shop and no pub (there is a cafe), there is plenty going on.
|Preview host||Applecross Peninsula, Highland. (Rural Location). |
We run a small artisan fish smoking business, smoking using traditional low impact methods with fish from sustainable sources. Volunteers may be interested to learn the traditional skills and method used in the smoking process.
Help is required with maintaining the large garden, the garden is mainly laid to shrubs and grass.
Help with the smokehouse and maintenance of buildings relating to our projects and home.
Help required with our self catering holiday home.
Accommodation is a double room with shared shower/bathroom, this will be suitable for single volunteers, friends or couples traveling together. Couples/friends may be asked to undertake separate tasks independently of each other but working the same hours.
Main meals are taken together, provisions are provided for breakfast and packed lunch or eat with us. Everyone must be prepared to help with our everyday tasks and with cleaning up in the communal areas used by all.
Daily tasks are by arrangement with the host and are weather dependent. Work clothes can be provided.
|Preview host||We are a small woodland community which uses environmentally sound methods of working the land, without fossil fuels. |
We have planning permission on the condition that we make a living from the land - mainly through forestry, apple work, and gardening. We have solar powered electricity, spring water on tap, and compost toilets. We burn wood for cooking, heating, and for hot water in the bathouse. We eat little meat, and try to cater for all diets. We have no shared spirituality. Life is lived mostly outdoors, so it’s cold in the winter, but we live on the top of a steep hill, so there’s plenty of chances to get warm! There’s loads of wildlife, particularly badgers, deer, and ticks!
Please book by email or post, saying why you're interested in visiting, and any relevant experience you've got. Please check your spam folder!
We have a guest house with a wood burner, but long-johns are still a must in winter. Bring a torch, warm clothes and practical footwear.
|Preview host||We are a typical upland hill farm situated in the beautiful valley of the Black Esk. The house and barns are surrounded by fields. We have an organic garden with large deep beds for vegetable and fruit bushes. Because we have been working away this has been neglected and we would like volunteers who can help bring it back into full production. The house is heated by wood and we have Solar Electric with PV panels. Wood for heating is sourced in the forest nearby and we cut, split and stack on site. We are close to Samye Ling, the UK’s first Tibetan Buddhist monastery. We will be restoring a traditional stone byre (barn) as a workspace as well as build some eco –shelters for temporary accommodation. Our children live independently now but home occasionally. There is a lot of interesting wildlife including badgers, otters and birds of prey. |
|Preview host||We are a 240 acre hill farm on Ben Lawers overlooking Loch Tay in Highland Perthshire; an area of outstanding natural beauty. Our ongoing work is to rejuvenate the farm, and are exploring options for a farm co-op. We have a community facility called the Big Shed, and a small farm shop selling home grown produce. |
We need volunteers to help with the gardens, woodlands and animals. This could include weeding, fencing, firewood, building work, butchering, sausage making and meat packing. Our project for 2017/18 is to plant 40,000 trees!
We like volunteers to stay one month and prefer people who are interested in farming. Accommodation is in our 'off grid' timber cabin.
Meals are cooked and eaten in the farmhouse. Volunteers must be willing and able to cook, usually with our home grown produce (for 3 to 4 people).
We also have 3 horses, 40 + hens, 7 ducks, Kunekune pigs, access to the mountains, and our own beach on the loch where we sometimes have campfires and BBQ’s. There is a thriving traditional music scene locally.
|Preview host||We are particularly looking for longer term volunteers to join us in 2018 - if you are interested in a stay of 12+ weeks please get in touch - ideally a couple / 2 friends to assist us with our productive market garden in beautiful central Scotland. |

|Preview host||The land was previously a paddock and now we have taken to growing fruit and vegetables in raised beds and standard beds. There are a number of projects on the go.....clearing land for soft fruit, an apple tunnel espalier and a new flower border. I practice permaculture and have good compost made this year to spread over the beds, and have a wormery on the go. |
We have some poultry and a couple of Alpaca to guard them.There are also 4 bee hives which need management in the summer.
