|Preview host||We are a small farm in North Devon growing ORGANIC FLOWERS AND VEGETABLES predominantly for the local market . We believe in a holistic approach to growing, encouraging biodiversity and working with nature. |
Over the past few years we have built up a supportive network of customers who buy from us twice weekly in the local pannier market in South Molton.
In the summer we predominately grow and supply seasonal English flowers for the local market and for an increasing number of weddings. We work with local florists to provide a complete floral wedding package.
We grow a range of summer salad vegetables and as the autumn progresses we move from flowers to the full range of autumn and winter vegetables, again sold mainly at our market stall in South Molton.
The farm is run by Ant and Penny and a small team of wonderful and willing helpers.
|Preview host||Family farm on the edge of the scenic Trossachs National Park. We run 275 head of sheep and 100 Scottish red deer. The sheep are fattened off grass and the deer calves we sell at weaning. We make our own hay and silage. Jamie Fletcher was Chairman of Central Scotland FWAG (Farmers Wildlife Advisory Group) and we try and promote biodiversity on the farm. We would much appreciate any help we could get from a wwoofer who might be interested in sheep, deer and Scottish life. |

10 hectare, off-grid organic growing site totally surrounded by 100 hectares of woodland near Sheffield. This makes our site unique and pretty special. We have a vegan kitchen, 5 compost toilets, solar panels supplying 12V to a roundhouse, We have a 9 x 30m polytunnel , a large straw-bale barn and 1000 square metre vegetable garden.
We are looking for enthusiastic people who are into working outside....and can contribute in the kitchen, washing up, singing or playing musical instruments around the fire.
We are into permaculture and grow organic veg. We have many tasks , indoors and outside. We will never be short of jobs.
We have a young dog (Jasper) living here and a visiting cat (Scratchy) lots of wild animals including buzzards, kestrels, owls, snakes, squirrels, .
There are lots good walks in the surrounding woodland, we are next to a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The Peak District National Park is close by and for those who prefer city life Sheffield is a large city with 2 universities and is 6 miles away. NON SMOKERS only
|Preview host||We only offer short stays of 7 to 10 days. We prefer wwoofers who have a good conversational level of English and will prioritise those who are interested in Permaculture and self reliance. |
We are a family of three and a dog living by the sea in the east of England, trying to be as self sufficient as possible without being fanatical about it. We structure our garden on organic, Permaculture principles, recycling our rainwater and grey water through a reed bed. Our home uses solar energy and wood for cooking, space and water heating and we generate solar electricity. We grow and eat our own vegetables, fruit, eggs and honey. We are creating this ourselves (DIY) mostly from recycled materials.
We have a piece of ancient woodland and some of our time is spent there managing the wood; logging, planting trees and clearing bracken and brambles. We are a Permaculture Land Learning Center so we are keen to have visitors who are interested in Permaculture. We are now the proud owners of an electric car (Citroen C1 Ev'iE)
|Preview host||We have a one acre site which is being developed using organic and permaculture methods. We keep free range chickens and ducks. We have fruit trees, soft fruit, edible perennials & grow a lot of vegetables. Surplus veg and fruit are made into preserves, low sugar 'jams', juice, wines, dried, stored or frozen. The site is used to teach permaculture and edible landscaping with courses being run on the property from time to time and as such is a centre for education. However, most of the time the garden is not being used for classes and so most of the time wwoofers will be working alone or with one or more wwoofers. There is a huge variety of tasks at any time of year – sowing, planting, weeding, harvesting. sheet mulching, chickens, ducks etc. Inexperience with the tasks is not a problem as we have a great deal of experience but the willingness to work hard and be physically fit is essential. We are close to Cardiff centre and other attractions - Gower, Brecon. Pls look at extended description before applying. |
|Preview host||Looking for friendly, honest, hardworking and sense of humour person to help with gardening – weeding, planting, plus help on the allotment. Also pointing work to stone walls approx 2m high. Other tasks - painting windows, help in the house etc, but no task is something that I can't do - I will only ask for work that I can do, but have no time to do myself! The variety of work to do is weather dependent and, so there is no definite routine to the day other than meals! |
Sometimes my husband needs help on the allotment at the weekends or if he has a particular project. Basically it would help if you were flexible with your time. There is plenty of entertainment locally as well as in town to which to explore. We live by the sea and only 4 miles from the centre of Edinburgh.
