|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, by planting trees and reducing animal numbers 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.
We like volunteers to stay at least a couple of weeks 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 to cook, usually with our home grown produce (for 3 to 4 people).
We also have 3 horses, hens and ducks, Kunekune pigs, rare breed sheep, 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 looking for longterm woofers / interns for the 2019 season. Ideally suit a couple or friends happy to share onsite accommodation who are keen to learn all aspects of market gardening in beautiful Perthshire. Ideally from April-October but will consider shorter stays. |
We are a team of young farmers running a market garden going into our 4th year of production and grow a wide range of vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers.
We practice no-dig soil management and follow organic principles without certification due to the fact we direct sell most of the produce. Using bio-intensive production methods and wildlife friendly techniques we try and maximise our soil health whilst maintaining high productivity.
Ideally suited to people wanting to find out more about the reality of small scale sustainable farming or planning to start their own farm / small holding and wanting to gain valuable experience.
We would love to share our experiences of starting out and setting up from scratch with people keen to start / develop their own projects.

|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 5 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||136 acre organic farm near Monmouth in south Wales: traditional native breed cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, plus chickens, vegetables, fruit. Sustainable biomass boiler. Although near large towns (Cardiff, Bristol, Birmingham) it is very private and exceptionally beautiful. It is a wildlife haven with woodland, hedges, big views. However be aware that it is fairly isolated. Outdoor lovers only please though no experience of farming needed. |
Ruth is the main resident with dogs, horses and farm animals. Her adult sons are sometimes around as are various helpers (daily). Ruth also runs Airbnb & residential therapeutic workshops including Equine Therapy and courses from the farm.
Ruth speaks Welsh and her sons also speak German as well as English.
Ideally welcome an individual who enjoys being on their own though a couple or two friends might also suit. Very nice accommodation in modern caravan and/or two bell tents plus access to wood fired sauna, bikes and horses.
Especially need someone from anytime now to help with 2 acres of organic asparagus. This would be main project. It is light, steady and satisfying work.
|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 have a beautiful garden in our countryside home where we cultivate our own food during the summer months and maintain flower beds as well. |
We only use organically sourced methods of fertilization and we strive to plan our beds using the permaculture philosophy.
We would like to welcome individual wwoofers during the summer months to help us maintain the garden and enjoy organic living with us.
Daily garden maintenance is required, varying from lawn cutting to pruning, weeding, watering, etc.
We have a dog (Old English Mastiff) named Conan. He loves to keep anyone's company in the garden.
|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, a family of 4, bought Treganoon in 2014 and are slowly changing it into a productive small holding and small B&B. Originally dating back to the 1600's it used to be the largest farm in the parish. In the past 50 years land & outbuildings have been sold off, leaving us with Treganoon House and 5 acres of land. |
Much of the land we have turned over to woodland, with over 1700 native trees helping us restore our little patch of paradise. We currently have a small orchard and productive fruit & veg garden and keep chickens (for eggs) and pigs (for meat). The B&B is open from May to September, outside of this 'season' we spend as much time renovating the house as we do making the land productive. So even when it rains there is plenty to do.
If you want to be involved in helping to shape a space, then this would be a good project to be involved with.
|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 and minimise the use of artificial fertiliser. |
Our farming enterprise consists of:
- 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||We are a 23 acre organic (Soil Association certified) farm situated in Ceredigion's coastal belt, less than two miles from the sea. Established in 2008, it is owned and run by Nathan Richards and Alicia Miller. The farm’s ethos is built around a belief in the necessity of farming sustainably in the 21st century. |
This means a whole farm holistic approach to food production which starts with the microbial worlds within our soil and encompasses everything from habitat protection and creation, to the role that the farm has within the local community.
We focus on local food, serving our immediate community through a box scheme delivered within ten miles of the farm, local producer’s markets, and retail outlets such as restaurants and health-food stores. Staying local means our food is fresh, mostly picked and sold on the same day, and fresh food is the key to good cooking.
