Room and board in a separate communal living with self contained kitchen and bathroom. Sleeping gear provided. Beautiful organic food, much of which comes from the farm- meat, eggs, dairy (try your hand at milking), and the garden, that you forage. Cooking is up to you and your fellow woofers – the most amazing meals come from collaboration and creativity with the farm produce.
We host from 4-6 volunteers from October until March.
Please bring appropriate work gear especially shoes, a pocket knife and a sense of humour. Look forward to meeting you!
