We are a German-Dutch couple with 2 sons, 5 and 3 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 (4 horses, 8 cows, 2 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.

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 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 2020/21 are the finishing of the inside of the house, the building of the cheesery and as the other years the garden, the children, household and some animal care. We mainly need help with our sons and the garden and if you're capable construcción. Our sons are always happy about company. If you can take care of them, we can go on building. Apart from that you can help with the garden, household, cooking and making bred and jogurt. 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...
Basic and rustical: a room with your own kitchen, outside shower (with warm water when the sun is shining) and outside toilets. Outside is plenty space with a roof next to a waterfall, where you can make fire. We eat together a warm lunch. Breakfast and dinner on your own. (We provide you with the food.) From January on we have vegetables from our garden, milk, cheese and yogurt from our cows, self made bred... Sometimes meat. Alcohol and sweets are not included and can be bought ~ once a week in Palena.
In free time you can go walking in the mountain, fishing, horse riding (only if you are able to ride) and meeting other people. Or just enjoy the pure nature around us. For transportation come by bus to Palena and we get you.