On the language front - I only speak very basic foreign languages, but have plenty of dictionaries and sign language! Please note that I don't take WWOOFers in January, August, November and December.
|Preview host||We are an off grid small holding and part of the Ecological Land Co-ops first site. We are living in temporary accommodation (static caravans) while we establish our small holding . We grow medicinal and culinary herbs,and food for ourselves. Helen is a medical herbalist and makes her own medicines. We have a range of different things we need help with and are especially looking for wwoofers with growing experience and skills. We would also welcome a long term wwoofer or pair of wwoofers to stay for the whole growing season. |
|Preview host||We live in a beautiful part of North Yorkshire close to the Yorkshire Dales. Here we sow and grow cut flowers in our garden and our walled garden nearby. At the moment we do everything ourselves, keep things natural and chemical free and love our jobs. We sell to a few local florists, Farmer's markets and through local deliveries. Most of our work is for weddings and we offer a budget Pick Your Own service straight from our garden. Now in our fifth year of growing we are a small operation but slowly expanding and never have enough hours in the garden. |
About us...Barney is a gardener and Clarey was a teacher and now florist. We are both very relaxed, fun and fair and happily welcome you to come and stay in our family. Guests have their own corner of the house with a door to shut at the end of the day and give some privacy. We are really looking forward to meeting new people through the WWOOF scheme and having some help in the garden.
|Preview host||We are a sustainable organic hill farm on Loch Fyne. We have 6 Jersey cows, who are milked for 6 months of the year. The milk is used to make cheese/yogurt/butter in our new onsite cheesery. The production and selling of these are in the early stages. We also have 60 hens, selling the eggs at the road end, along with home made farm produce and crafts everyday. We grow our fruit and veg in the poly tunnels. Our 4 Collie dogs are incredibly friendly and varying degrees of sheepdog qualifications, the youngest is still in training. We also grow and sell flowers in the garden for local charities. |
Great Auntie Lyd is the hardest working member, and 92 years old! We take joy in looking after and supporting everyone on the farm. There is often a lot of people to feed and so there is a massive range of the help needed: in the garden, in the kitchen, making cheese, milking cows, training sheepdogs! We aim to carry out all our small enterprises in a sustainable way.

To engage in the development of programs, both collectively and with related organisations/networks, and via teaching and research activities. To develop a self-sustaining model which can offer a space to share and apply knowledge and creative processes, that are gathered and developed by practitioners involved in addressing sustainable social and eco-change. We are working towards a 2021 completion goal.
|Preview host||We work with 40 acres of land, with garden, woodlands and grazing in a sheltered valley two miles from the sea in north Pembrokeshire. We need help with our vegetable gardens, milking, coppicing our woodlands and generally caring for the land. |
We have a family of jersey cows, sheep, ponies, ducks and hens.
There is always great variety of tasks to help with and our practical guidance in tackling them.
We adopt organic practices and regard the health of this land as a main priority. We seek to make our holding significantly independent in food, fuel and power and share this goal with like-minded neighbours. We practise various healing skills and love to celebrate the Earth’s cycles with music around a fire.
There is a community barn where we have yoga, chi gong, music nights and run small informal healing and creative workshops.
