To work on a cattle farm, horse ranch or sheep fishery is necessary to have special skills and knowledge. However, you can work on a volunteer basis through organizations such as Help Xchange or WWOOF, which allow you to work not for money but in exchange for food and shelter. Volunteers generally work 3-5 hours a day and live with local families, which undoubtedly plays a big role in trying to plunge into the strange life of a province.
