I had a nice experience working for A3 Farm, planting Broccolis, Silverbeet, and lettuce! It was my first time working at a farm, and as I’ve lived my entire life in a big city I thought it would be hard for me to adapt, but I ended up enjoying every single minute there, especially the fact of being outdoor surrounded by nature, animals, and getting to know people from all over the world.
If you work with a strong and awesome team, you work better.
I have been in New Zealand for a year and a half and working on the farm for 7 months. My current job on the farm is the job I liked the most here. Since I started working there, I discovered how much I enjoy being in contact with nature and how being outdoors changes my day. I never imagined working with something like this, but that is the idea of an exchange programme, doing things that we never imagined doing and that today we cannot live without. After you start working on a farm, you get to know the reality of the countryside and experience a simpler, nature-oriented life. On the farm I have the opportunity to learn English practicing with native speakers and have a cultural exchange with the locals. I made countless friendships there, friendships that I will carry for life.