Food is provided for the self-catering flat and some shared meals. We have some beautiful camping spaces. Phone to discuss options.
|Preview host||We live in the Yorkshire Dales, in a big sustainable development house. We also have a straw bale house to lend to vistors. We need help with the vegetable gardens, looking after the chickens, and are now interested in getting help with designing and installing a hydroelectric system, to complement the PV panels and solar water system, already installed. Other work involves stone walls, general building repairs, land drains, gardening, lawn mowing, small building projects etc. |
Visitors have their own small house, web access, all meals etc. Happy family home, Christian, mostly vegetarian. Police check required.
|Preview host||I have a 2acre smallholding on a south west facing slope. It was a derelict nursery when I moved here 20 years ago. I am still developing the site using permaculture principles. I grow a few vegetables that I sell from the garden gate. I get plenty of fruit from an orchard and soft fruit bushes I planted about 12 years ago. I have 10 hens, a cat and a friendly dog, and also 5 allotments which are operated on a land share basis. There is a stand of willow and I am developing a copse from ash trees we've coppiced. I still have plenty of projects and ideas which I need help with including planting a wildflower meadow and sorting firewood. |
|Preview host||Smallholding with 3 bedroom house; 0.1 hectare fruit + veg garden; 0.8 hectare field starting development as orchard and vegetable area; 1 hectare forest. This isn't a commercial operation. It is a move to a more eco friendly lifestyle. It isn't mechanised. Besides the listed hours, some help with food preparation in the evenings is expected. The surrounding area is very rural and scenic within the North Yorkshire Moors National park. The main activity outside of work is walking and cycling. You need to be reasonably fit to take advantage. You can't get here by public transport on a Sunday and I don't have a car to pick you up. |
|Preview host||We are an off grid farm of approximately 100 acres on the Staffordshire Derbyshire border, overlooking the beautiful wooded Churnet valley. The farm is run on organic and permaculture principles and is a mix of woodland, orchard and field crops with a small eco campsite set amongst the woodland and meadows. |
There is a focus on plants and their uses, with research into alternative perennial food crops and the many different uses for the plants around us.
|Preview host||We are 125 acre pastoral farm situated on the outskirts of Ilminster in Somerset, producing 100% grass-fed beef & lamb as well as raising pastured meat chickens (Joel Salatin style) and Christmas geese. We follow Holistic, Regenerative and Organic farming principles to ensure we produce the healthiest meat from the happiest animals whilst also working with nature to enhance and diversify the ecology of our farm. |
Our produce is marketed directly to the end consumer through our website and we hope very soon to be able to launch a small shop on the farm.
Volunteers can learn about our organic and regenerative farming practices and develop skills in animal husbandry, low stress livestock handling, Holistic Management, mob-grazing, pasture-raising poultry, construction projects, direct retailing, social media and digital marketing. We also hope to learn from you and would be delighted to utilise any skills and expertise that you would like to share.
|Preview host||Based on the edge of Brobourne Forest, we make green timber buildings, charcoal, have an orchard and very keen on promoting Biochar. A small Vineyard next door is keeping us busy. can teach green woodworking/coppicing, always expanding our skill set. |
|Preview host||The Centre is a land-based social enterprise. Over the past 13 years the charity has been developing a formerly derelict 23 acre farm as a cultural and environmental centre. The project is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and Welsh speaking communities. |
This year the work will be mainly creating a stone paved garden and paths
The work is physically demanding and the accommodation basic but homely. We can accommodate up to 6 volunteers at any one time. The setting is an extraordinary open maritime landscape of rugged coastline and rolling hills,
. The centre is fairly remote and the nearest shop & pub is at Aberdaron a small coastal village 4 miles away.
