AVBS2011: Farm Placement

This placement will provide a hands-on experience of a farming or local rural enterprise and the surrounding environment. Students can choose to attend any form of farming enterprise e.g. dairy, poultry/egg, beef, wool/sheepmeat, agriculture (cropping), horticulture (fruit/vegetable), aquaculture, horse studs, insects etc. The selected farm must be commercially viable, that is, the major income must be generated from the farm enterprise (i.e. not a hobby farm, farm stay, hotel/venue, etc). There are a number of farms listed on SONIA, however students are welcome to find and apply to add new farm sites to the database.
