Accommodation Type: Separate Building, BYO Accommodation
Beautiful 300 acre farm which we run wool sheep, alpaca, house cows, horses, chickens and bees. Although we've been farming all our lives, we've only been on this farm for a few years so we are still setting up.
In addition to looking after the farm and animals we are growing vegetables and setting up an orchard. We love our farming lifestyle and are always looking to enjoy and improve our farm.
Its great having people come and enjoy the farm with us and join in the lifestyle. We are keen to explore ideas such as care farming and social enterprises.
We have a nice new self contained donger set up with kitchen, toilet, bathroom, aircon for you to stay in or your welcome to bring your own caravan etc.

I think WWOOF is a good way to make yourself useful and get to know about permaculture, local life, people and the country at the same time.
I got very much interested into permaculture during my first WWOOF stay and I would be happy to start my own veggie/fruit garden when I get back home.
