Farming Gap Year Travel

If you're looking to spend your Gap Year getting your hands dirty in the countryside, a farming job could be just what you're looking for. There a many options open to travellers wanting to experience the agricultural sector in a different country. Cattle farming on a ranch in Australia, Sheep farming in New Zealand, fruit picking on a French Vineyard and Organic farming in South Africa are just some of the opportunities available.

One of the fantastic things about spending your Gap Year on a working farm is the opportunity to work outdoors, well away from the 9-5 drag. The landscape, climate and environment may be completely different from what you're used to, but there's no better way of experiencing a region or a country than spending every day working in the countryside.

Farm Work Projects

Of course its not all relaxing rides on horseback through the bush, the work can often be tough and physical, the hours can be long, and you'll be expected to 'muck in' with the regular employees, but those not afraid of hard work will be rewarded with the chance to explore the country and all it has to offer. Don't forget to let your employer know if you're a competent horse rider, have experience of tractor driving or other agricultural equipment, or you have any other relevant skills, as this may lead to further opportunities or an extended stay.
