    Description

    My name is Cristian Ortega, my family lives in the Aysén region since the Colonization of Chilean Patagonia. Today my wife and daughters live on a 120 hectare farm 30 minutes from #Coyhaique, where we work to raise sheep, poultry, pigs, cows and our horse. We have to sow, harvest and feed the sheep / cows in winter, since here there is a lot of snow that leaves no grass for our animals, we must feed them in bales. We work cutting trees from the forest to make and repair fences. In summer we dedicate ourselves to doing #Agrotourism, they visit us to get to know poultry, learn to milk cows and eat Lamb Roast, which I prepare myself in an outdoor campfire.
    Since we lived in the countryside (almost 3 years), we have been very happy to enjoy the fruits of our work, such as: seeing sheep, cows and piglets being born, enjoying eating healthy eggs and activities together with tourists.
    There are chores to do every day, I would like help from time to time, while I like to share stories of life in Patagonia.

    Mi nombre es Cristian Ortega, mi familia vive en la región de Aysén desde la Colonización de La Patagonia Chilena. Hoy, mi esposa e hijas vivimos en una granja de 120 hectáreas a 30 minutos de #Coyhaique, donde trabajamos para criar ovejas, aves de corral, cerdos, vacas y nuestro caballo. Tenemos que sembrar, cosechar y dar alimento a las ovejas/vacas en invierno, ya que aquí hay mucha nieve que no deja pasto para nuestros animales, debemos darles el pasto nosotros en fardos. Trabajamos cortando del bosque árboles para hacer y reparar cercos. En verano nos dedicamos a hacer #Agroturismo, nos visitan para conocer las aves de corral, aprender a ordeñar vacas y comer Asados de Cordero, que yo mismo preparo en una fogata al aire libre.
    Desde que vivimos en el campo (casi 3 años), hemos sido muy felices al disfrutar de los frutos de nuestro trabajo, como por ejemplo: ver nacer las ovejas, las vacas y cerditos, disfrutar de comer huevos saludables y de las actividades junto a los turistas.
    Hay trabajo que hacer cada día, me gustaría una ayuda de vez en cuando, a la vez que me gusta compartir relatos de la vida en La Patagonia.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There are very few of us fortunate to have been born in Patagonia, to know it and live here, life here is expensive and tourists spend a lot of money to know only part of it. I offer my farm, my experience and stories so that travelers can learn first-hand what a Farmer is in Patagonia, at no cost to them.

    Somos muy pocos los afortunados de haber nacido en La Patagonia, conocerla y vivir aquí, la vida aquí es cara y el turista gasta mucho dinero en conocer sólo parte de ella. Yo ofrezco mi granja, mi experiencia y relatos para que el viajeros aprendan de primera fuente lo que es un Granjero en La Patagonia, sin costo para ellos.