We currently grow approximately 9 acres of field scale vegetables, alongside eight large polytunnels producing summer tomatoes, winter salads etc. We also have a large, developing soft fruit orchard
|Preview host||Foot-Slope-Soap was founded in 2015 by two artists with a passion for the environment. Our valley, with surrounding hills cloaked in ancient oak woodlands, is renowned for being the most beautiful in all Ceredigion, popular with hikers, cyclists, 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 mature deciduous woodland. Current work is focused on outbuildings, including Bethel, a 19th century chapel on our land, and continuing construction of an organic garden and apiary. The original farmhouse is a 17th century Welsh longhouse, which has been carefully renovated to provide further accommodation. The hayloft is now a cosy sleeping barn for two. The converted 18th century threshing barn has accommodation for one/two WWOOFERs and us, with shared bathroom, fitted kitchen, wood burners and even carpets! NOTE there is very limited WIFI, no TV, and rarely any mobile signal. |
|Preview host||I am 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 permaculture garden,tree planting and maintenance, food preparation, old barn restoration using lime, fencing, splitting wood and drying.
I love sport and the outdoors and 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 organic food (mostly vegan) and log fire. A bicycle, guitar and reading area are available, plus occasionally the chance to go to a local folk music session or gig.
Summer 2018 Plans: Maintaining existing woodland. Preparing and planting veg and herb plots. Beginning to harvest and preserve e.g. berries. Tree pruning. Stone walls and restoration of barn walls. Also the chance to learn to make kimchi, kambucha and bread. Helping with B&B guests. If the work all gets done-we go find a river to cool off!
|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 13 years and the land consists of 56 acres and is used for sheep and 6 horses at present. On the farm we make our own hay. There are a variety of jobs to do in the house, in the garden and around the farm. Being versatile would be helpful. If you would like to gain some experience handling horses, not riding, this would be a job for you. We are not growing vegetables at present as time is limited but if you have a particular interest in this, there is a vegetable plot waiting to be planted. We also have a room we rent out to paying guests and that has to be cleaned when guests have left. |
|Preview host||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 help out 5 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 house is set in the hamlet of Worth, 3 miles from the cathedral City of Wells, with the Mendip Hills to the North and the Somerset Levels to the South. The area provides a wonderful variety of landscapes for walking and cycling and is rich in rural and cultural history. The house is set in 1 acre of gardens, which are managed organically using leaf mould and horse manure. The house was originally an early 19th Century farmworker's cottage, which was extended in the 1950's and then again in 2003. It has spacious accommodation including large kitchen and conservatory. |
|Preview host||We are in the starting stages of a new smallholding and we have acquired the land recently, however many systems are already in place including partly converted stables with wc/shower, a bore hole for water, and six fully irrigated polytunnels plus a field with sheep and an orchard, so we are are ready to create and need hands to get into the earth and grow things. |
|Preview host||Focussing on art and growing, 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. All manner of small works are required from preparing wood supplies, gardening, clearing brambles, scything, mowing etc to maintenance of the fabric. Help with day to day personal organisation also appreciated. The family have lived here for 20 years. The culture is bookish, educated and creative. |
Do not know why there are no comments posted but there have been many happy WWOOFers!
See @TyHenCottage on FB for pictures!
|Preview host||Originally a farm - now approx. 1 idyllic acre sheltered, south facing hillside overlooking sea - spring, ponds, trees, shrubs, rocks, orchard, forest garden, lawn, fruit, vegetables - deep beds, cold frames - chickens, geese and cats. Wild life in woods. Spacious warm house, studio barns and bunkhouse. Developed single-handed by artist/writer with more time than money - recycling, improvising - as productive, peaceful oasis - used by numerous family, friends, groups and individuals to rest, rejuvenate, re-create.

|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||80 acre biodynamic farm in Carmarthenshire with small herd of quiet ex dairy cows, some Welsh Blacks, and a group of Belted Galloways, producing beef for sale locally; also grazing common land on Mynydd Llangyndeirn; 6 ewes, 3 goats, and fruit and vegetable garden. Running an organic vegetable box membership scheme, growing the veg and involving members on the land. Rich wildlife habitats, beautiful location: farm is owned by a small charity and provides home to a man with special needs, and hosts visiting young people. Two resident families, currently seeking long-term co-workers. Short or long term help needed all year with seasonal farm work, gardening, polytunnel work, animals, bread making, cooking etc. Interests include folk music, dancing, basket making and homoeopathy. Prefer stays of longer than 3 weeks. |
|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 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 although the mobile phone signal is good. The caravan's are pretty old and shabby, but we hope that the hospitality and good and plentiful food make 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||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. We also pick fruit on other farms and walled gardens in Sept/Oct. 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. |

|Preview host||An off grid Fenland Farm not far from Cambridge ; bordered by National Trust land and Cambridge Polo grounds . We are only ten minutes by car from the picturesque City of Cambridge or by bike 45 minutes using the cycleway that takes you to the centre of Cambridge . |
Certified Organic for over 25 years we raise a large range of vegetables and some fruit. We also raise some seed for the Organic seed Co op . Two CSA's operate on the farm ; Waterland CSA and Cambridge CropShare . During the summer volunteers come and help on many Saturdays and Woofers would be working alongside them if their stay overlaps . The farm is rich in wildlife and is blessed with more trees than most fenland but these do not detract from the beautiful sunrises and sunsets . Volunteers would be helping Farmer Paul , Farmer Doreen and Farmer Helen in planting ,irrigating, weeding and harvesting of fruit and vegetables. We share our farm with one ex racehorse, a pony , a collie , a fat cat and an overweight geriatric chicken . Only take volunteers over 20 years old.
|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.
Share your positivity with ours, share our home, short term or weekends. Email and FaceTime welcomed.

|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 7 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||In the 2 acre garden we grow vegetables, salads and fruit for residents, tourists, the local shop and weekly market. |
We have a large polytunnel, outdoor veg beds and an orchard. No chemicals are used and the abundant seaweed is our mulch/soil improver. We would be glad to teach all aspects of running a small market garden.
Please note the independent WWOOFer caravan is basic, has no electricity (uses solar lighting) plus gas for heating/cooking. There is a composting toilet on site and showers locally. The nearest wifi and phone signal is 4 miles away in the village. Although remote, this area offers fantastic wildlife, beautiful beaches, local events/classes and a welcoming community.
Wwoofers considering this opportunity will need to be independent, able to work alone at times and happy to be in an isolated place, living off grid with simple facilities. On at least one of your work days you would be required to work on your own.
Own transport is essential.
|Preview host||We (Helga and John) share our house with a border collie called Jess. |
Our 12 ha small holding with 45 ewes, 10 suckler cows, hens and ducks is managed to maintain fertility (non-organic). Organic principles sustain our 0.5 ha of vegetable garden and polytunnel.
Helga manages the farm whilst John combines his main job as a University Professor with being a farmer and gardener. We also have occasional help from a local volunteer whose particular interest is tractors and farm machinery.
We make our own bread, wine, and preserves and eat our own beef, lamb, chicken and eggs, but are happy to eat vegetarian should our Wwoofers be vegetarian.
Wwoofer acommodation is a double bed in a spare bedroom, so suitable for one wwoof-er at the time or friends/couple who don't mind sharing. The house is warm and cosy using renewable heating, although internal upgrading of other rooms is in process.
Mobile reception and internet access are available
We are a non-smoking household.
|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.

|Preview host||Our Farm produces a broad range of organic vegetable and fruit crops throughout the summer. Crops are grown undercover in a greenhouse and in a large polytunnel, and outside. There are free range chickens and geese and a flock of sheep. We are and have been certified Organic by The Soil Association for 25 + years. |
We would like to build a sustainable bothy on the farm in 2019 so it would be wonderful to hear from people with joinery skills or anyone looking to get experience in timber frame housebuilding and self sufficiency - although the construction is not yet confirmed, availability for the eco bothy build we hope to be February - July 2019. There is always other work in the poly tunnel with the organic veg and for most wwoofers this will be the main work.
We look forward to hearing from you. We take 3-6 wwoofers at a time. Wwoofers come for 2-3 weeks and sometimes longer by arrangement when they are here.
|Preview host||We are looking for help from genuine people with an empathy for animals and the countryside,.We have small farm which is run organically. We rear our own lambs, we also have rescued horses and other rescued animals including dogs. We have a very large garden which has many rare and ancient types of bushes/trees. All weed control, hedging etc is done by hand , we do not use sprays or heavy machinery and is therefore very time consuming. |
We have a flock of free range hens whose eggs are like you never tasted!
Our natural hedgerows and shrubbery are a haven for wild birds and insects. There is a large established badger sett with over 15 resident badgers, we have bats in our barns.
This is close to areas of special scientific interest, and natural beauty. Meres and mosses.
It is only a mile or so to the Welsh border and is near enough to the coast to spend weekends off there.
It is a perfect peaceful retreat from city/office life.
