    We are a Chilean family with experience working throughout Patagonia who finally decided to settle in our farm in Alto Palena, an ideal place to combine daily farm work and a quiet stay next to forests and rivers. Helping us in the daily tasks of the field will allow them to experience a diversity of tasks on a family scale with the sole objective of being able to share and feel what it is like to live among the mountains of Patagonia.
