World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF)

Description

WWOOF UK holds a list of organic farms, gardens and smallholdings, all offering food and accommodation in exchange for practical help on their land. These hosts range from a low impact woodland settlement to a 600 hectare mixed holding with on-site farm shop, cafe and education centre. Hosts do not expect you to know a lot about farming when you arrive, but they do expect you to be willing to learn and able to fit in with their lifestyle.

All of the hosts must sign a declaration stating that they are farming using ecologically sound methods. Some are also certified organic or biodynamic by national bodies. Certification is an expensive process and only really necessary for those growers who wish to sell their produce to the general public with the 'organic' label. WWOOF do not discriminate between those who are farming organically for sale and those who are farming ecologically for self sufficiency.

The list of hosts is available by joining WWOOF UK for a membership fee (£20 single membership, £30 joint).
