It's recommended arriving from March as the placement system works on a first come first served basis, however you need to be prepared for the possibility of a few weeks wait until the farming starts as this is all dependent on the weather. For those not requiring their farming days or whilst waiting for farm work to start, there is hospitality and retail work, especially during the tourist season which is mainly from June onwards.
