Experience Fall WWOOFing in Four Steps

Oct 23, 2023

If you haven’t experienced the beauty of fall on a farm, there’s still time to take the leap! And if you’re looking for a quick getaway that doesn’t take you far from home, you’re in luck. 

Check out these four steps to plan a memorable fall adventure. Keep reading for a list of hosts who have immediate WWOOFer availability!

1. Dive Into the Host Directory 🎃

Our host map is your go-to tool to discover farms close to your location, or wherever you want to WWOOF! As you zoom in, farms will appear. Clicking on the farm’s pinpoint will take you to the host’s profile page where you can see photos, read WWOOFer reviews and learn more about the opportunities the host provides!

2. Take Part in Seasonal Activities 🍎

Fall is a time of bounty. Find farms that offer apple picking, grape harvesting (think winemaking!), pumpkin and gourd harvesting, canning and preserving for winter, or pressing fresh cider. There’s no shortage of fun, hands-on activities right now!

3. Search Your Preferred Visit Dates 📅

Whether you’re looking for a week-long stay or just a day or weekend experience, we’ve got you covered. You can search using the ‘Visit Dates’ filter in the host directory to easily find hosts who offer shorter-term opportunities, allowing you to tailor your adventure to your schedule. The length of stay is up to you!

4. Send a Visit Request – and Pack Your Bags! 💌

Once you’ve identified a potential host, send them a visit request through the website. Click the ‘Send Request’ button on their page and select your desired visit dates. Share your interests, motivations, and what you hope to gain from your visit – hosts love to hear why you’re interested in their farm!

Questions? We’re always here to help! We hope to see you on the farm soon!
