|Description || |
|Bishopstone is a conservation village near to Aylesbury, Oxford and London. The house is set in 2.5 acres of land which is partly agricultural. There is a kitchen garden, woodland, pond, orchard, chicken barn and outbuildings which need to be renovated. We have established substantial composting to support the garden and kitchen garden (Karen is a master composter). The orchard is being extended and can produce prolifically in some years. There is a small 'soft fruit' growing area. Our intention is to build a small spiritually- led community, backed by eco and organic prinicples (the house is eco friendly -ground source heat pump, solar panels etc and we aim to develop the outbuildings subject to planning consent. We have worked closely with the council's Biodiversity team to take advice on planting native hedgerow and more trees. |
we need help with the infrastructure - mainly working in the grounds - clearing overgrown areas, mowing, maintaining and improving the kitchen garden, setting up natural fertilisers and perhaps improving the
The location is superbly positioned, accessible but nice and quiet
|We have a beautiful 47 acre farmstead set on the banks of the River Teifi in West Wales. The holding is run as an organic beef and sheep farm with Hereford cattle and Llanwenog sheep, plus a laying hen flock and extremely productive vegetable garden / glasshouse. We are establishing a shepherds hut / bell tent business this year too. |
Accommodation consists of a well established static caravan in the yard, with lovely views, woodburner and all services provided. The farm itself is at the end of a lane, only 400m from the centre of the village, which has a pub, a shop and a village hall. The village is on bus routes to Cardigan, Carmarthen and beyond.
Work tasks range from the ongoing weeding of veg plot and winter strawing down of cattle, to more skilled work such as green renovation of the stone and slate outbuildings in the farmyard (working with lime) or working to rebuild the farm springwater supply...We could also use a hand in setting up the bell tents and shepherds hut enterprise.
|We have a 90 acre sheep farm within the Pembrokeshire National Park. Our fields are adjoining the cliffs by the Irish Sea with probabely one of the most spectacular views.We are certified organic with Soil Association. |
Throughout the year we typically have lambing time in March/April.
Haymaking time is June/July and we harvest our oats end of August.
Looking for help during these times, but also need help for weeding docks between spring and autumn.
Help for our woodlands needed as well.
|I started converting my two acre field into a medicinal herb garden in 2005. I am interested in the practical use of these herbs and make ointments, tinctures, teas, face creams and bath products. I occasionally run courses in making remedies for personal use and give talks on the subject. I have regular meetings for plant spirit journeying. I have a yurt and a round house and a caravan in the field with basic facilities. Currently I live in the roundhouse myself, and have compost toilets and outdoor shower. I use a caravan as kitchen in the summer and my workshop doubles up as kitchen in the winter. I need help with the plants, which I sell in pots at Stroud Farmers Market and also need help creating the garden. There would also be an opportunity to learn about making the products. I also have a small wood which I intend to work in this summer. Working here is an opportunity to learn about the uses of the herbs, and to explore the Cotswolds. |
|A 2 acre smallholding comprising an 18th century water mill, house, veg/herb/flower gardens, orchard and parkland on the river Arrow.

|We are a 50 acre certified organic farm just north of the city of Hereford, with glorious views to the Malvern Hills and Black Mountains. There are roughly 30 acres of apple orchards, plus around 30 plum trees and a walnut grove of 400 trees, which are still maturing. We are looking for some help this summer (2014) from the end July to end of August and possibly longer for enthusiastic WWOOFers to help pick plums and early season apples. We have a part-time year round worker on the farm, but ability to drive a tractor would be a bonus, or at least a driving licence and a willingness to learn! Accommodation is a fairly basic 2 bedroom flat, with a large kitchen/living room and bathroom. Wifi broadband on site. Family has friendly dogs and there are wonderful woodland walks adjacent to the farm. There is a bus service to Hereford from nearby village. |
PLEASE NOTE WE ONLY NEED HELP FROM END JULY TO SEPTEMBER.
|We are a busy family farm on the west coast of Scotland. We have 3000 hens, 60 cows, a few sheep, a couple of pigs, farm collie dogs, a shetland pony and 4 children aged 7,6,5 and 3. We grow potatoes, carrots, turnips, cabbages and lots of other vegetables and cut flowers. |
The work on the farm varies with the seasons, however there is always egg collecting. Work with the plants, ranges from sowing and planting to weeding and harvesting, we would never expect a wwoofer to weed for 5 hours a day and try to vary the jobs to keep them interesting. Other jobs may include cleaning out hen houses, painting sheds or barns, feeding lambs and calves, tidying the yard, gardening, cutting and bunching flowers.
You will live in our home with the family, we have a spare guest room. Lunches and tea/dinner are with the family. You will have your own living room where you will have breakfast.

