Farming opportunites
« on: October 11, 2012, 08:35:24 am »
Hey everyone!  :1hug:
My husband (a mechanical engineer) and I (a teacher) have decided to do farming in NZ and follow our dream!

In our many many months of research, here are some links for any of you that are interested in looking into it :)
There are huge advantages if it is something you would consider, such as quiet farm-living, free housing for the family etc but it is obviously long hours and very hard work.  :D

Farming positions vary from Dairy Assistant, to management roles, to herding etc...and even though it may not pay extremely well when you are starting out, it is a start   :whistle:

For general info etc, have a look at

THIS journey is worth every bit of blood and tears...
