  • Description

    Description

    We are a German-Dutch couple with 2 sons, 6 and 4 years old. We are living on a wonderful piece of land far from any city, enjoying good neighborhood and friendship with the chilean people. We are building up our farm of 60ha, building our own eco house and the whole infrastructure and taking care of our animals (2 horses, 10 cows, 4 cats and a dog), as well as growing our vegetables and making our own bred and milk products. We always enjoy the help and company of other people, teaching and learning all about farming and construction.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Simple life with good food in a wonderful surrounding far from cities. Possibility to work and learn about gardening, cows, milking and making cheese and bread and eco construcción. Contact and exchange with neighbors and learning about traditional Patagonian (gaucho) life.
    We would like to share a good time together as everything is very basically and close together and we are 10 km from Palena. Until now it has always worked. If you can ride a horse, we have two good horses to discover the wonderful landscape with its mountain and rivers and to meet other people.

    The projects of 2021/22 are the finishing of the cheesery and as the other years the garden, the children, household and some animal care. We mainly need help with the garden, the household, our sons and if you're capable construcción. You can learn making bred and jogurt and growing vegetable. And of course for learning you can join us at any work we do. Of course, the longer you stay the more time we will take for teaching you. I hope you can understand...
    There will be some cows to be milked, but only twice a week to have milk products for our own consumption. We won't be in the whole production chain until we have finished the construction part...
