NEW ZEALAND: Farm in Exchange for Food and Accommodation

Experience life on a New Zealand farm.  After purchasing a $21.20 (NZ$25) booklet, you will be able to select from some 350 farms scattered across the country.  In exchange for you work, your host will provide you with food and accommodation.  No additional fees are required.  There are many types of farms to choose from including sheep, beef, dairy, goat, deer, and horse farms.  Many require no experience, though you will be helping on average 4 to 6 hours per day.  In addition to farming, hosts may request that you participate in cooking, housework, gardening, or childcare.
