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 at Wheems.

|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. And a growing number of members who come to help out and share their skills. The wood is also open to the public for walks, BBQs, camping, parties. |
We recently took over the Woods and are in the exciting early stages of developing it as a hub for artisans and an instead-of-school. 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 a new meeting space.
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

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.

We have approximately 30 acres of land, mostly woodland and garden, with a few fields which are currently let to a local farmer.

|Preview host||Hello, Although we are new WWOOF hosts we have hosted many foreign students in the past when we were more actively farming. Now we only have a few chickens and a large organic vegetable garden and coppiced woodland. A neighbor rents the grassland. We live in the Shropshire Hills so wonderful countryside for walking and wildlife. The nearest small town is Church Stretton. Historic Shrewsbury (N)and Ludlow (S)are about 15 miles away and there is train and bus connections to them for none car owners. We garden organically and rear or buy local high welfare standards meat. We are not purists but try to shop and live ethically within our means. |
We work with the seasons so seeding, planting and growing in the spring, weeding and growing in the summer and harvesting, storing, bottling, making jam in the autumn and clearing up ready for winter.
We include our students/WWOOFers as part of the family and we prepare the meals and eat together. There is always talking and banter!
|Preview host||We are a 177 acre organic farm - mostly grass, small area of arable, small apple orchard and some woodland. We keep suckler cows, sheep and a free-range breeding flock of Norfolk Black turkeys. We also run a wood boiler which heats 2 houses (this is carbon neutral heating - we don't burn oil). |
If you come here as a wwoofer you may be helping with with turkey plucking (December), cleaning and moving turkey houses (February and March), logging and preparing firewood (summer), apple harvesting and apple juicing (autumn) or many other things. One job that always needs doing is cooking - so all wwoofers get to help with preparing meals.
We try to run our farm and live our life in a way that is as sustainable as possible - so we welcome like-minded Wwoofers!
|Preview host||Our house and its well established garden sits on the bank of the River Dee near Banchory in Scotland. |
We are 26 miles west of Aberdeen, and there are regular busses that go from the end of our driveway to Aberdeen and farther West to Ballater and Braemar.
This is a very beautiful place, secluded and quiet.
The work required will be entirely outside, in the walled garden, fence and gate repairs, weeding and digging the vegetable patch, cutting back hedge, pruning small trees, there are hens around and we have four friendly dogs. There will be some cutting back of Ponticum Rhododendrons to create a woodland garden on the bank behind the house. Strimming the river paths and cutting back saplings, river bank repairs.
This would suit two people wishing to work together.
