Working Visitors and WWOOFers
We take volunteers to help us with our work, in exchange for food and stay.
It's best if you arrive on Saturday or Sunday, so that the working week is Monday to Friday.
There may be 4-6 volunteers here in the summer, but maybe only one or two at other times.
Sometimes you will eat with your host, but usually you will prepare your own meals in our Visitor's Barn.
The house is quite busy, so volunteers normally use it only for the internet.
Accommodation is either in a small caravan, the Visitor's barn, or camping.
We can provide a tent for you if you need one.
There are two options for volunteers coming to Keveral Farm (this info may change).
1) A short stay of 1-2 weeks, hosted by 2-3 community members. You will sometimes work on personal projects (including vegetables and fruit), and sometimes on communal work. The working day is 7-8 hours including breaks. This option is usually only available in the summer.
2) A longer stay of 4 weeks or more, working for Sean, who grows vegetables and leaves (including micro-leaves) outdoors and in polytunnels, on a large scale. You will stay at Keveral, but most of the work is 3 miles away. This is serious wwoofing, with early starts (7.00 in the summer) and often long days. Sean's business has grown rapidly, selling a lot to posh restaurants, and he employs about 20 people. This would suit people who may want to start their own organic business, or who just like the challenge of hard work ! This option is available for most of the year.
You will have days off and free time for exploring and relaxing - usually two days off for each five days worked.
If you wish to volunteer, please email , saying something about yourself, your previous experience wwoofing or related work, why you would like to visit, and when.
We try to reply to everyone, but we cannot take everyone.
