    Workaway Note: Please contact this host in Spanish

    We are a family of five, living in a farm in Dalcahué (Chiloé Province). We are running a small restaurant selling typical food of the area such as: curanto, potato tortillas, or milcaos.
    We are creating an educational farm, 3km away from the city, showing poultry, sheeps and pigs among others. In this farm we are also growing native organic plants of the area, such as potatoes, garlic, vegetables and medicinal herbs.
    Moreover, we are building a new house to receive more volunteers.