|Preview host||Our project is to develop this barren agricultural field (13.5 acres) into a mixed use farm growing cereals, fruits and vegetables, employing principles of permaculture and forest gardening as well as managing the land to encourage biodiversity. Because we are bakers we have been growing old varieties of wheat to use in our breads and cakes. We are just at the beginning of this project. We have had 3 years of harvests of buckwheat, oats and wheat. This year the land is largely fallow, we have planted clover cover crops, but do have test plots of different types of heritage grains. We are also making this spring 6 vegetable gardens to supply ourselves and the bakery which is in London. The farm is certified with the Soil Association and is in conversion to organic. We are currently building a yurt, and have a large bell tent (and other tents for guests). There is no electricity or mains water, but we have compost toilet and are developing the rainwater harvesting facilities for irrigation and drinking. |

|Preview host||We are a mixed livestock farm run by an extended family who have lived on Eday for over 40 years. All members of the family ( from 74 years old to 10 years old) enjoy meeting new folk - especially those that share their interest in & commitment to good husbandry & a love of the wildlife and environment around them. |
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for an adaptable, flexible outdoor person to work in a unique setting, as part of a family team on and around the beautiful Orkney islands of Eday and North Pharay.
Ideally we would be asking for a one month commitment at a time ( from April through to August) from someone who is able to turn their hand to a variety of jobs based around a busy calving and lambing period, but shorter stays are also welcome. For those who enjoy the outdoors and don't mind getting their hands dirty this is the perfect opportunity to experience life in the north isles of Orkney.
|Preview host||we have a 500 year old house in 5 acres and an orchard. 3 miles / 5 km from Honiton station in devon a wonderful part of England . The land is very overgrown . We need to clear the fields and empty some garages . Cut the tree tops, and bring the overgrown garden back to life. We have two mediaeval ponds which we would like to excavate with metal detectors ( maybe we find some treasure !) |
No experience necessary just keen to work outside.
We have a welcoming house and eat excellent food. We have spare rooms . Friends are welcome so they could share a room. We are looking for 4-6 woofers

|Preview host||We are a small eco project offering woodland craft courses and secluded yurt camping based in the High Weald of Sussex. We have 2 yurts and a log cabin. This site 6 acres of which 3.5 acres of which is ancient woodland which requires regular maintenance, coppicing and management. We are creating a Forest Garden. Forest Gardening is one of the oldest forms of permaculture where a myriad of useful (mainly edible) plants are grown within the 7 layers of the canopy. We have several bee hives, half a dozen chickens and a small apple orchard. We have a productive vegetable garden. And we have created a large and abundant wildlife pond. |
|Preview host|| |
Our Registered Organic Small holding is located on 3 sites along the Oxford Canal. We companion crop pumpkins, squash, and maize; in the Autumn we supply high end restaurants in London like The Royal Academy and The National Gallery.
We work the fields up starting in late March/early April. Planting follows with either seeds directly into the furrows or plants brought on by a nursery. Then follows hand and hoe weeding and often times water from a large tank behind a tractor.
We heat and cook almost exclusivly on wood which we process here at the farm with chainsaw, large tractor driven table saw and axe. There is always tidying up to do. We have hens for eggs and wood burners for hot water and drying clothes and cooking. Buildings are mostly 18th century stone barns recycled into useful buildings. Would appreciate some help at any time from April through to harvest.
This experience best suits graduate students who need certification of a real work experience. If you are looking for a holiday please look elsewhere.

|Preview host||Our Farm will be the home of an organic Scottish tea plantation producing a premium quality, loose tea, that will have its own individual taste. We have had positive results from our soil samples and look forward to planting in April 2018. Our dream is to grow an organic tea plantation where all growing and processing is done in Scotland using renewable energy. After 6 years of looking at rural land and properties, we are now in ownership of a quintessentially idyllic Scottish location and we would like to invite wwoofers to learn about organic growing and help sustain it productively. We feel passionate about farming in Scotland and farming a product that is pioneering with careful attention to the environment. |
The tea will be picked by hand and processed using traditional techniques. The picking will be carried out by ourselves. The leaf can picked between February and October allowing the plant to recover before the winter.
We also aim to have a large vegetable garden to share self sufficiency practice and organic growing skills with volunteers.

