We live on a 27 acre smallholding in south west Wales. We have been here since January 2019. The farm was neglected for almost 40 years so we have a huge amount of infrastructure work to do. Although we weren't really ready for animals - no livestock fencing!! - in our enthusiasm, we went ahead and got some.... 10 goats, 15 chickens, 2 cockerels, 2 pigs and we already had 2 ponies. Our intentions are to become as self sustaining as possible, producing our own milk, cheese, eggs, meat, vegetables, wool, fibre. The work we are currently focusing on is fencing, gates, re-establishing the polytunnel, tree cutting (and, later, re-planting) for timber, firewood and woodchip (for animal bedding). We also need to put a new roof on the barn, build field shelters for the horses and goats, build new barns to accommodate animals in winter and store hay/feeds and restore a derelict cottage.... the list goes on and on! We also want to create some man made beauty around the place.

We have a cou... more inside

(Very sorry but canít take volunteers just now . Sending best wishes and hope for all of you)
This is a stone farm house and outbuildings situated with five acres of sheltered and peaceful land in a valley in the hills. Surrounded by mature trees and bordering a mountain stream, we have a forest garden, vegetable beds, polytunnel, ponds, coppices, meadows and woodland. Sheep graze part of the land whilst some meadow is left to encourage wildflowers. Wildlife is a priority and permaculture informs the management of land and lifestyle here. The owner is home-based and usually available to work alongside volunteers.
Guests and volunteers are accommodated in the farmhouse, or in a cabin or may camp in summer months. People sometimes come here for retreat, enjoy the tranquility, breathe exceptionally clear air and find silence interrupted only by birdsong and the sounds of wind and river.
Volunteers are asked to help with the daily and seasonal activities. These might be gardening... more inside

There is also work in the garden, where we have an organic vegetable garden. Also have work working on a garden project at a nearby house with a large, interesting garden.

This is 43 acres of ancient semi natural woodland in the beautiful Usk Valley in South Wales. I started with a degree in rural resource management, and spent time in my twenties as a green wood chair maker. I later worked tree surgery and traditional woodland management with people living and working in woodland. For the last few years I have made my livelihood from constructing timber frame buildings and building tree houses. The project is born from a childhood dream to find a way to be in the woods, I am now using traditional management techniques and progressive permaculture, to promote and facilitate sustainable rural living. This is a pristine piece of woodland, rich in ecological diversity.

The aim is to use the land to educate people about the importance of connecting with the earth and sustainable woodland management/ livelihoods .

I have managed the land here for 12 years. I built a traditional timber frame barn from Douglas fir that stands where the trees it's made ... more inside

We have a lovely small holding which is half broadleaved woodland, half pasture, with a stream running right by the house, 2 ponds, large veggie garden, orchard, greenhouse, sheep and dogs! (See photos below of a 2011 help-xer with one of our lambs and 2013 help-xers cleaning out the pond!)

We would like help with woodland management, gardening, preparation and maintenance of grazing land, weeding, planting, harvesting, general maintenance, perhaps light decorating, ironing when it's raining....and whatever crops up! There may occasionally be some work with our sheep and sometimes looking after our adorable dogs! We expect some help around the house such as washing up after dinner and perhaps cooking the occasional meal.

We offer accommodation in a refurbished 16th century cottage which is connected to the main house (see photo of room below). This will mean help-xers have their own sleeping & bathroom area tho' occasionally we may have other guests staying. You will s... more inside
