  • Description


    We're a couple, living in a small town on south of Minas Gerais State. Here we produce organic fruits and vegetables on agroforestry system.

    We are also rock climbers and trekkers, and every now and then we run to the mountains (20min drive).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Work is where we are able to teach about agroforestry, organic production, native animals, trees and fruits. Living with us, you are able to learn about our culture, language, food. We like to visit out neighbors, have a traditional afternoon coffee with cheese bread, exchange knowledge and seeds. Trust me, these afternoon coffee breaks are full of culture and have more food than granny's house!

    There's also lots of places for adventure sports nearby. Rafting, rock climbing, highline, trekking, camping.

  • Help


    We look for a pair of hands to help us at the farm. We'll work together harvesting, planting, taking care of the crops and everyday fixing. Yep... Things always need a fix at a farm.

    We also need help with our website (SEO), some good pictures and videos and also a hand on wordpress. But that's not priority.

    So if you want to get your hands full of dirt and morning dew, while drinking coffee with a amazing view and live on a nice cosy small town, you're the person we're looking for.

    There's no fixed schedule, but no laziness as well.
    To be strong, have farming experience, know how to drive a tractor, etc are NOT required. Work at the farm sometime are demanding, heavy, but I guarantee that you'll have fun over here!

  • Accommodation


    There are two houses. One at the farm, other at the city. We live at the city (2km away from the farm - 10min by bike). Here we have wi-fi, TV, chromecast, and everything a normal home has. We sleep at the farm only on really busy days, to make most of the time there.

    The city house have two bedrooms, one bathroom, living room, kitchen and a nice area outside. This is the house we'll all live together. So the travellers will share a bedroom. There is one double matt and one single.

    At the ranch, the house have 3 bedrooms, one bathroom, kitchen and living room.

    We'll provide breakfast, lunch, afternoon coffee and dinner.
    Usually our meals are (not all together)
    - Breakfast: eggs, cake, fruits, milk, bread, toast (about 7am)
    - Lunch: rice, beans, vegetables, meat, salad (midday)
    - Afternoon: cake, coffee, milk, cheese bread (about 4pm)
    - Dinner: same as lunch, sometimes pizza =) (whenever we're hungry)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The town is really small (9000 hab.). But it's 3 hours drive from São Paulo, 1:30h drive from Campinas and there are plenty of things to do around. Usually we go camping, climbing, trekking or just to a waterfall to swim.

    I can drive the traveller from/to a nearby bigger city, where you can get a better/faster bus to/from bigger cities.