|Preview host||The smallholding is run by Drew, an author, and Wayne, a textiles teacher. We keep pedigree prize-winning alpacas, which we breed selectively for improved fleece quality. The fleece is processed on site in our purpose-built workshop (a converted shipping container), in which we host spinning/felting/craft workshops. Alpaca trekking with the public provides a further income stream. We are also hoping to build on the use of our animals in therapy on and off site. |
An area of sustainable woodland provides firewood and timber for building.
A glamping site (shepherds huts, yurt, log cabin) is being developed for next year.
Our rainwater harvesting system is due to be extended to accommodate washing larger quantities of fleece in the future..
We have recently planted sustainable long-term pasture with underlying herbs, which is scheduled to be fenced in 2018 to provide further alpaca paddocks.
We also have a garden producing fruit & vegetables.
|Preview host||We are a commercial market garden with the Soil Association symbol and although small grow a wide variety of vegetables, herbs and fruit, delivering veg boxes to the local area.

WWOOfers will receive a very high standard of board and lodging. Most food is home made with salmon and venison featuring on the menu as well as a good range of vegetarian meals. The work in the garden is centered mainly around the raised beds and the greenhouse. Ardross has very stoney soil so raised beds are the best way of growing vegetables for the table. Ardross is a very peaceful and beautiful place, there are no street lights and no public transport. The nearest shops are 5 miles away in the town of Alness. |
|Preview host||I have a Smallholding in beautiful Somerset, close to the Glastonbury Festival site. A small acreage still in development, totally off grid - no WiFi, no TV, Greendayz is a sanctuary for a small number of rescued animals including foster & adopted pigs & free range dogs. There are none rescue animals here too, pigs, sheep and chickens, though the pigs have just left to become sausages. |
A comfortable dry caravan is available for accommodation, it runs off a 12v system and has a fairly rubbish gas fridge. It’s a five berth caravan with a washroom and porta potti. It has a gas fire and cooker so woofers can be as self contained as they wish to be, though I am happy provide meals as I live on site in a converted portacabin.
With two fruitcages, an orchard and a veg patch, there is an emphasis on growing organic fruit and veg here. Using waste from the livestock, I make my own compost and use nettles & comfrey to make fertilisers. I manage my land using no dig methods.
|Preview host||We live on Eday, an idyllic iisland in Orkney, and manage a 2,500 acre farm here, with 160 cows and 700 ewes. |
We are looking for someone who is interested in and enjoys agriculture and the environment, to support us during busy periods.
Specifically we are looking for someone who can do fencing or build stone dykes/walls. We are also interested in someone who likes gardening.
Or, if you don't have these skills but are keen to do child-minding and cooking you would be very welcome too as we always need help with our three year old girl Ola.
We are flexible, hard working and interested in meeting new people.
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who wants to experience life on an Orkney island farm. We will welcome you into our house and introduce you to our local community and friends while you are here. Depending on when you come, we will facilitate visits to other islands or Kirkwall where possible.
|Preview host||We have a smallholding in the hills of West Wales. |
We raise cattle and sheep and keep a few chickens.
We grow our own vegetables using compost from our livestock.
There is always work to do with clearing scrub, fencing, tending stock, mucking the yard and feeding silage in winter.
In the lambing season, when we welcome new life onto the farm, we are especially busy.
We have building projects especially brickwork and rendering.
Anyone with additional IT knowledge is welcome.
Our Christian faith informs everything we do, which means we look upon life as a faith-building exercise as we respect our eco-system and appreciate our place in it.
|Preview host||Our large house is set in the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, made famous by 19th century landscape painter John Constable. Also one of the driest areas of the UK! Our 5 acres consist of part walled vegetable and fruit gardens, polytunnel, a small apple orchard, flower garden, lawns - plus a field and a small area of woodland. Much of the salad and vegetable crops are grown in raised beds. We keep chickens for eggs, a few sheep and occasional rare breed pigs. We have two cats. We only accept non-smokers. |
Stays longer than 4 weeks may be possible outside summer months.
