AQUEBOGUE, N.Y. – It started with an ad on Craigslist: Free holiday on an organic farm on Long Island, work for your keep and enjoy wineries and great beaches nearby.

The farm would even supply transportation from New York City and bicycles to get around once you arrive. All a friend and I had to do was take the subway to a farmers market in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn and a van would pick us up.

That sounds awesome! I'm off this summer (I work in a school cafeteria). I'm going to check out one of the events. I LOVE hiking/camping/trails. Thanks a lot!

I hate to be the voice of reason, but I'd say the idea sounds great, but pls be careful. If you're planning to do the "free" holiday, pls go as a couple or a group at least. Be sure you have a charged cell phone (although I doubt you'll get reception) and a couple of other emergency supplies.
