    Full Property Description

    PLEASE READ: We suffered some major trauma through 2017 and Tinker has PTSD, so we are looking for WWOOFers with a high level of maturity, including emotional maturity.

    We would prefer WWOOFErs aged 25+.  No need for great English, but a willingness to communicate well is essential. Drivers licence and ability to drive a manual car is a big bonus.

    We prefer communication by email or via the WWOOF site. In return, we offer a cosy home, a welcoming environment with our family of two.

    We eat very well (as much as you like) and if you like to cook, we have an extremely well equipped kitchen. We work about 5 hours a day – with more hours some days with full days off.

    Please note that not all our farm activities are possible all through the year. Some are specific to a certain month. You can check with us what is happening at the moment, or if you have a particular interest

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    Our vegetables and fruit trees are grown organically. As far as possible, we raise our animals organically, however, if medical intervention will alleviate an animal’s suffering but not be organic, we choose the treatment.

    We make fertiliser, mulch, various forms of compost, and have a worm farm.

    Our house is heated solely with waste wood, and we have solar panels for our electricity. We always have room for improvement but we do right by the planet as best we can

    Special Conditions

    As mentioned previously, we suffered some major trauma through 2017 – Tinker still has PTSD as a result of this – so we are currently only looking for WWOOFers with a high level of maturity, including emotional maturity. Please indicate that you understand this when you contact us.

    We have a meat based diet – meat raised and killed on our farm. Any special diet needs – please discuss with us in advance, and we may need assistance with all meals.

    Please also let us know if you have any allergies or other conditions which may be relevant to life on our farm.

    All WWOOFers must have valid insurance / travel insurance for accidents please!

    Not all of our farm activities are possible all year round, so check with us if you are especially interested in one of them.
