6 Months Working on a Farm in Sweden

6 Months Working on a Farm in Sweden

Half a year in rural Sweden is one of many programmes arranged each year by AgriVenture, an organisation that offers those aged 18 to 30 the chance to travel and work on a farm, in agriculture, horticulture or home management in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA and Japan.

Participants can get under the skin of the country by joining the workforce and learn new skills. Rather than simply visiting as a tourist this is a chance to be welcomed into the Swedish lifestyle.

Farm work placements in Sweden are usually to family worked farms where other activities, such as forestry or contracting, and even tourism, are combined with the core industry. Management of the landscape, biodiversity and cultural heritage values are also often integrated with the agricultural production and organic farming is common.

AgriVenture is run by the International Agricultural Exchange Association (IAEA), a non governmental, non profit membership organisation that has hosted over 30,000 people on farm work placements since 1965.

There is a substantial fee to take part but benefits include a guaranteed placement, including visa, flights, insurance, 24 hour emergency support, and a trainee allowance from which your board, lodging and taxes will be deducted.

The departure date for the six month programme is November 1, with applications due by August 31.

    So, basically you have to pay in order to work as a simple FIELD WORKER in Sweden? I haven’t heard a bigger bull*hit. Since when TWT became a slave market?

          You’re welcome, Stacey. One of the good things about this programme is that it is open to Americans and a few other non EU nationalities.
