Dutch Farm Experience regularly receives requests from individuals who are seeking temporary (volunteer) work on a farm in the Netherlands. This can indeed be a very interesting experience!
It would be wise for you to choose a farm where you can learn from the latest innovations, which effectively combines old and new practices. For example an organic (dairy) farm, a farm with cheese making and/or local animal breeds, direct marketing efforts, care farm etcetera. You can find many examples of such farms on this Dutch Farm Experience website.
Meanwhile, at this point in time Dutch Farm Experience cannot provide direct linkages for volunteer work. But there are other good opportunities! The best one is to join WOOFF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) – a worldwide network that links volunteers with organic farms and growers. You can sign up at small cost (15 Euros) and then find the most suitable farm for you.
