Our farm is situated on the top of the National Trust's Brockhampton Estate with stunning views in all directions. It is a family run working farm home to James and Victoria Hawkins along with Fraser just back from Uni. We have a unique location with stunning views, traditional farm buildings, ancient woodland, tree-lined watercourses and orchards. Come and explore different parts of the farm and share our passion of farming and the countryside. Warren Farm is committed to sustainable agriculture and during the past ten years we have been introducing wildlife habitats across the farm. For example by restoring hedges and creating broader margins around all arable fields and currently developing several wetland habitats using the natural water courses on the farm.
The farming consists of arable beef and sheep along with many diversification projects.

Hi,
We are Welsh speaking family, situated almost on the shore of Bala Lake, the biggest natural lake in Wales in the south of Snowdonia National Park and yes, the surrounding area is stunning. Bala is within walking distance and is a small market town with a few shops and a leisure centre which has a swimming pool.

We live on an acre of land that has woodland a stream and a garden which is managed organically and we have one permanent and one temporary polytunnel to grow our food. We have chickens, a dog and a few cats. We are on a very low income so our life style may seem quite simple to you. We use as little electricity and water as possible, fell our own wood for heating and our diet is mostly simple, homemade but nourishing.

Our property is vegetarian and is the ethos of how the land is managed and how we live.
Accommodation is a small 4 berth caravan which can accommodate 2 adults and two young children. There is no electricity or water to the caravan, the simple li... more inside

We are a small, family run organic fruit and vegetable farm in the heart of the Norfolk fenland. We believe that farmers should work with nature, not against it, to produce the freshest, most delicious local produce possible. For us this means never using nasty chemicals or artificialities, relying on nature’s own remedies and rhythms to grow healthy, full flavoured fruit and vegetables.

The 25 acre farm grows over 100 different lines of fruit and vegetables throughout the year.
Any one week we take at least 25 lines to Farmers markets. These range from Apples, Plums and Pears to Potatoes, Lettuce and spinach.
We have 2 acres of orchard and approx 3/4 acre of poly tunnels. The rest is outside cropping.
There is always somthing to do, planting, weeding, harvesting or preparing for the many farmers markets that we attend.

I am setting up a wild life haven in 2 acres of land, with woodland and ponds, recently renovated the property and a barn as a holiday let, and have both decorating and gardening work to be done. Llys Ifor "found" me in March 2016 and it has a magic which I want to share with people and give a welcome to folk from around the world. An ex-stage manager who is now a life coach, this new adventure in the mountains, with a river and views of the sea, has been spectacular for me and the small community of Nebo have been welcoming and supportive while I lived in a caravan. Now the renovations are nearly complete I have a lovely home and a holiday cottage and need help with the landscape and art projects and general maintenance and upkeep.

Help needed with gardens, forestry, from planting to on-site timber production, animals, construction and general help around the farm including some cooking, preserving and other kitchen and domestic tasks. We usually ask for around six hours a day, five days a week, however this is flexible. Some tasks are quite physically demanding. We tend to work shorter hours at these. Lighter tasks are always available if you feel it is too much for you.

We prefer that you plan on staying with us a full two weeks if you have no relevant experience. This is to ensure that both us and you gain from your stay. Shorter stays are fine if you have relevant previous experience.
All our work on the land is organic, permaculture used as our basic method.

Communally run 80-acre organic farm. We eat, work & make decisions together whilst sharing a large Welsh stone farmhouse and its outbuildings. We aim to live as lightly as we can with deep consideration and respect for our planet, each other and ourselves. All our power is produced by sun, wind, and water; we grow as much of our food as we can, we use our tractor for carting and haymaking, goats for milk and cheese and aspire to live life slowly enough to enjoy the rich pleasures of this glorious land.

Unfortunately, we can't accept volunteers flying just to spend time with us as the environmental cost of flying far out-weighs the benefit of your visit. Please see our website and Facebook page for more info.

During our volunteer weeks, we offer meals and accommodation for about 5.5 hours of helping a day Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and about 3.5 hours work on a Wednesday morning. At the weekend, and on Wednesday afternoon, your time is your own, to explore the surro... more inside

**We have space from 19th March for helpers who would like to stay for about two weeks.**

We keep poultry and rabbits and have a vegetable garden at our house in a small village on the Quantock Hills. We are also involved with our family horticultural nursery and smallholding two miles away, where our family also has beehives. We sell eggs and breed and sell hens and rabbits. We run courses in poultry-keeping from beginners to advanced levels (that helpers are welcome to participate in). We have an interest in sustainable/local food production and are starting to experiment with perennial vegetables and how chickens can be integrated in to a system. We kill and prepare our own chicken for the table.

We are looking for help for about 28 hours a week, spread to be mutually convenient.

After being shown how and becoming confident we like helpers to take responsibility for feeding and watering the rabbits and chickens in the morning, most mornings. This usually takes about an h... more inside
