Agriculture is an important industry in Chile. The evergreen lake region offers ideal conditions for agriculture and livestock farming. The central Mediterranean region, on the other hand, has specialized in the cultivation of fruit and wine.
You have the opportunity to lend a hand in different farms, such as Breeding farms, livestock farming, self-sufficient farms, cattle or sheep farms, farms with arable farming or milk production.