The village we live in is small and friendly and the wonderful historic town of Sherborne is only a few miles away.
I look forward to imparting my knowledge of permaculture and growing of vegetables and learning from volunteers.
|Preview host||Bakery and Fermenteria/smallholding specialising in sourdough bread, baked in a wood-fired oven and fermented vegetables and drinks. We host village pizza night on Fridays March-Oct. We run baking and fermented food workshops and take fermented veg to markets. Have chickens, vegetable patch and greenhouse. Welcome people interested in learning about sourdough bread, fermenting, to help with our baking classes and making vegetable ferments, at the markets, gardening and chopping wood. We also have an Airbnb caravan and help with change overs needed. We have a redundant slate quarry we are restoring, planting trees. Help also needed on Pizza nights; often music around fire in woods. In the Spring there is a lot of gardening. Caravan sleeps two with compost loo. For campers shower and toilet in the laundry attached to bakery. We eat together and share cooking and cleaning of communal areas. Friendly community. |
|Preview host||Soil Association smallholding producing organic eggs and growing soft fruit and veg for jam and chutney production. Family run on edge of Wales Coastal path on the beautiful Lleyn Peninsula. |
|Preview host||We are a community which now has 5 people (plus 2 children). We are working together to find sustainability both at an ecological and financial level. We have 4 cottages that we rent out as holiday lets, alongside the beginning of a retreat place. |
We participate in a variety of spiritual practices and value individual beliefs. Some practices we share, such as sweatlodges, and seek to support each other.
We have a ¾ acre walled garden of which part is used as a vegetable garden. We have 4 acres in total, which includes a large house and attached cottages. We are looking for any help with the garden and grounds – e.g. digging, weeding, clearing, composting, planting etc. There is also DIY work needed occasionally.
We are 5 minutes from the beach, and the popular Pembrokeshire coastal path is along this stretch of coast which is quite raw and unspoilt. There is also good surfing nearby. We are a mile from the nearest pub, and the nearest town, St David's, is about 6 miles away.
|Preview host||We are a family run woodland just outside Fishguard in beautiful Pembrokeshire. You will be working alongside us with the work including: Coppicing, charcoal production, scything (path maintenance), firewood splitting, habitat creation and other jobs relating to the management of the woodland. All our work aims to help nature and local wildlife. |
Almost all the work on the land takes place using hand tools so you will have a great chance to learn how to use axes, bill hooks and other traditional tools. In the summer we run a campsite so some spring work will involve getting set up for this which will involve preparing the land, some carpentry and the chance to work on some greenwood timber frame structures.
We hope that working with us will provide you with loads of new skills (or the chance to improve existing ones) and to work in a beautiful environment with friendly and welcoming people.
|Preview host||We are URGENTLY looking for wwoofers to help with spring planting! We are a small family farm producing slow maturing free range rare breed pork, lamb and poultry. Our animals are naturally reared outdoors to the highest welfare standards. We also grow a variety of seasonal fruits and veg, sell our produce at farmer's markets and other events. We have also recently planted a cider orchard in conjunction with a local cidermaker, who produces really tasty cider! |
This year 2018 we are finally opening our farmshop here on the farm and hope to expand our poultry and veg growing to stock it.
We also hold many events on the farm, from family open days, music evenings, to weddings. So work here is always varied and interesting!
A typical day on the farm could involve anything from gardening, fencing and green building projects to livestock care and feeding to helping at farmers markets or events!? All very rewarding work in fun and educational environment!!
|Preview host||We are an eco conscious diversified farm that believes in slow food, slow money and sustainability. While not a certified organic farm, we choose to minimise spraying, minimise artificial fertiliser and allow our cattle to express their "cowiness". |
Our farming enterprise consists of:
- a small herd of Pedigree South Devon cattle which are grass fed and grass finished,
- a heritage apple orchard with 2000 trees consisting of 40 varieties from which we make single variety apple juice.
We have diversified into hospitality and operate a 5 star award winning B&B which is accredited by Green Tourism at their Gold Standard and a busy wedding and events venue.
Our green credentials extend to a solar array on one of our barn roofs and a biomass district heating system, currently fuelled by purchased woodchip. However, we expect to be self sufficient by harvesting our own woodland.
|Preview host||We have lived at this property for five years and are trying to create a more self-sufficient small holding on our four acres. We have some chickens, as well as mature fruit gardens, a newly planted orchard and forest garden, a newly planted field of trees - willows for firewood and avenues to become a secluded campsite one day - as well as vegetable gardens and a highly productive polytunnel. There are many maintenance tasks around the property and in the gardens. We focus on establishing perennial, forest type gardens. We are currently completing the building of a strawbale cabin for additional family accommodation, using rammed tyre foundations. We now have plans to complete the landscaping around the cabin, add some fences and plant some hedges, plant the wildflower meadow and build some platforms for bell tents. |
We have both travelled fairly extensively and are comfortable with all tastes, diets and cultures.
|Preview host||A basic field with a newly built cabin, will one day host courses on aspects of self-sufficiency, as well as providing a space for people to get involved with growing food, all set up with a minimum of monetary investment. |
As an ex I.T. technician, I am skilling myself up using the Internet and friends - join us! Plans this year: creating a 1/4 acre edible forest garden, market garden beds, compost loo, electric fencing etc.
Currently planted 2000 willow, 400 native and 70+ apple trees for future use. Just installed small polytunnel with another planned this summer.
|Preview host||I have lived here for 5 years, I previously had a smallholding in Bude and grew organic vegetables commercially Soil Ass reg. I dont have livestock, but I have a pony and trap. There are wonderful walks as I am on the coastal footpath. |

|Preview host||Foot-Slope-Soap was founded in 2015 by two artists with a passion for the environment. Our valley, with its surrounding hills cloaked in SSSI ancient oak woodlands, is renowned for being the most beautiful in all Ceredigion, popular with hikers, cyclists and wild swimmers. We are looking for enthusiastic but mindful help at the very beginning of our exciting new project. We aspire to have our 18 acres, mostly pasture at present, eventually reach certified organic status. The land, temporarily let to a respected local sheep farming couple, includes a river and two acres of mature deciduous woodland. Current work is concentrated on outbuildings, and beginning construction of an organic garden and apiary near the main house. The original farmhouse is a 17th century Welsh longhouse, being carefully renovated to provide further accommodation. The hayloft is now a cosy private sleeping barn for two. The converted 18th century threshing barn has accommodation for one/two WWOOFERs and us, with shared bathroom, fitted kitchen, woodburners and even carpets. NOTE: there is very limited WIFI, no TV, and rarely any mobile signal. |
|Preview host||We are situated in the rolling green "Drumlins" on the edge of Rathfriland village, a rural farming community. The small holding overlooks the Mourne Mountains and is also half an hour from beautiful forests and beaches. |
Activities include tending the organic garden plot, tree planting and maintenance, old barn restoration using lime, fencing, splitting wood and drying.
The host is passionate about the outdoors and enjoying the local environment is encouraged. Depending on the time of year there will be opportunities for active Woofers to go kayaking, mountain biking or mountain walking.Also eating good homemade food (mostly vegan) and log fire.
Spring 2018 Plans: Planting out oak saplings, thinning existing woodlqnd. Preparing and planting veg and herb plots.Tree pruning. Stone walls and restoration of barn walls. Learn to make sour dough and sauerkraut-lessons welcome!
|Preview host||We run Britain's most northerly veg box scheme from a 50 acre croft situated in the far west mainland of Shetland. We are committed to providing the local community with chemical free produce, growing with minimal fossil fuel use and reducing Shetland's carbon footprint. We use pigs and spades to clear ground instead of tractors; hand tools for weeding and harvesting. Our enterprise is expanding each year, increasing our growing land and our customers. We keep animals for manure and meat; at present we have 20 Shetland sheep (and their lambs), two pigs, 90 hens, lots of ducks and three cats. |
Tasks include clearing ground, sowing, planting, weeding and harvesting; working with livestock, fencing, cutting peat for fuel and erecting polytunnels all depending on the time of year. WWOOFers should be willing to mix with the local community.
