    To all workawayers: due to the Pandemic we haven't been able to take people on board, but promise soon we will get back to normal and with lots of projects to continue with..

    Hi, my name is Eber!

    I manage a small family run farm in the fresh forest hills overlooking Pitalito town. I am looking for volunteers who want to learn how to care of animals and and milk our beautiful dairy cow - , Niña, Niño and baby Cassy and Lola.
    also helping out with feeding and taking care of pigs and chickes.

    The workaway will include preparing the food and feeding the cows, caring for the health of the animals and administering medicine, cleaning and upkeep, landscaping and field work and, of course, the milking (which means you will have a nice fresh bottle milk for your coffee every morning!)

    I will provide everything you need to help with the cows and require only three to five hours of your time throughout the day. In this time, I´ll be around to give guidance and show you the ropes. The rest of the time, we can do language exchange and any other activities like going to town, helping to teach English. etc.

    By the way... we are not far away frome San Agustin Huila. It is a small town and very famouse for its heritage (The Archeological Park). 20 Minutes away from Pitalito city, we can find the Guaitipan lake , which is very nice place to go and enjoy a great day out too.

    We have basic rural accommodation on the farm, including private or sharing bedroom with beds and blankets, gas and wood kitchen, fridge, bathroom, shower and washing machine. We also have electricity and fresh spring water.

    As it is a small farm, I can currently take two volunteers maximum at a time.

    On the farm we have organically grown coffee, Oranges, lemons, plantano, mangos and herbs. This means that there is plenty of fresh fruit hanging around to eat. Also, depending on the season, I can teach how to plant, nurture and gather this food.

    If you work more than five hours, I will provide food for three daily meals also. Other opportunities that will be available include horticultural work (mentioned above), teaching English (I run a small school in Pitalito and speak fluent Engish) , babysitting (for a 3 years old son who is learning lenguages) and also construction work to begin on another farm project to be realized this year in a nearby pueblo.


    Note: If you wish to donate any unwanted books or material that can be used for English or language teaching, it is well recived, also I need help with some translation into your own native language. Thanks in Advance for your help.

    If you have any questions, please message me.

    I look forward to hearing from you… and so do the cows!

    Volunteers will be staying in beautiful ranch overlooking the Pitalito valley and expect lots of fresh air, wildlife and tranquility.

    They will also learn the practical "in and outs" of dairy cow farming, which is incredibly useful if they wish to build or manage a dairy farm themselves, not to mention the life noursishing experience.

    We will also be practising growing the fruit and vegetables we have on the farm and learning about our simple, ecological and substainable way of living, precious skills and knowledge that can help people looking to build sustainable homes or communities of their own.

    And of course, nurturing a relationship with the happy cows, becoming friends with them and understanding their quirky personalities. Beware: nobody can resist their charming ways!

    Last but not least They can learn Spanish!

    There is public transport to and from the farm every hour from the centre of Pitalito.

    There are forest paths around the farm, leading along the streams and up the mountain where there are many flowers and animals.

    We are 40 minutes from San Augustin archeological park, where the remains of ancient, precolombian civilizations can be visited. The little town is quaint and picturesque with a buzzing cosmopolitan culture.