We welcome people from other countries.
|Preview host||We live and work (editors of a scientific journal) in a house built in the early 1800s with 5 hectares of land situated in rural Dumfriesshire. We keep sheep, chickens, bantams, ducks and bees as well as a pet dog and cat. We have developed the land, an upland area 200m above sea level and facing north, as a garden by planting trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants and developing a vegetable and soft fruit garden and an orchard. We have ponds and are also developing a wild flower area. We need help in the garden (e.g. planting, weeding, pruning, mowing and strimming) and tending our animals (e.g. feeding and cleaning). We can offer comfortable accommodation and good food (most of the vegetables out of the garden). We can lend bicycles to explore the area. If needed we can drive you to the nearest village to catch a bus for a day out. |
|Preview host||A micro-organic smallholding on the edge of Tetbury - we are a short walk to the town centre. We have a lake, orchard, woodland, wild flower meadow and vegetable plots - a lot for such a small space! |
The accommodation will be either in a shepherds hut or the main house depending on availability. Hot showers and composting toilet is available on site as well as clothes washing and drying.
We are looking for Wwoofers that can muck in with all manner of jobs from irrigation, weeding, scythe work, fence and hedge laying, vegetable growing and tending. Also we will require help with our green energy fledgling bicycle enterprise from time to time.
In particular we need help building a mountain bike pump track - so any experience of this would be welcome - and it will be great fun!
Tetbury is a fantastic location to explore the Cotswolds. Bicycles are provided for use by the Wwoofers.
|Preview host||In a stunning location overlooking Ennerdale Water in the English Lake District, The Wild Wool Barn, our Farm is a family home, with a 1/2 acre plot, being developed to a "Natural Dye Garden" |
We look forward to welcoming keen gardeners from all over the world to develop the garden and eventually take part in the processes of capturing the dyes from the plants for use in the on-site spinning and weaving studio.
|Preview host||Our wood is 60 acres of chestnut coppice with stands of beech, scots pine, douglas, cedar and giant sequoia. It is the base for a collection of small enterprises: a cafe, forest school, woodland products business, Christmas Tree field. And a growing community of members who come to help out and share their skills. The wood is also open to the public for walks, courses, BBQs, camping, parties. |
We took over the Wood in 2014 and have been very busy building communal spaces and developing an annual calendar of working parties and celebrations. Plans in the pipe-line include: chestnut cabins for visiting families and apprentices to sleep in, new workshops and studios to allow more people to work here, a swimming pond and much more.
We are looking for people who can help with some or all of the following: green wood-working, carpentry, building, gardening, forestry, maintenance, house-work, cooking, and chicken-keeping.
Our children don't go to school much so we are looking for people who enjoy having kids around.
|Preview host||We are a small, friendly farm with a vine yard, pigs, sheep and horses. |
We offer training and work experience in cider making, hedge laying, fencing, grassland management, sausage making (for those who are okay with handling meat), pig rearing and building.
Some work is physical (strimming etc), but some is much easier (bottle labelling!)...so we try to even the activities out
Our farm aims to be sustainable, being run mainly off of grid.
Accommodation is in a mobile home with full facilities, including a log burning stove.
We are on a direct bus route into the historic cities of Bath and Wells, with easy access to Bristol and other local towns. There is also a pub within walking distance.
We are flexible about hours worked per day and days of the week worked and willing to consider most proposal...
|Preview host|| We warmly welcome our neighbours from Europe, and look forward to sharing our skills, space and time with you to ensure that we all get the very best out of our time together on our small farm |
Tasks are varied each day and will include general upkeep and maintenance of the farm and Garden and our newly erected poly tunnel and some help in the house and campsite when we are busy, maybe log chopping, and looking after the animals.
Spring 2018 offers another great opportunity to learn some basic carpentry skills.
WWOOFers need to come in pairs for company, unless they are independent and happy to be by themselves maybe to learn English.
Accomodation is in a small caravan where you will be expected to prepare and cook most of your meals with food we provide. We will help you to enjoy your days off so you can explore our local area, and Brighton and possibly London, and we will go out together and walk, bike and explore.
|Preview host||We have approx fourteen acres of land which need a lot of hedging and ditching, We also have a large garden where we like to plant vegetables and flowers .We have chickens and a few elderly sheep..so always a lot to do ! |
The accomodation is a very nice self contained attic flat so a couple would be ideal, we are fairly rural although in walking distance of a small town.
