  • Description

    Description

    We are a family with three boys living on the farm together with 2 more ranch hands. We love the lifestyle of living on a farm and the flow of the seasons. Though we have a lot going on at the farm we fully enjoy the cultural exchange with our volunteers and their stories.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The ranch belongs to an NGO and our goals are to combine production with conservation. We have cows, sheep and horses that we manage holistically as well as a diversity of scientific projects that study native and exotic flora and fauna.

    You will be in touch with the local gauchos (cowboys) and the family that live on the farm.

    Dear Volunteers, afraid our summer season is fully booked now. But we are looking for a strong couple who know gardening to help set up our garden in october-november. Who is up to it?

    The work involves quite a bit of maintenance and physical work as well as work with animals. We need to set up our garden which was destroyed by the pigs.

    Depending on the season this could be anything from cleaning ditches, sowing beds, feeding animals, painting houses, fixing fences, building or repairing, herding cattle.

    You will stay in a cute cabin that has 2 bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen. It is possible that you will share the cabin with other volunteers. You cook your own food and we give you a basket weekly with groceries. The volunteer program runs from sep- march and we require a minimum stay of one month.

    If you are looking to settle down for a while, like nature, work hard and like animals this is truely a great ranching experience .

    We are very close to Bariloche and Dina Huapi (extension of Bariloche) where you can find supermarkets, post office, drugstore and ATM. A bus goes from Dina Huapi to Bariloche every 20 minutes.

    The surroundings of Bariloche offer extensive hiking paths and all other outdoor related activities.
