What is a WWOOF-Verified host?

If a host is listed as verified, this means that a WWOOF representative confirmed that the host is following these five requirements*:

  1. Practicing organic or sustainable growing methods
  2. Providing an educational experience and sharing knowledge with WWOOFers
  3. Providing adequate food for three meals per day
  4. Providing suitable and sanitary living accommodations
  5. Asking WWOOFers to help for a maximum of half a day (between 4-6 hours), or 20-30 hours per week

The goal is for all hosts to be verified by a WWOOF representative to confirm that WWOOF’s guidelines are being met and that the host provides an educational experience in a safe and comfortable environment for visiting WWOOFers. Once a farm has been verified, the host will receive a searchable “WWOOF-verified” badge on the website.

If you have questions about obtaining verification for your farm, please contact us.

* Not all countries use the WWOOF-Verified program and some may have additional requirements, so check with individual countries to find out more.
