We are a certified organic farm that started out piiducing organic veggies and now produces almost exclusively pastured eggs and chicken. Our Project is very unique and provides a rich learning experience. The Farm is situated between the well known volcanic valley in the cordilleras of Panama and the pacific ocean. The farm contains a forest and maintains itself as a wildlife refuge to native species of flora and fauna.
We have many years of experience in organic agriculture and regenerative farming. Our Project has grown from a family farm to a production based Project, trying to balance sustainability, nature conservancy, social responsability with sound agribusiness principles.

We employ all native, women and men (equaly) who are only spanish speaking. The nature and the forest we have created is breathtaking. Also we are 20 mins from the culture mountain town El Valle and 15 mins from the beach.
Basic food is supplied, but volunteers cook their own. Much of the food is produced by the farm itself. Please let us know if you have special diet requirements. Please no vegans, since we are an animal production facility it makes accomodating vegans and vegetarians difficult.
Accomodations are off-grid, with solar so no blowdriers or curling irons, straightners may be used.
volunteers do not need any prior experience, just a heatlhy work ethic and a good sense or responsability. And will leave with a rich understanding of regenerative agriculture, ethical animal husbandry at its finest and a unique view of panamanian nature and culture. Although keep in mind it is a physical work environment.
