|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, 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 and making outdoor oak benches, door and windows
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||Our hillside smallholding is close to the town of Hay on Wye famous for books. The countryside is beautiful. Our smallholding was once part of the Baskerville Estate. We have a variety of animals- ducks, hens, horses, sheep, dogs and cats. We grow our own vegetables, fruit and salads. Since looking after a very sick and elderly relative recently we have got behind in our work and need to crack on now- re-establishing our vegetable plots, and in particular working in our ancient woodland. |
We aim to grow as much as we can using organic and permaculture methods- the latter is a new concept for us.
This is Wales, remember, and our house is in the hills. It can be wet and grey even in the summer! It is often windy.
|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
There is internet - availabe.
It is a very beautiful place to be.
All the woofers we had in the past had a great time with us.
|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 is the home of an organic tea plantation. We'd like to invite wwoofers to learn about the organic growing and processing of tea and vegetables. We are committed to nurturing a productive and sustainable ecosystem and are careful to consider the environment in all operations. We think it's important to promote small scale farming in within the current industry landscape in the UK and enjoy growing an organic beverage that is pioneering in Scotland. |
The tea is picked by hand and processed using traditional techniques. The farm is run on renewable energy from our micro hydro system which we installed when we moved in.
We also have a large poly tunnel where we are beginning to grow vegetables and floral infusions. We have plans to regenerate the woodland and to grow fruits. Islay was brought up on Wheems Organic Farm in Orkney where her family grow a wide range of organic vegetables for the local market.

We are involved with local Biodynamic farms and want to re-start the old vegetable garden here and restore the gardens. Our herd of horses runs free on a paddock paradise system which we run organically; planting herbs and allowing the horses to graze and roam freely along trackways.
An exceptionally beautiful 16th Century rural farm yet we are close to historic towns of Royal Tunbridge Wells and East Grinstead (easy bus and safe bike access). From these towns there regular are trains to London (50 mins journey time). There are pubs in local Villages Withyham, Hartfield & especailly Forest Row which has many amenities; organic shops, crafts, restaurants, entertainment and loads more as also a Steiner school, farms and Colleges all accessible by a very safe bike ride along old disused railway line.
We need help to manage the 9 horses, restore gardens, orchards, land and buildings. Woofers who stay 3 months or more can learn a little Horse Whispering!