We are looking for WWOOFers who are genuinely committed to a sustainable lifestyle, have experience in growing or who are keen to learn about what we do. Please include as much detail about yourselves/experience as you can in your email.
|Preview host||Particularly interested in short term WWOOFers , however if the WWOOFer fits in well to the lifestyle, longer periods of stay could be accepted. The family has lived here for 12 years and the land consists of 56 acres and is used for sheep and 6 horses at present. On the farm we grow organic vegetables in season and make our own hay. Jan the main host is looking for help from WWOOFers in the stables occasionally, operating light machinery around the farm, strimming, using ride on mower, cutting wood. The vegetable patch requires maintenance as well as other various jobs around the property. As a rule we are only looking for female WWOOFers. Occasional woodland maintenance may be required. |
|Preview host||We're a family of 2 adults & 3 boys, although as the boys get older they spend less time at home. We live in a small village near Cambridge, so lots to explore nearby including the city of Cambridge, Cambridge University, and Ely Cathedral. We have a one acre garden which is part of the National Garden Scheme. The work is light garden work. If you choose to stay with us, we'd like you to work 4 to 6 hours a day (Monday through Friday). If you'd like to stay for more than one week, we'd like to build in a ‘Review after the First Week’ to see if the stay is working out for both parties. We live about one hour from Stansted Airport. If you're flying into England, this is the closest airport to us. |

|Preview host||The woodland home of Clare and Nathan. They both have over 10 years experience of teaching and specialise in working with excluded young people and environmental education. |
Focussing on art and music, our Project aims to provide a space where students lead their own learning with facilities for woodwork, arts, crafts, vegetable growing, music production and many other possibilities including teacher training.
Although this project has been years in the making, we have only just moved onto this site, so you have the exciting opportunity of being part of something new.
We need to get the veg garden up and running, renovate an old cottage for residential provision and build a workshop in the "goat shed".
|Preview host||We are a small rural smallholding nestled above the steep wooded vallies of the Teifi river. The property consists of the remains of a very old farm; 6 acres of meadow, woodland and garden. There is an apiary, a young orchard, chickens and established woodland. The small holding is in need of work and restoration. Nicky and Audley and their teenage children live at at the house. Audley is an acupuncturist and Nicky works for a housing action charity. Accommodation for WWOOFers is very comfortable and self contained. We are surrounded by small organic farms and communities.

|Preview host||We are an organic vegetable farm in the heart of Snowdonia, running a community supported agriculture project that feeds approximately 100 families. The farm is run by a Workers' Co-op and is in the process of applying permaculture design to site development, as well as diversifying our operations to include value-added food processing and a campsite. |
Accomodation is a bit basic, in an array of caravans and converted barns with compost toilets, but the views are spectacular! Plenty of opportunity here for skilling up in intensive vegetable production and enjoying the phenomenal natural beauty of North Wales.
|Preview host||Skot and I live on our family hill farm. Its an incredibly beautiful spot with hills, woodland, flatland, a beck, a river and the most amazing oak trees. We have big plans for our small holding. Currently we have a suckler herd, a hand full of sheep and a lot of potential. We are growing our own vegetables, with varying success, I run a small bed and breakfast as well as a chef in a local hotel. We are planning 3 off grid cabins in the woods, we would like to expand the livestock, the garden and also our sustainability and welcome any help we can get. |
|Preview host||We are a primarily a livestock farm with 4 Luing cows, 50 breeding ewes and 10 pigs. We also grow a small amount of vegetables. We have recently acquired an onsite butchery unit and hope to butcher our own lamb and pork to sell locally and at the market in Dornoch.

