    Ecological family farm. Our goal is to be self-sustainable. We produce vegetables in an ecological way, we raise smaller animals (chickens, rabbits, fish) and seasonally we have milk production. Ecological agriculture is promoted on this farm.
    Various ecological techniques are applied to crops and other tasks. We do not use just one formula, as we like to research and learn new ways of doing things, that is why we are interested in exchanging knowledge and experiences that enrich our lives as farmers and as human beings. In our production we take care of developing our own inputs such as fertilizers, fertilizers, fungicides, etc.
    We are interested in meeting people through workaway whose lives are involved in some way with organic production or an ecological lifestyle such as food production and transformation, permaculture, bio-construction, healthy cooking and sustainable development projects. for the family and the community. People who want to learn, teach and who are also willing to sweat because the work on the farm is hard. The geography of the area where we are located, being mountainous, can make the tasks more arduous. However, we hope that the people who visit us want to live a real experience of how to work on an ecological farm.
    The farm's work includes activities such as preparing fertilizers, preparing the land, sowing, fertilizing, monitoring, weeding, fertilizing, preparing bio-preparations, harvesting, transforming food on a very small scale and caring for minor animals.

    Granja ecológica familiar. Nuestra meta es ser autosostenibles. Producimos hortalizas de forma ecológica, criamos animales menores (gallinas, conejos, peces) y por temporadas tenemos producción de leche. En esta finca se fomenta la agricultura ecológica.
    Se aplican diversas técnicas ecológicas a los cultivos y demás labores. No utilizamos sólo una fórmula, pues nos gusta investigar y aprender nuevas formas de hacer las cosas, por eso nos interesa intercambiar conocimiento y experiencias que enriquezcan nuestra vida como agricultores y como seres humanos. En nuestra producción nos encargamos de elaborar nuestros propios insumos como abonos, fertilizantes, fungicidas, etc.
    Nos interesa conocer personas a través de workaway cuyas vidas estén involucradas de algún modo con la producción ecológica o un estilo de vida ecológico como la producción y la transformación de alimentos, la permacultura, la bio-construcción, la cocina saludable y proyectos de desarrollo sostenible para la familia y la comunidad. Personas que quieran aprender, enseñar y que también estén dispuestas a sudar porque el trabajo de la finca es duro. La geografía del área donde estamos ubicados, por ser montañosa, puede hacer que las labores sean más arduas. Sin embargo, esperamos que las personas que nos visiten quieran vivir una experiencia real de cómo se trabaja en una finca ecológica.
    El trabajo de la finca incluye actividades como preparación de abonos, preparación de terreno, siembra, fertilización, monitoreo, deshierbe, abonamientos, elaboración de bio-preparados, cosecha, transformación de alimentos a muy pequeña escala y cuidado de animales menores.
