|Preview host||If you are interested in learning about organic livestock rearing in a stunning part of the country come and volunteer with us. We breed North Devon cattle and Lleyn sheep, also rearing chickens, and pigs. We pack and sell as much of our organically reared meat as we can, direct from the farm. |
Three generations of the Collinge Family live on the farm which has been an established livestock farm for more than 40 years. We also produce , charcoal, and a wide range of vegetables from our garden.
Accommodation is in a large comfortable caravan with a woodburner, kitchen, hot shower, T.V. and WiFi access. We provide you with a wide variety of often home produced meat and vegetables to cook.
The work is very varied and dependent on the time of year but is based around livestock husbandry. Feeding, mucking out, moving, fencing, foot care. There is the opportunity to learn about chicken slaughtering. Plucking gutting and general meat packing, strimming, hedge laying, building work, some vegetable garden work and painting are also on the agenda.

|Preview host||We are a couple in our 50's and we moved with 2 horses into our small holding in the Scottish Borders in April 2017. We are at the very start of setting this up as a facility for ethical, sustainable horse keeping, organic food production for ourselves and guests, and as a 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.
|Preview host||We have a 13 acre chestnut coppice wood which is managed for wood and charcoal (biochar). 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. All is Soil Association certified organic. Our house is in town, 3 km from the farm, so we always like to have 2 or 3 wwoofers at a time so they are not working alone. There is also work in the garden of the house, which is a registered organic part of the holding. |
|Preview host||Louise is a gardener, bookkeeper and therapist, also part of the family is Pupsy, the Border Terrier. |
I am 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.
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 the weather challenging.
Accommodation would be in a double bedded room in the house, sharing a bathroom with me.
Pupsy and I look forward to meeting you.

|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. |

We have a large garden and allotment where we grow some of our food. The allotment is somewhat wild, a section for slow worms and frogs.
We want to be as Organic in our use of the land as possible, and will show you how this is done, so no previous knowledge is needed as we've been growing organically for some time.
We need help with the allotment, digging, weeding, mowing, composting, small pond clearance and planting. The garden is also quite large and we only use organic products on this and the allotment. It also needs help with mowing, weeding, pruning and sweeping.
This summer I have an Art Exhibition on Wildlife and more, so would appreciate anyone who is good at framing and hanging pictures, and helping on the computer to make publicity.

|Preview host||Building straw bale house. |
We have a biodynamic mixed farm with a shop and café where our produce is sold. It has a large team, 24 staff, two apprentices and three adults with learning disabilities.
WWOOFer's will not be helping on the farm or garden but rather to build a straw bale house. The house will consist of 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and a large open-plan lounge and kitchen. The walls are large straw bales (2.4m long) on which the roof sits. The inside walls will be plastered using clay/subsoil from the farm and it will have earth floors. The outside walls will have a lime render.
We started in August 2017 with the foundations and you can see the progress on the blog/website, which has lots of photos. I intend to build it myself with the help of WWOOFers and local volunteers. The money to build the house has been donated. It will be hard work and I am looking for people with practical skills who would like to learn some Eco building skills.

|Preview host||Hello there, |
My wife and I are in the process of setting up an organic smallholding and Campsite. We are trying to start growing fruit and vegetables, raising poultry and shortly be getting goats and pigs. All fruit, vegetables and livestock will be raised ethically, organically and where possible free range.
**We are just starting, very new to this and we are learning as we go and we also hope to learn from our guests...we currently have no animals on site apart from 2 dogs.**
Our campsite will eventually consist of Bell tents and shepherd huts. Compost toilets throughout the site, the showers will firstly be heated by gas then eventually by solar and wind. Drinking and showering water will be provided by a bore whilst we're aiming to provide the water for the crops using rain catching techniques. We are happy to pick up wwoofers from the local train station
|Preview host||I live in the Blyth Valley about 9 miles from the sea. I have recently moved to this small bungalow so have lots to do! I am preparing a vegetable garden, trying to plan according to permacultural principles. When I have decided where things go there will be planting to do! |
Practical skills would be useful. I need a woodstore, washing line and to make some raised beds. Also in need of inspiration as regards eco-ising the house.
I have been growing organically for 30 years and use permaculture principles too and am always wanting to learn more!
I enjoy practicing yoga, go to a Chi Kung class and cycling and would be happy for you to join me.
You are also welcome to join me playing music on Fridays or any time ( folk of various kinds! ) Wifi available.
|Preview host||We run a busy croft on the North West corner of the Isle of Skye. We grow our own vegetables, raise chickens for eggs & meat. We also run a herd of 10 cows and 50 sheep. Work required would range from gardening, cutting peats for winter, working with the livestock and generally helping about the croft. Working hours would be flexible as we both work away from the croft and do most of our croft work in evenings and at weekends. |
|Preview host||I have a good sized garden mainly down to fruit and vegetables. This includes a greenhouse with a very old grapevine in it. There are a number of types of fruit trees and a range of soft fruit. The annual vegetables are grown in raised beds. The garden is bordered by hedges and adjoins grazing land. There are also outdoor seating areas for relaxing with a cup of tea! |
My style of gardening is relaxed and wildlife friendly. There is a range of work available depending on the season (see the extended description).
I live in a village 10 miles from York which has a regular day time bus service. It also has a community owned shop, a pub and a few other amenities. We are about four miles from the market town of Easingwold.
I aim to adopt a permaculture approach to my lifestyle and garden. I built a strawbale extension to my house some years ago and I am very interested in green building techniques. I am happy to share my experiences of this with others.

