We are a very nice community. There is always people visiting from all over the place but also they are chill farm days. We started this projects around 6 years ago because we like to eat healthy and we love animals. We have goats (for cheese), horses, chickens, dogs, turkeys, ostrich, peacock and some other wild animals like a lot of fireflies in the season.
Edgar is acupuncturist and he lives part in town and part in the farm. He knows a lot about plants and alternative medicine.
Eric is the one that keeps the place working as a general organizer. He knows about hospitality, business and horses. He studied marketing and he works with different boutique hotels around Mexico.
At our eco-ranch we have 10 full time local employers who each specialise in certain ranch activities such as working in our greenhouses, construction, property maintenance, or caring for and training the animals. Although the managers of the volunteer program speak fluent English and French, the local employees only speak Spanish which offers a great opportunity for those trying to improve their Spanish skills.
In terms of the volunteer accommodation offered: there is an entire volunteer house complete with a fully equipped kitchen, bathrooms, a little roof top gym that we are building, wood-fired pizza oven, numerous seating areas and two dorm-style and two private sleeping rooms, there are a number of private rooms else where on the ranch and a new volunteer building is currently in construction.

The people that works here are really nice and you can have real Mexican friends. We have a soccer team of the farm that plays every Sunday.
In this city live many interesting people, local artists of pottery and many other things. It is a place where you get to all the places walking, the people are very friendly ... We have a lake where many sports are practiced.
The help that we need depends on the volunteer. There is a lot of projects going on in the farm.
The vegetable garden needs lots of help If you enjoy getting your hand a "little bit" dirty, the garden its really nice. We are always building new things with the politic of using what we have. We recycle a lot.
There is one person per area (animals, garden, construction, hotel, plants...). So, you can decide with who do you want to help.
If you have any idea that we can do in the farm, is always welcome.

We have a volunteer house in the farm and when its full, we have some cool little spots close to the horses. Its a really nice place in construction.
We give you a house to live with everything you need but everybody buys his own ingredients to cook. There is a shop 5 min walking from the farm that you can find a little bit of everything there for a good price.
We have horses and lots of animals. We have people working with us, so you can meet people of the region.
We want volunteers to stay minimum 1 week and if you want to stay more than 1 month we decide here, to see if you like the place. We think that one of the most important things in life is to have a good attitude!!
