In my previous question about looking for "work for accommodation" in South Korea, the subject of
WWOOF (Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms or Willing Workers on Organic Farms) came up (▷home, ▷wikipedia).
It turns out that I've come across a few people who've had negative experiences with WWOOFing as well as those who've had great experiences. Another thing that might put people off is the fee to "join" or "register" or whatever they call it. You don't get access to the list of participating places until you pay this. I noticed that the fee for the Korean WWOOF was $50
USD. That's quite a bit for many of us, especially when you're not 100% sure what you're really getting.
Anyway I'm sure that there are similar places where you can stay and possibly help work on a farm in exchange for food and accommodation which are not affiliated with WWOOF so I'm wondering Are there any other ways to find such farmstay and similar opportunities around the world?