|We are a couple at the early stages of developing a smallholding on the edge of Dartmoor. We run a market garden following organic and sustainable principles. We are keen in working with nature to develop systems which allow us to reduce our impact on the earth. |
We're in our first year of developing the holding and have a long list of to-do jobs to get involved with;building a compost-loo; planting trees; mulching; coppicing small woodland area; scything; fencing; general poultry jobs; sowing, picking, etc..
Someone mature, with a degree of independence and happy to work on their own at times would be ideal and you'd need to be happy looking after the animals (hens and ducks) when we are not around. Working hours/days are flexible, depending on tasks and on your plans-we are open to discussing different arrangements to suit all of us. The facilities are basic and shared but are all here. You need to be hardy for the conditions, but will be rewarded by the experience...

|This is a 2.5 acre smallholding in rural Devon. We moved here in late 2010, so things are very much still in development, but we're getting there! Currently there are vegetable beds, polytunnels, soft fruit, culinary and medicinal herb beds and orchards under development. One of the orchards is being underplanted to create a "forage garden", the other is expertly mown by the friendly geese. A herb and veg plant nursery provides the current income, along with eggs and apple juice. The Holding is surrounded by mature trees and hedges so there's a chance to learn and practice traditional devon hedgelaying in winter months. The host is in the process of setting up practice as a medical herbalist - wwoofers interested in herbal medicine are always welcome. |
Current livestock are 8 hens, 8 geese and 4 cats.
|I have ancient derelict woodlands and for the past five years have been managing them myself, making charcoal in the spring and summer and logging in the autumn and winter. The plan is to return cants into rotational coppice, plant an orchard and provide a venue for education in the community. |
I have rescued two Dartmoor ponies and a horse that I have been training up to help extract timber from the woods.
Now I'm at the point where I need help to move the project onto the next stage.
This spring the tree house needs finishing the orchard needs fencing and planting and the veg plot will need attention.
I can provide a 20ft Yurt and or a 16ft Tipi for accomodation
|We live on an upland farm where we raise sheep and cattle. The work is seasonal. Calves are born in the Spring and Autumn. Lambing is our busiest season; it begins in March and continues through the month of April. In June, David clips all the sheep. In the summer, silage is made. There is always animal husbandry work. There is always fencing and tidying up to do on the farm. |
We have installed a biomass burner and a wood burning stove so there is always the work of gathering, chopping and stacking wood. We also have a large, overgrown garden which needs to be planned and started over again as an organic vegetable garden using companion planting. We have about 40 young fruit and nut trees and a small woodland, all of which need tending.
|Currently looking for an enthusiastic couple. Beautiful country house set in 30 acres of woodland and pasture. We have a large walled garden which is part formal garden and part vegetable garden. We grow all our own fruit and veg during the summer. We try to use organic methods of growing when we can and tend our garden using very traditional methods. We are only about 3/4 of a mile from the coastal village of Hopeman which is an easy walk from the house. We need enthusiastic helpers to help us keep our wonderful garden under control. Everything from weeding, planting, grass cutting, strimming, pruning, picking fruit and vegetables, some woodland work, and general help are needed, as is a good sense of humour! We also have a section of our stone wall needing to be re built so if you have wall building skills, we need you! Occasional care of chickens, ponies and dog required. ||View |

|We are looking for a young person with some vegetable gardening skills, that would like to come and look after our vegetable garden. |
This would be a medium/long term commitment, to growing vegetables for the coming year. Starting soon and growing through the season until September.
Knowledge is not essential to start with, but will be gained in the process.
If you would like your own vegetable plot for the next few months and you are able to commit this amount of time. Please contact us.
As well as vegetable gardening there will be plenty of time to help out with many of our other projects.
We live in a large Cornish stone barn set in about an acre of gardens, on the Lizard peninsular, almost as far south west as you can travel on the UK mainland. Overlooking Falmouth Bay, and a few minutes walk to the beach.
The area in which we live has been farmed for many hundreds of years.
|Hidden away near the south Pembrokeshire coast we're living in the middle of a protected wildlife site; a classic slice of old farmland with hay meadows, wetland and woodland full of wildflowers and bird song. As well as looking after the wildlife interest, we also farm a small herd of beef cows, ponies and bees. We've spent the eight years since we've been here building various interesting structures using traditional/ low impact techniques. |
We've had plenty of help from friends along the way but could now use some more regular assistance during the year to assist with a whole range of tasks; animal husbandry to wildflower seed harvesting, cob building to woodland management, improving veg production to fruit picking.
We're particularly keen to hear from people who have skills such as carpentry and stone masonry to help us finish off various building projects around the farm. Most importantly you need enthusiasm and a willingness to get stuck in!
We’re a young family with two little ones, who may have diverted our energies a little in the last few years...
|We bought the farm in January 2012 and are establishing a new mixed smallholding. We have pigs, hens, geese, ducks, rabbits and cows on site. We are just beginning with vegetables, fruit trees and a wood. There is plenty of labouring with fork and wheelbarrow. Accommodation in the house and lodge for volunteers or friends. We are 25 miles from Exeter and two miles from the nearest village. We are not on the national grid for electricity and are "low impact" living. This is beautiful Devon countryside, with big skies, masses of stars and completely peaceful. We have three young children and life is full on so you'll have to muck in and be part of the family. If you're the sort of person who likes to join in the fun and is not wondering when you can clock off then you could have a marvellous and even life-changing time. ||View |