Various small building, energy & water projects usually on the go. Accommodation will either be in one of our fun retro caravans or a room in our house. Local sights include Bath, Stonehenge & Glastonbury. We can teach small-scale commercial growing & general smallholding skills. All committed WWOOFers are sure of a warm reception!
|Preview host||Our Orchard is an uncertified biodynamic smallholding near Dartington in South Devon. We produce vegetables and fruit, and we have a few ducks and chickens. Much of the work is done by a dedicated team of volunteers who help out on mondays and thursdays during the growing season. All our produce is either eaten on site or given away and we are funded by individual donations. The site is hidden in a secluded valley but only 3 or 4 miles from Totnes and Buckfastliegh. This year we are constructing a small cob building and we're looking for extra help with this as well as with the regular garden work. For more info see our website. Please note that our facilities are basic. We have a compost toilet and an outdoor hot shower. We also have an outdoor kitchen and 12v solar for charging mobile phones but we dont have internet. The caravan's are pretty old and shabby, but we hope that the hospitality and good and plentiful food makes up for it. |
|Preview host||We have a smallholding in a small village at the foot of the North Pennines, 8 miles east of Penrith, Cumbria. The smallholding has a long history of being organically managed (though not currently certified) and offers the chance to learn about organic production of livestock, eggs, vegetables and fruit. |
We particularly welcome people for weekends or long weekends - but we can accommodate longer visits, depending on the time of year.
It is an ideal site for cycling and fell-walking. It is also easy to reach the Lake District and Hadrian’s Wall if you have your own transport.
We are looking for people to help prepare vegetable beds in spring, weeding and harvesting in the summer and autumn. Other jobs include maintenance of grass in the orchard and haymaking. You can also work with cows and hens and occasionally on fencing and dry stone walling.
Accommodation is in a wooden summer house or camping in the orchard, sharing facilities with the main house.
|Preview host||We are a mixed livestock operation, cattle and sheep uses silage for winter keep, limited vegetable and indoor growing, with an ambition to expand vegetables for local markets |
|Preview host||We have a family run farm on the outskirts of a somerset village, in the heart of the levels. We are building the infrastructure for our free-range duck and goose meat business. We are setting up incubation areas, brooding areas, fencing free-range areas and building animal shelters. We also have a large vegetable area for our own use, and a commercial asparagus (half acre field), which needs weeding and maintaining. We have several Polytunnels which need erecting. There are a few rare breed pigs and sheep which need feeding and cleaning out . Basic care of the ducks and geese and egg collection is a daily job. We need people with enthusiasm to get involved and work hard and enjoy making things happen. Anyone with building or strimming experience will be especially useful. Please do not come if you do not intend to put in lots of energy, as we have limited space and need enthusiastic workers! We have comfortable accommodation. |
Healthy food, interesting work and sociable weekends living and working together as a member of our family.
|Preview host||Welcome to our farm holidays. We are a family run business offering a wide range of experiences. |
We require people who have excellent customer skills and practical skills. We have 100 guests stay at our farm each week, so Woofers need to be polite and able to interact in a friendly manner with our guests. You will also need to be consciousness, enthusiastic and hard working. My attitude is you get out of life what you are prepared to put in yourself.
We would like you to help feed the animals, which are chickens, sheep and calves. We ask you to work in our garden . We have a woodwork workshop so if you have skills in that area that would be helpful.
You will see on our website that we offer activities like archery and kayaking. You may have an opportunity to get involved with that side of our business. If you feel you are able to fit into our business, we would look forward to hearing from you.
Kind Regards Andy, David, Sarah, Sami and Benjy
|Preview host||We have 12 acres which consists of a number of paddocks, an ancient cider apple orchard, flower gardens, veg gardens and a grass tennis court...currently being bought back to life! We are a small, relaxed farm and really enjoy working to improve and maintain our grounds in the most sustainable and organic way we can. |
We also have 2 luxury en-suite yurts that we rent out for holiday accommodation throughout March - November.
We would like help from wwoofer's to help us manage and improve the land, including managing the oldest cider apple orchard in the area, keeping on top of woodland, gardens, hedges etc., improving the grass tennis court - lots of mowing! We would also request help in the running of our yurts, including light cleaning, lawn mowing etc. Lastly, we enjoy growing organic veggies, although our land is not certified organic we are working towards this.
