Farm stays are growing in popularity a lot in Australia. You can choose what kind of farm you want; cattle, sheep, corn plantation and so on. Also, if you want to, you can participate in the farm's daily work helping the owner with their tasks. If you feel lazy, and just want to relax and enjoy the calm view that's also allowed!. One of the greatest things about a farm stay is the food, usually produced on the farm and with a taste that will stay with you forever. The best thing is: the price includes 3 meals a day!. The owners will be your hosts and are always ready to talk about your culture and learn from theirs. Prices starts at A$ 180 for 3 days and 2 nights. Normally, the farmers will pick you up to the road that takes you to the farm, or at a bus station in the town. Again, tourist information all over Australia has a list of farms in the region that can host you.

Basically There are to types of Farmstay:

Type1: A real working farm where the main deal is with the farm production, and guests are a mere income complement. Some owners like to have company or someone different to talk with. Some of these farms lately became administrating short courses where the guest participates in the production process leaning a task. (example: How to milk a cow). You will find farms offering this type of situation in all areas of production and it is a good opportunity to learn things that we have no idea when living in the big city. For those already farmers in the origin country, it is a great opportunity to compare processes, exchange knowledge and have a good chat.

Type 2: Cottage Farms usually don't sell products commercially. Some may have a garden, chickens, horses, pigs, fish pond, or other features, but they are basically enjoyment places about nature. They are a very good option to relax and interact with the environment. Some owners are now retired and they love to receive someone to have a chat or kick the annual budget a little bit. The location of these farms usually is the main attraction, some in valleys with waterfalls, lakes, or beautiful forests around.

Prices varies a lot from  A$ 50 per night to A$ 200 depending of location, luxury, or what is included in the pack. If you want to check farmstays been offered, check this list here. For those who like nature and farm, it is an excellent accommodation option, with some not far from the urban centres.