|Preview host||Dear Wwoofer, |
We are a family of five consisting of ourselves and three daughters all of whom have flown the nest, but visit regularly. Our cosy home is nestled into the Herefordshire countryside with the black mountains not far away. We own a very productive small holding where we succeed in being more or less self sufficient, with the abundance of vegetables that we grow and the animals that we rear.

Vegetable plot maintenance and help with the chickens will also be required from time to time.
|Preview host||We have been restoring a derelict old manor house for 25 years in the Welsh Marches, about five miles from Abergavenny. Children and grandchildren are here many weekends/holidays; we have dogs and cats. We were brought up in organic traditions – in my wife’s case, subsistence living in a remote Pacific atoll. We have a little over four acres (but are surrounded by a large commercial and mostly organic farm). Our holding includes vegetable gardens, an orchard, vines, large herb garden, ornamental gardens, and woodlands. The woodlands incorporate over 200 exotic species of tree as well as native trees for coppicing. We need help with all of these, and also with rebuilding of stone terraces/walls. We can share/teach how to garden organically; dry stone walling; herb use; and wine and jam making. Type 'Sarah Hebert woofing' on Youtube for a video flavour of our place. |
|Preview host||Robin moved here over 40 years ago and brought up his family here. Dani lives with her husband Remi in a building near Robin's house. There are 35 acres comprising woodland, fruit trees, pasture and gardens. The main crop is old-variety cider apples, then perry pears, damsons and some plums and dessert apples. The fruit harvest is between September and late November, with pruning mainly in late Winter. There are sheep, chickens, ducks, geese and pigs. There is always gardening work to do either in the kitchen garden or in the flower beds. For those who enjoy heavier work there is plenty of firewood to get in and occasional building work. |
|Preview host||Our place is a very special spot in the wilds of south west Scotland. It is a magical small holding with woodland, rivers, pond and pasture. We run a small guest house. |
We are a permaculture land centre.
We are hosting this year's permaculture gathering and are preparing for that.
We have two young children and chickens.
This year we have secured funding to build a childrens garden and food forest, with a compost loo, passive solar green house and a timber framed shelter.
We are in the last months of completion and would welcome enthusiastic green builders.
Whilst we are very rural we have lots of amazing visitors and plenty of stimulation. It's a bustling household.

|Preview host||We are musicians and land lovers and are lucky enough to have had an 8 acre smallholding for 4 years with stream and barn which used to be a veg and flower nursery but has been abandoned for 50 years. it is south facing with views to Englishcombe village and over the hills and far away. Its very peaceful as no road passes by. Badgers, rabbits wild deer buzzards and richness of nature abound as well as rich soil. it was mostly brambles but we have tamed some of the land and put in an orchard and living willow dome. There is fenced pasture,no livestock yet. There is wood and a very beautiful hornbeam avenue. We intend to leave a quarter untouched for wild life. We have just fenced about half an acre against deer and rabbits so we can make this part for veg and flowers in the spring. We need to prepare the land over winter for this. |
it is agricultural land so we can stay over only 28 days a year and live nearby.
|Preview host||Our land is meadow and woodland. We live as greenly as possible. We grow our own vegetables, forage and have our own water supply and solar panels. We use a biomass boiler and grow willow to coppice for fuel. We need help particularly at coppicing time. This involves cutting with hand saws, pruning smaller shoots and stacking to dry. |
We manage the meadow to encourage insects, small mammals, amphibians, wild flowers and biodiversity. We need help in July or August to mow the meadow. We have a petrol mower and a hand scythe for the smaller areas. The hay needs to be raked into stacks and collected using a quad bike and trailer.
We garden organically and there is often weeding, planting, harvesting or hedge planting to do.
We like our wwoofers to feel part of the family, so they eat lunch and dinner with us. But you can be quiet on your own when you wish. You would sleep in our spare bedroom, or in the cottage next to the house. We have wifi.
|Preview host||We are currently pioneering 2 permaculture schemes, one is the reconstruction of an18th-century small holding into a 'Green-Care' center at the site of an old drainage mill at Oby, on the banks of the River Bure on theNorfolk Broads. At this stage its the permaculture design plan with a ground start envisaged spring 2018. |
The second is an intentional community project in beautiful rural Wales. A newly acquired 80 social impact centre inclusive of a designated area for eco-village development. Developing an eco-friendly lifestyle and a social enterprise network to sustain the community to deliver both self-well-being and social change.
We are currently in the early exciting stages of both, so we favour those with experience to help develop the eco aspects and innovate eco-related support activities and infrastructure.
Applicants should ideally be available for a minimum of 3 months, duties are a mix of administration, ground work, organic growing and community support. Preference will be given to those committed to social impact

