We have had a small number of WWOOFers and HelpXers with us at the farm.
One thing that we have found interesting is the number of farmers that just use these guys as cheap labour for weeding or planting. Those farmers then complain about WWOOFers not being motivated.
We think you get as much out of a person as you put in. Which means that if a WWOOFer leaves here without having a solid grounding in most of the aspects of how we farm and why, as well as feeling appreciated, well fed and part of the family, then we would consider we have failed that person.
If you are considering coming and staying with us, please note that we are non-smokers and omnivores.
