When I studied in UK 14 years ago, I remember the school notice board has listed many summer jobs to work in farm. It can a strawberry farm in England or a farm in Denmark to collect eggs. The summer jobs look attractive to me especially for the experience to work in a farm. I am always hope I can be a wilder person by getting more to the nature. I did not take action at that time and end up I worked in a local grocery shop in the outskirt of Oxford. The summer job earned me the pocket money to travel Europe at the end of my degree study so I never feel regret about it. The little desire to try the farm life keep remain hidden in my mind until now since then.
It is during one of the sleepless night. I decided to read the National Geographic Traveller Magazine and I found there was an article introduce about Homestay. Most of the websites offer homestay are not free but there is one free site that catch my eye. My little hidden desire to work in farm may come true again because the free site is a about Agriculture Tourism. Not to waste anymore time, I opened my notebook and accessed to my blog. I decided to list the site in my blog to share.
Agritourismworld is a free website for people who would like to list their farm for available activities. You can choose the farm from different catogories and find the farm stay you would like to join.
