WWOOF

The WWOOF organization began in the UK in the 1970's. WWOOF or "World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms", is a network of organic farms all over the world that offer room and board in exchange for work on their farms. There is a nominal membership fee to become a 'WWOOFer' and receive their printed farm directory, also having access to all the farm web-listings.

We do take on seasonal WWOOFers when there is the right fit. We would love to be able to accommodate those looking for a week or two on a farm, but have found it to not serve either party. It's hard to get a good feel for a farm in such a short time frame, or to learn any skills of value. To be completely honest, most short-term WWOOFing experiences are going to consist of grunt work. We want to be able to pass on knowledge that is helpful to those who want to use it, and live it.