|Our eco farm is a new project of Hare Krishna spiritual community ('Sanctuary of Peace'). It is being developed as a holistic spiritual centre, to help re-establish the sacredness of life. We are making 1st steps, however in a long-term we are aiming for self-sufficiency. |
Being a new project, the eco-farm provides good opportunities for development and initiative. We invite volunteers to share their skills to develop this project. It includes a walled garden, green houses, a meditation garden, energy saving technologies and an ashram for spiritual practices. If you prefer fruits over alcohol, fresh air over cigarettes, our famous vegetarian food over meat and would like to experience a detox retreat then our Farm is for you!
We invite you to experience an alternative lifestyle that benefits body, mind and soul and is based on the motto 'simple living, high thinking'. You are welcome to participate in programmes at Karuna Bhavan such as Kirtan, Mantra Meditation, Musical instrument lessons, Sacred dance, Self-Realization Lectures, Video evenings, festivals, etc.
|We are Dee and Anita. We both have paid work and run the small holding, which is hard work but very rewarding. We are pretty easy going, for example with work times. All we ask is that volunteers do not take advantage and aim to fully complete a task and work safely taking our advice. |
We try to produce our own food and so keep geese, chickens, ducks and sometimes pigs. We hatch our own eggs. We garden using organic principles in our garden, raised beds and poly tunnel. We always need help with the garden and animals. We can make butter, soft cheeses and make our own sausages etc. We are happy to teach volunteers these skills.
|The Estate is a wonderful old bit of Devonshire countryside, over 5000 acres is farmed by various tenants and some of the land is Organic producing milk and beef. |

I run the Estate as a working game shoot where I look after everything from Woodland management, Cover crops, Pheasants and vermin control just to name a few.
We eat our own meat through the season with game bird being bountiful in the winter and other game meat through the year. The operation is in its infancy and we would welcome like minded people who love the countryside and are open minded to game shooting and hunting to come and help on the land with various jobs.

This is true vegan food, bio-available and packed with nutrients. all our seaweed is picked and dried in the sun to develop the umami taste, then shipped off for milling and packing.
|My husband Michael and I need help to recover a once well-loved garden has become a little wild. Originally the home of the national collection of old dianthus (pinks and carnations) the garden is full of treasures and its distinctive character has drawn many visitors over the years. I can offer good accommodation, good cooking and a warm welcome to anyone who would like to work alongside us to bring this magic place back to its full beauty. The aim would be to re-open to visitors and develop the garden's potential as a source of peace and delight to others. ||View |
|We live on the stunning Morvern peninsular in a Castle. It is remote, wild country. We (Jane and Hugh) work from home. We have 2 daughters who are home some of the time. We need help with clearing and thining some woods, preparing wood for storage etc and gardening. At present our gardening is mostly slash and burn! Keeping on top of grass with a strimmer and helping set up and start a vegetable plot including preparing the soil etc. Also helping finish off a shed we have built and a bridge. We also have a boat that needs some work on. |
Accomodation is in your own room at the House with access to a small kitchen and bathroom.
Idea if you have a car or at the very least you have a driving licence (clean !). If you have your chain saw qualification that would be an enormous help and quad bike experience.

We are an extended family under the same roof but allowing each other personal space,most members work outside of the village.
There are infinite opportunities of things to do but it works better with a short first stay and a minimum of two WWOOFers. I am not always available to work with you. Sometimes possible for overseas WWOOFers to stay longer by arrangement. Very small village, nearest shops 3 miles.