|Preview host||We are a family with 2 lively children, aged 8 and 10 and a ginger cat called Nellie. We enjoy good food, camping, travelling and the outdoors. We live on an acre of land on the edge of a pretty hilltop village in the Warwickshire countryside. We enjoy cultivating our raised bed organic vegetable/herb gardens and fruit trees. We live in a 19th century cottage and a converted self-contained cottage from where we work. |
We run a busy business designing and importing textile products which are fairly traded and support disadvantaged women in rural areas of Vietnam. We would really appreciate help with our vegetable-growing, weeding and general garden maintenance.
Accommodation is provided in the cottage which has fantastic hilltop views across the surrounding farmland. There is also a small campervan to accommodate extra Wwoofers. WIFI available and mainly vegetarian meals.
|Preview host||We bought the newly converted pumphouse in 2009. It sits in 2 acres of sloping land and is river fronted. The grounds were a blank canvas and we have put in flower beds, fruit cage, vegetable plot, paths, greenhouse, chicken houses, goat house, garden shed and summerhouse. We keep goats and chickens here. |
We are looking for people who would like to help with the animals, vegetable plot and fruit and don't mind weeding, composting, digging and ground clearing. We also need to get wood stores ready for the winter. We often have various projects on the go, as well as maintenance tasks and need help with those. Cathy enjoys various crafts and enjoys spinning. She spins and knits her own wool - the fleeces are sourced from friends locally. She also enjoys making lotions and soaps. Please note we no longer keep bees
|Preview host||We live in a period property, built in 1880. It is in good condition generally but as usual with a property like this, there is constant maintenance. We also have a pond, a chicken house, large garden, mature hedging and trees and garden paths. We keep chickens and ducks, dogs and cats and a peacock. There are also two beehives which I would really like help managing. I am particularly interested in re-establishing the gardens and pond as due to ill health they have been a bit neglected. I would also like to install some dry stone walls and have particular interest in building a hay bale or cob house at the bottom of the fairy glen in the garden. I would like to then use this as an additional space for others to use as an education centre for the sharing of rural skills and alternative energy workshops. Stonemasonry, carpentry, willowcrafting and so on would be fabulous as well. |
|Preview host||We are a warm and friendly three generational family comitted to sustainable living. We are in the process of setting up an organic/eco smallholding/wild camping/glamping/ retreat/healing centre business and need help with building raised beds, clearing, planting etc. As well as restoring the house, we have already run a couple of small famiily festivals and run a couple of glamping units. We also host events in our beautiful wild flower meadow. We have had wonderful reviews, met some amazing guests and have enjoyed every minute. |
We have wild roaming geese, guiinea fowl, chickens, dogs and cats but although our fully grown pigs have recently gone, we plan to have more younger pigs joining us soon. We want to start growing our own food as soon as possible and are gradually managing our woodland as this has been severely neglected before we moved in.
We would like fun loving, like-minded and honest hard working people from any walk of life who would like to come and share our space and lend a hand in building our dream.

|Preview host||I run a woodturning art and photography gallery/workshop in a converted blacksmiths producing high quality bowls and vases using local sourced sustainable greenwoods hardwoods (see my website below). We live next door in a small cottage which has a large vegetable garden with poly tunnel. I am continually moving towards a self sustained lifestyle centred around growing, raising, preserving and storing my own produce in an environmentally friendly, enjoyable and stress free environment. |
Work is varied and seasonal. There is general woodworking, firewood, fencing, gardening, processing and preserving of garden produce. Possibly helping with butchery of local meat, venison, pork, lamb, smoking of salmon... There are several on going building and improvement projects as well as general maintenance, including grass cutting, hedging, weeding, painting. At times you will be working alongside me, or depending on your skill level you may be working alone. If you show an aptitude you may be working with me on the lathe preparing, finishing and turning or carving green wood.
|Preview host||We are committed local food and cut flower producers and micro bakers. Whilst we are not registered as organic (we are still too small) we firmly ascribe to the principles of organic farming, We only sell what we grow in season on about 3 acres of beautiful ground in the Thames Valley. Selling our produce at a weekly market and box scheme. Please do not apply if your primary aim is to ‘improve your English’ we only take volunteers who are interested in organic / sustainable farming methods and who are keen to learn. |
