Even if you can’t live off-grid you can still unplug and go on holiday on an off-grid farm. Get the nitty-gritty off the grid experience, from relying on a solar power setup to tending a vegetable garden.

Drome

Brithdir Mawr is an off-grid farm in Wales. From September onwards, they�ll be offering accommodation to up to 6 volunteers, for 4 to 6 weeks, in exchange for work on the farm. You�ll get to do some weeding, empty the compost toilet, feed the ducks�

Paulianne Farm in France also welcomes visitors, either volunteers who want to help on the farm, or holiday-makers who want to relax and enjoy living off the grid. The farm is situated in the beautiful Dr�me Valley, between Provence and the Alps. You can stay in their self catering gite, sleep in a wood cabin or, for a fully off-grid experience, lay your sleeping bag on the
floor of their yurt�
