Hi, and thanks for your interested in becoming a farmstay host with Lets Homestay!

Arrivals and Departures​Let’s Homestay operates a variety of farmstay programs in the Bay of Plenty and Waikato. One of these programs is to cater for International student farmstays.

Student Groups Farmstays

Students are predominantly aged from 13 to 18. During their visit to New Zealand a 2 or 3 night farmstay will be included in their itinerary. 3-4 students stay at each farm depending on the group’s request and size.

During the Farmstay, hosts are required to;

Provide a relaxing family home environment.

Guests will be looking forward to staying with you and experiencing your farming lifestyle. A relaxed atmosphere without too many changes to your normal way of life is the best hosting environment.

Include the guests in the daily breakfast, lunch & dinner meals.

A bed is required for every guest however they may share a room.

Involve the guests with farming work

The highlight of the Farmstay is to be involved with farm animals. This could be in any form from just moving stock and feeding out to helping in the milking or shearing sheds. If you know guests are coming you may like to save a special chore that you think would interest the guests for when they are staying with you.

Transport

Hosts are required to collect their guests on the arrival day and drop them back to designated meeting locations on the departure day.

Payments

Hosting fees are paid once the farmstay has been completed.  Fees are paid by internet banking.  GST may be added and an invoice is required if host is registered.

Arrivals and Departures