We have two children, Lottie and Alice, who are usually around and so any wwoofer staying for more than a few days should enjoy the company of children!
|Preview host||Our farm is a small agroecological oasis in the middle of industrial agriculture, in the county of Angus on the southern rim of the Howe of Strathmore located close to Montreathmont Wood, a haven of biodiversity. We grow fruit and make juice from fruit including apples, raspberries and elderberries. We need help in tending to the fruit from planting, weeding, harvesting, pruning and other tasks involved in maintaining the farm such as grass cutting. We also pick fruit on other farms and walled gardens. We have plans aimed at improving the farm. Erecting a fruit cage over the aronia (so we might get some of the fruit instead of the blackbirds), building raised beds for veg, creating a blueberry plantation, planting hedges, building new compost area, digging a pond, building a walled garden and renovating a bothy, mending dry stane dykes. We have diverse spaces for development including the orchard, the corn yard, the oak tree walk, the bothies, the garden, the berry field and the greenhouse. |
Please submit applications by email only.
|Preview host||On 6 acres of a former mushroom farm, our south facing gently sloping site was untended for 20 years until we took it over in 2010. It now includes 2 eco bungalows and a range of gardens and woodland. Biodiversity is our aim. Our gardens are managed organically although this was not always the case during the early days of development. We feel far removed from city life, but are only 20 minutes from the centre of Nottingham. |
Join us tending our organic vegetable and fruit garden, polytunnel or greenhouse as well as:
meadow, woodlands, orchard, prairie and other gardens and a dedicated composting area.
We also undertake a wide-range of wildlife recording within the garden, on the local farm and adjacent country park.

|Preview host||Our Farm is a 5 acre smallholding on the border of East Devon and West Dorset, 5 miles from the south coast near Lyme Regis. We are 10 minutes walk from Marshwood which has a pub and small shop. |
We keep chickens and rare breed Devon Black pigs. We also have a cider apple orchard and vegetable garden. Our aim is to produce enough high quality ingredients such as charcuterie for our catering business and pop-up restaurant as well as local delis and restaurants.
Jobs around the farm could include any of the following: fencing, drainage, laying hedges, working in the vegetable garden, weeding, repairing fencing, some basic carpentry and maintenance of buildings and equipment.
Wwoofers would be expected to work for 6 hours per day with two days off per week. Winter accommodation is in a bedroom in our house with ensuite bathroom. Between April and October, accommodation is in a large tent with proper beds. We will provide all meals, some self-catered.
This is best suited to a pair of friends or a couple.

|Preview host||We are an organic farm in the beautiful county of Devon, the heart of the West Country. We are lucky enough to be in an incredibly peaceful and scenic location, whilst only being 3 miles (half an hour on the farm bicycle or by bus from Ide,) from the historical city of Exeter. Ide village, 10 minutes away, has two pubs with good food and entertainment and a local community shop. |
The farm has just over 100 Hereford beef cattle, a small flock of Shropshire sheep and a group of Oxford Sandy and Black pigs. We also grow potatoes, squashes and apples. Our organic beef and pork is sold through our farm shop, local shops, and direct to caterers.
As well as selling meat the farm runs over 150 education visits a year, holds public open days and private events such as Weddings and Birthday Parties.
With all these animals and people about it can get a little crazy but it’s also lots of fun. Please be sure to read the extended description for prospective WWOOFers BEFORE contacting us.

Since we moved here, in December, 1995, we have developed a cider apple orchard and we now harvest apples each year in October and take them to Thatchers' cider factory. We also make apple and pear juice for friends and family using traditional apple presses.
We have a well-planted walled garden for the bees and we work in the Forest Garden, which is now becoming productive We usually take fruit, veg or plants to the local Friday market. Work varies from season to season and from year to year - care of animals, seasonal planting, harvesting and lots of pruning and mulching !
If you have carpentry skills, and / or are keen to learn about organic gardening and permaculture ways, you will be particularly welcome.
We are happy to accept day / week-end Wwoofers and it helps if you can book well in advance. Non-smokers only, please.
