The farm is close to lakes, forests, vineyards, pubs and cafes. its about 5 min from town.

    We are a young Canadian/Argentine couple who communicate in English and Spanish. We both travel coast to coast in Canada and all of North America. We are happy to share our experience with you and give you good advice for your future stop in this beautiful country.

    We are looking for people with strong knowledge in gardening, carpentry, painting and housekeeping to help us with the renovation of the barn, the maintenance of the garden and the cleaning of the main house.

    We offer a comfortable shared accommodation, bathroom (shower and hot water), laundry with free soap, free breakfast from Monday to Friday, free bicycles, board games, yoga mats, guitar, books, outside chairs and fire pit (we provide free fire wood), kitchen with refrigerator and common dining room with access to WIFI.
    Volunteers are free to enjoy the herbs, vegetables and fruits from the farm.

    The free breakfast is served from 7:30 am to 8:30 am and includes:
    Bread of the day, coffee, tea, milk, sugar, jam, peanut butter and cereals.
    Pancakes and maple syrup twice a week.
    Pop Corn and marshmallows on Saturday and Sunday night.
