A remote 20-acre farm in Utuado, Puerto Rico. As a personal project, we are transitioning the farm from its previous use as a conventional coffee farm into a regenerative, carbon-fixing agroforest-style cacao and grape farm, using no chemicals or synthetic fertilizers.
We don't produce enough to sell but there are plenty of bananas, plantains, edible roots, papaya, and cacao beans for your personal consumption!
We are looking for a person or couple to stay for at least 3 months and help with the farm and taking care of animals (dogs, cat, chickens) in exchange for lodging in an independent one bedroom apartment with kitchen and bathroom.
Located in the center of Puerto Rico, this is the perfect place to reconnect with nature away from the chaos of city and tourist destinations. We have great wi-fi so you can bring your own remote work.
Please note that Puerto Rico has almost no public transportation and the farm is very remote (and peaceful). It is difficult to get around without a car.

Spanisch: Gute Kenntnisse
You will stay in our downstairs apartment, equipped with a bathroom and functional kitchen (full-size fridge, small oven/stove, and sink).
You will have your own space and be responsible for most of your own meals.
The house is 100% powered by a solar photovoltaic system.
Hot water is provided by a solar water heating system.
Rainwater is collected and filtered for drinking and bathing.
The farm is at 2,700 feet so stays fairly cool all year long.
Bring your natural bug repellent (or use ours) because there are no-see-ums.
Speaking Spanish is helpful but not required.
The nearest grocery store is in Jayuya about 40 minutes away.
There is almost no public transportation on the island so a car is highly recommended...if you are fine with just staying put once here and are staying a month, we will pick you up from the airport and take you back.
