Hello WWOOF!

My name is Olivier, I am 26, I am French and I have just finished a year of wwoofing in the UK. I spend 4 months in a farm producing eggs near birmingham, and then 3 months in a farm producing vegetables near Brighton and finally 3 months in a farm producing meat from cows near Glasgow. Then I came back 3 months in the farm with the vegetables to work as an employee. It was an amazing experience for me, I learnt a lot about farming, about english, but also (and mainly?) about myself and about living with others and for that I wanted to say THANK YOU!! I couldn’t have done that without this amazing wwoof organisation! 

Here are some pictures of my experience
