We are a 26 acre traditional smallholding in mid-devon. We are renovating the land, which has been largely unused for a century. We keep rare breed sheep, goats, and chickens, and hope to include pigs shortly.

We have a large ongoing task in repairing / cutting back the hedge rows, with a view to repariing the banks, re-planting the gaps, and being able to lay the hedges in future years. We've also begun planting a new wood copse in one field, and plan to plant a traditional orchard in another.

One thing we have struggled with is getting our veg gardening up to scratch. We have experience and enthusiasm, but not enough hours in the day!

Whilst not being registered organic, we self-impose most of that system. We do treat the animals with medicines, but on an evidence-based basis.

Our over-arching approach is one of sustainability.

We would ideally like to find a person or a couple who was prepared to stay for several months of the spring/summer/autumn, and help with cr... more inside

*April/May placement*

Hi we’re Adam and Laura, we have a little boy called Harry and an English Pointer called Ottie. We currently live with Adams parents on a lovely smallholding, named Wickwood in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. Wickwood consists of 10 acres of mainly fields and woodland, a farmhouse, cottage style gardens, vegetable patch, and is home to around 20+ sheep and numerous chickens.

We’re just in the process of refurbishing a large barn conversion, which will be our future home and also includes an attached holiday cottage.
We’re looking for one of two helpers, with building or decorating experience to help us complete the house, which should take another 4 weeks.

There are also gardens, woodland and an orchard which we hope to bring back to life and may even turn into a Glamping site.
Accommodation and food will be provided in return.

We are very sociable people and enjoy other peoples company.

We’re keen to find helpers who have skills and... more inside

Hi Wanderers,

Brynmelyn Bach is a lovely little patch of land that still needs a fair bit of work. We run a microdairy where the goats and cow keep their young and animals that would usually be slaughtered are retired to a conservation grazing herd. We sell raw milk, yogurt and cheese.

We are a bunch of scroungers and do it yourselfers looking to make a living off the land. So we are looking for someone with a sense of adventure and an appreciation for the rustic. I work as a way of supplementing income while we set up so you'll also need a strong work ethic and be happy to occasionally manage yourself. You won't be lonely, my partner is an artist working on the land and we have lots of people who come and go.

Now for the best bit we live on a double decker bus that we've converted into a farmhouse. There is a bedroom in the bus for you to stay in or you're welcome to stay in the tipi when there are no guests. Communal areas are shared and we have a compost loo outside. ... more inside

We are a friendly family who, 4 years ago moved to our smallholding in a beautiful spot at the foot of the Cheviot Hills in the Scottish Borders. We are starting from scratch turning a bare field into an organic veg and fruit plot and home for animals. We need help with all sorts of things: digging and planting; erecting stock-fencing; building a tree house; growing food from seed; maintaining the veg plot and hedging; painting the inside and outside of the house; looking after the dogs and chickens; help around the house. If you can turn up, fit in and help out then we can look after you!! We had Helpxers for the past few years: it was a great experience and we got loads of jobs done and made new friends. We're a pretty laid-back lot (except the labradoodles who are pretty nuts!). Have a look at our references if you are interested in coming here.

September requirement

1 or 2 people or couple required for splitting & stacking & wheelbarrowing firewood (up 2 or 3 steps with plank over it) from front garden to back garden (about 35 metres). Work is outside. So you need to be comfortable with being outside, enjoy physical work, and have a normal degree of everyday fitness. Being tall or male or young does not necessarily mean you will find wood processing easy. You need to be able to work consistently and pace yourself. Our best wood processing helper was a mid-western American woman in her late 20's who had grown up doing it.

Sarah & Guy are a friendly couple in late forties with twin 7 year olds, living in comfortable, spacious house in Headington a suburb of Oxford City. We can offer internet, own largish twin room (sharing if there are two of you), good home prepared food (smoothies for breakfast), we will do your clothes washing and return it dried to you. There may be other (possibly international) guests staying... more inside

We have availability Unfortunately we cannot cater for vegetarians or special diets. Also you must be able to work on your own initiative and have a basic understanding of the English language.
We are looking for a person or a couple who could stay in a bedroom in the main house. We would like them to stay one to two weeks, although longer stays are possible if we get on well. References are essential, either personal or employment if you don't have previous Helpx experience.

We ask for 5 to 6 hours work on 5 days a week in return for all meals and accommodation. The hours are flexible to enable any attraction visits or sightseeing you may wish to do.
This is a working smallholding with a mix of Rare Breed Pigs, Alpacas, Chickens and a large worm breeding unit. There is also a butchery and farm shop where we produce and sell pork produce so it may not be a suitable helpx experience for vegetarians or people with strict religious beliefs.
